This play was much darker than the description on Goldstar. The lead actor suffered from anxiety disorder and believe me, I needed an Xanax during the show. The music, acting and set were very well done.

A very energetic evening about teens struggling with individual issues and angst as they prepare their garage band for a Battle of the Bands performance. The young cast is exceptional, and veteran Annie Golden fits right in having a grand time....continued

Brought back many memories as previously lived in Long Island and I was a professor at Nassau Community College. Great job done by the whole cast.

VERY talented cast....great venue (not a bad seat)...
found it a bit hard to connect in the first act, but very triumphant ending.

Other than the mistake of meaning to add one ticket to my already purchased 3 tickets and had 7 waiting for me at will call…it was an enjoyable evening spent with good friends. Very talented performers. Story line a bit weak a lot of teen angst.

Had a good premise but fell short on delivery. Not a lot of good songs and a bit flat and off key on parts of them. Way too long, almost tortuous sitting there listening to inane angst songs.
Half of our row was gone after the intermission, they...continued

I walked out on a show at intermission for only the second time in my life. My date and I were incredibly jealous of the people in front of us who walked out after the third song. The only good thing I can say about the show is that the young...continued

The cast was very talented but the show was way too long and the music was monotonous/boring. It seemed like a total rip off of Freaks and Geeks, but without anything worth saying. The score was a waste of talent, the actors deserved better.

The play needs quite a bit of tightening up. None of the leads, except the goofy guy, wow-ed me. There were a couple of good scenes but overall it felt like a high school performance.

At first we weren't certain if we liked it very much but, as it went on we really liked it a lot. The performers were terrific and we found it very
"Chorus Line" like as we got into each characters hang ups and problems.

The cast didn't have any chemistry and didn't seem interested.

Very entertaining show. Loved the pre-show activities! Entertaining for all ages but maybe too mature of subject matter for kids under 13.

Nice energy and acting, good story, the voice of the lead was excellent, but most of the songs were rather lame...

We enjoyed the whole evening -- we liked the cast a lot and especially enjoyed Annie Golden's performance.

The first act had a lot of promise but the second act didn't fulfill the promise. The set was terrific -- it's versatility was...continued

Great, intimate theater, but Black Suits was disappointing. I found the music, script, and talent quite mediocre.

Our seats were great - close to the middle in this small theater. Perfect view and sound. Very casual place, with free parking across the street at City Hall. Decent restaurants right near by all had a long wait time so we had to settle for fast...continued
