Horrible songs, horrible writing, attractions choreography, barely passable acting. The worst Lyric stage show I've ever seen. Stay away!

I enjoyed the show. It dragged a little in parts but the actors keep you evolved. There were some very moving poignant songs that resonated with me long after the show ended. As always, a very good usage of the available space.

the seats were great. The singers were not very powerful and should have been on mics. At times the live band was overpowering them.

The actors were very good but needed much stronger singers for a production like this. This is a musical not a...continued

I liked the music, but I think the subject of working was not a happy one. It makes one think of all the jobs one might have done or the way life could have been different. It's definitely not a happy musical

Did not like the play at all. I fell asleep for a good 10 minutes. The songs were mediocre. The music and lyrics were not at all memorable.

The cast was very good, but the play was only fair - obvious song lyrics, uninspired choreography, and direction that was underwhelming. Not every book needs to be turned into a musical. This is one example of a superb book becoming a mediocre...continued

The show was pretty shallow and trite...not a lot of meat on the bones. Half of the 6 actors were moderately talented, the others not so much. Not one of the better shows we have seen in Boston lately.

LOVED the show: the actors/singers were terrific; the set was amazing; the adaptation of the book vignettes were impressive!

It was a very energetic, exciting, poignant production. I was anticipating difficulty projecting Studs Terkel's book via a musical, but they did a great job!

Theater was nice; the show was ok, the cast was definitely good and did justice, but the show itself isn't all that well put together. A couple of nice songs. I did wish for a little bit of amplification on the voices especially when they were...continued

For the most part, the concept of the show, as well as the music and acting were great - but it lacked a certain pizazz. I don't know if it was the acoustics, but the singing left me flat. I would have enjoyed the songs so much more if they had...continued

I really liked the theater but thought the tickets were a little expensive considering it was a small theater with minimal staging. The actors were great.

Not as impressed with the content as I was with the performers, they all did a great job. Could have left out the f-bombs, we hear enough of that language every day anyway, and not everyone appreciates it.

The cast was great. The musical itself was not very good at all.
