What I liked

how fun, cheesy, and over the top it was, the performances, the band, the stage crew, the props, costumes, and set pieces

What I didn't like

There were some bumps technically, but I’m sure they’ll be sorted out for the official opening night. The only thing that actually bothered me is the title of the songs in the show and that they give away the punchline most of the time in the title—this is no fault of the production itself, but of the licensing company. I’d advise not reading the song titles before watching the show—the punchlines will be much funnier!

My overall impression

An excellent piece of work from this cast of 5 with standouts being Wesley and Danny, White Dude and Black Dude, respectively, playing numerous characters each, without looking like they were going to pass out or become winded. Mad props for the stamina of the entire cast and crew! The Mayor was hilarious, Sarah has a rich, flirty voice, and Toxie rips at your heart strings—he’s just trying to be a good guy. The performances are spectacular!
