I liked it, but didn't love it. skits are just like SNL, they are hit and miss. Some parts of the show are really fun, others not so much. I wish they would do more with props, set changes, and use of video (technology).

This is a series of skits all generally related to our current political scene. It was very good. While still a work in progress (I attended a preview) the bits were very good with few exceptions. The cast was talented and the venue quite nice...continued

I have always been a fan of BNW but this one is one of their best. A must see if you are current on the political issues. Fast paced and funny, seasoned with plenty of gender humor. I might have to see it again as I’m sure I missed some of it...continued

This production was hilarious. It certainly didn't disappoint in the entertainment factor. I can hardly wait for the Christmas show!

Just not funny. Unfortunately, there were few laughs. It was more like a play than comedy. The early reviews may have been from friends or family. Based on this show, I would not recommend BNW. Even with the discount, I felt it was a waste of...continued

A show of political satire, the cast makes fun of both Romney and Obama. Different skits take a comical look at how we view the candidates and issues.

The usual bunch o' fun from this amazing troupe. Some really funny stuff, and I can't wait to see what goes into the finalized show. I'll probably see this a few more times over the coming months. Only one bit of feedback: even if it's coming...continued

Hilarious! I found myself laughing out loud throughout the entire show. It is a BNW performance you must see if you are tired of the nasty election process we have to endure. The cast is fabulous. The new theater is wonderful and the service...continued

Troupe was great. Political humor is their specialty and this show was timely and well written and acted. Very funny. They even included a current event that happened one day earlier!

This was probably my least favorite Brave New Workshop show. Not being savvy in politics, I found that I missed a lot of the jokes in this show. Also, I thought a lot of the skits were going strong but then ended abruptly and randomly. But per BNW...continued

This was a preview show which was explained as a way for the Brave New Workshop to test ideas and vignettes out on the audience to see what goes over well. Apparently, for any show, they write four times as many scenes as will be used in the final...continued

Witty, Sacrilegious, surprisingly informed, no prisoners taken. I saw the pre-lims and they have taken the best of what worked and continue to add new material as the political landscape changes...Can hardly wait to see what they are going to do...continued

An excellent show, with some of the segments.... beyond excellent (what would that be called?)
This is the show you wish every bonehead relative and neighbor could see.
