How was your experience?
I might have given it two stars, as lots of other people seemed to find enjoyment in it, and it was cute, but it was not what I expected, and I personally really didn't like it and feel bad for the cast being in such a horrible show. I often compare shows based on rating and choose the one with the higher rating from more reviews, but it lead me wrong this time. It is described as "witty", and while there were a couple of funny moments, it was mostly a bunch of terrible puns and one-liners and not-actually-very-comedic random references to stuff that the writer expected the crowd to laugh at. There is obviously some talent in the cast, but the writing is absolutely horrible, and to sit through about 20 unrelated little songs with no connecting storyline full of this incredibly dull and shallow attempt at humor was no good. Sad to have spent the money I did on this with my limited budget for attending shows. :( If you're attending, I'd suggest having a couple of drinks beforehand. My partner, who attended with me simply comments that "trite" is the best description.
