What I liked

What I didn't like

My overall impression

Generally strong performances buoy but can’t really save this sort-of-amusing show that aims for the irreverence of Urinetown but is rarely that clever. Wesley Tunison and Danny Fetter have fun in multiple roles, Jared Reed distinguishes well between nerdy Melvin and his hero alter ego, and Kim Dalton displays sharp comic timing plus pulls off the neat trick of believably playing blind. Even the stage crew gets some laughs. But the book is more silly-dumb than silly-funny, the score is mediocre, and it does wear on. Excellent costumes. I saw show 1, so I assume sound issues will be fixed and pacing will tighten up.
