What I liked

I was so excited to see this and it did not disappoint. The acting was wonderful, and the characters were very clear and recognizable – I totally knew these people in middle school. Great physicality choices that really sold the age of the characters too.

The script was clever, unexpectedly touching at times, and VERY funny.

Loved the lighting design!

The Stalin fanfiction had me laughing even after the show had ended.

What I didn't like

The pacing was a bit slow at times, specifically the transitions feeling a tad drawn out. Moving through those quicker would allow the fast paced, high stakes nature of the script to shine through.

Some lines were also hard to hear from the back, so just a bit more projection from a few of the cast members.

I would have loved more exploration of lil bitch’s character in the script, the scene with big bitch was so good, I think centering her a little more earlier on could help that moment feel more earned as an audience member.

But still, all little things, overall an amazing night out and an incredible show!

My overall impression

An amazing concept with a fantastic cast and stand-out script!
