Terrific show. Talented cast. Excellent job! (I would have given this six stars -- but Goldstar only allows five -- because Tom Orr did a one-handed cartwheel.)

Any fan of musicals needs to see this show. I laughed until tears rolled down my cheeks.

Just as fun as I remember the last time I caught Tom Orr's hysterical revue! There were apologies for bringing back some golden oldies from past versions but no apologies are necessary when this show is this terrific start to finish. Yes, it's...continued

This was hilarious! Truly entertaining, although it would have been better if I knew the songs they had changed the lyrics too. Still, I had a great time and my face hurt from laughing and smiling so much. A very intimate theater, I felt like they...continued

A hoot if you're gay, and/or very comfortable with gay topics and innuendo. Fun lyrics and cute spoofs of some very familiar showtunes. The guys are pretty easy on the eyes, too. We were glad we went and walked out grinning.

Honestly, I did not know it was a gay venue; once I got over the surprise I loved it.

Tom Orr writes some very clever paradies on familiar show tunes and this production is fast paced, some great clothes (and high heels!), but I felt the staging was awkward at times, especially with the steps by the piano. The voices did justice...continued

Great choreography, lyrics, stage energy, and fun factor. Voice quality, not as good. Still a good way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

I always enjoy the shows at the New Conservatory Theatre but this one takes the cake. Very clever and very original, two of my favorite things. Tom did his best to shock us with his words and then soothe us with a good laugh all in the same...continued

Absolutely love this show. Mr. Orr has captured a bit of theater magic with his parodies which ride a delicate balance of the original song intent with "bust your gut" belly laughs, with quite a few extremely touching moments along the way.

What a show! Hilarious, and witty. One amazing parody of Sound of Music, West Side Story, Chorus Line, Mame, etc after another, plus cameo shots/mentions of other plays, musicals. Sondheim showed well, and "Over the Rainbow" was about buying too...continued

Tom Orr is always good fun. I think this is the third iteration of Showtunes that I've seen, and I've enjoyed them all, although after a while the campiness gets a little predictable. Orr is terribly clever with his lyrical twists, and the...continued

Though I may not have been the ideal demographic for this show, I truly appreciated the brilliant parody lyrics of Tom Orr, and the really top-flight performances by the cast of five and the wonderful music direction by Scrumbly Koldewyn. A very...continued

This show is screaming fabulous. I can't say enough, wait, yes i can. The lyrics aren't just great but superb really quite outstanding. Each member shined and their connection with the audience remained totally connected throughout. Rave.

Very enjoyable parodies of popular Broadway showtunes. This is the 16th season that Tom Orr has authored this program, so he must be doing something right.
