Relevant, Funny, Entertaining, Great singing, Great score

See it if Fun musical of the musical. Great music and lyrics. Great talent/singing. Smart staging. FUN!! Clever.

Don't see it if At 2hr45m it could be shortened, though every song has its place.

Energetic, Delightful, Great singing, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You are a fan of the movie, teen comedies or LGBTQ stories. Cast is amazing. Show is lots of fun, great musical numbers.

Don't see it if You dislike teen comedies. It’s a little too long and could use some trimming and fine-tuning but altogether very fun.

Funny, Great acting, Great singing, Relevant, Quirky

See it if you've seen the movie, or not! The show is sweet and proud and unapologetically celebrates queer love. The cast are stellar.

Don't see it if You're expecting perfection - it still needs a bit of work and a couple of the songs are unnecessary, slowing the story down.

Refreshing, Relevant, Quirky, Great singing

See it if you want a funny and affirming musical that deals with serious issues in a light hearted way

Don't see it if you prefer a more sedate and serious show

Funny, Dated, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if U enjoy an entertaining evening out, there are some fantastic actors in the production and the singing makes up for any weak musical numbers

Don't see it if It does feel a little dated, the set is a little basic but it’s not at a huge venue and there’s a brewery next door!

Don't see it if I can’t think of a reason not to… I guess it’s cheesy but I’d never say that’s a bad thing!!

The London Evening Standard

I feel like I’m kicking a small, cute animal here, as this show is undeniably fun and admirable. It’s the first full production to emerge from the Turbine Theatre’s Musical Theatre Festival: I just don’t think it’s totally ready yet.

This is a rollicking good time, but it has a serious heart and a keen wit. It's bubblegum with razor blades. Utterly irresistible.

But I’m a Cheerleader is great fun and in several way parallels the musical Hairspray in terms of music and social message. Azevedo’s production threatens to burst off the stage several times and hopefully it will get an opportunity to do just that.

You have to read the programme to catch just how dangerous the still legal quack therapy is, so this stuff isn’t just serious, it’s relevant...The songs are peppy and poppy, but the score lacks the 11 o’clock number that would lift a second half that flags..

The Guardian (UK)

Still, this is a story that deserves attention. Gay conversion practices continue to be legal in the UK. Although the musical is rooted firmly in comedy, it shines a light on the horrors of such unethical treatments.

But at the moment, But I’m A Cheerleader is in its tricky pubescent period. There’s a nugget of musical theatre gold at its core, it just needs to mature and hit adulthood to finally blossom.
