How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This new musical boarders on greatness, but misses the mark. Aside from the rather strange staging that caused me to get some whiplash because the action happens simultaneously on both sides of the audience, the musical had a lot of good points. It is all about an 50 year old guy and the hustler he hires for a night. All the usual disfunction is on display, along with a greek chorus drag queen offering commentary. The biggest issue that I had with the production was that it appeared that the 2 main characters really dont like each other very much-- In the play or in real life. There is no chemistry between them, and the production quickly descends into being about 2 rather unlikable characters playing out their respective disfunction. In the end, I didnt care for or identify with either character. The music is good, the drag queen has an amazing voice.
