Clever, Intelligent, Original, Relevant, Slow

See it if you have strong political ideas about Hillary and Bill, and the political situation in general, and don't mind being slightly bored.

Don't see it if You are a dyed in the wool Republican or love big ticket Broadway musicals with lots of pizzaz and no intelligent content

Cliched, Dated, Disappointing, Funny, Quirky

See it if You enjoy tame political satire.

Don't see it if you hate musicals which have terrible scores and never rise above the level of a good but not great SNL skit.

"This production offers many laughs as well as entertaining moments…Under Kurlander’s intricate direction, 'Votes' presents a moving and personal picture of the real lives and feelings of an extremely powerful couple in America…The chemistry between Wright-Mathew and Miller is thrilling to witness…'Votes' will give audiences something to smile about...Entertaining, whimsical, and smart, 'Votes' is just the ticket."

"Tired of the parody that is our current political situation? Chill, take a deep breath, and amble over to see 'Votes,' a musical about the Clintons purporting to show how they arrived where they are and what was lost along the way...This is a lighthearted look at a dark landscape but although it pulls no punches, it’s neither mean nor preachy...I’ll not divulge the dénoument; suffice it to say it takes a different tone, more fable or morality tale than the acerbic plain talk that led up to it."

Front Row Center
April 4th, 2016

"There is no real character development, no understanding of what events lead from then to now, and no knowledge of how songs are supposed to work in a musical with one exception…Mr. Miller’s fine voice and performance actually touches us with something human in an otherwise overwrought and off-putting political diatribe. For two hours we are subject to the astonishing information that power corrupts and all politicians are crooked, really?"
