I went with a group of about 20 people. 19 out of those 20 people liked and would recommend this show. I am the 1 of 20 who didn't. And since this is my review, I only give it 2 out of 4 Goldstars. Why? Because, in my opinion, they "forgot the...continued

Good actors, on the verge of hams... Topic and script were insulting to both Americans and Arabs.

Even with the sound glitch during opening night, this is a great play. I thought the script was quick-witted and entertaining. The actors did a great job. The music and sound effects really contributed to the message and style of the play. I...continued

It was just okay. The acting was disjointed and some of the characters were not believable.

Very well acted & each and every actor went above and beyond. The theater was very nice and the ample parking a treat. If you have the time I would highly recommend this performance.

I had never been to this theater. The theater was nice and the actors were good. There were some very amusing lines; however, the show seemed poorly written overall. It seemed to drag on for me.

We parked on the street and had no trouble...continued

The comedy was a little forced, and not all the characters were bearable. A little political commentary at the end soured it for me...... I guess one should expect that the theater crowd is more liberal than not, but I'm tired of Bush Bashing.......continued

I really like the Raven Theater venue, it's the only reason I didn' rate Misamerica lower. The premise and basic story seemed interesting enough, the production values were decent but the dialog and acting were sophomoric. It seemed like most of...continued

Frighteningly funny; a painful yet humorous look at our dominant culture.

We enjoyed the first 10 - 15 minutes or so, but after that we didn't really enjoy it much. The free parking lot next to the theater was nice.

This was a very entertaining play, asking us to consider our "values" as Americans. What in the world do we think we're doing?

It was very funny and the acting was very good. The play had non stop activity and it held my attention the entire show.

It starts a little slow, but by the end you realize you've laughed out loud many times. The story could have been overdone and isn't. Good show, I'd recommend it to friends.
