When I saw the description for this show, I immediately bought tickets. I also did not tell my roommate what we were seeing for this one, as she's a Disney fan and I wanted to see what her reaction to a show like this was going to be. And I almost feel like EVERYONE should take a real Disney fan with them when they go to see this show if they aren't one themselves--because this show is SO INSPIRED by Disney that you need to know HOW GOOD it actually is, and it IS THAT GOOD.

To all who come to this happy show, welcome. It may skid to a stop in a few places, but it soars in others. It's funny, it's cynical, it's weird, and you'll definitely walk away with something to talk about. Come for the laughter, stay for the old guy in the seat next to you muttering to his wife about how inappropriate it all is. And please don't ask about Club H. ... full review
