The songs and choreography were fantastic, the characters are well-drawn, and the story structure is really solid. The themes and situations do a wonderful job of highlighting the problems of technology in our day to day lives, it's effect on us as a society and as individuals, and does a good job of telling both sides of the story, creating real conflict and emotional tension. I was totally in for the ride. The show abounds with incredibly well-done and synced video footage. Ironically, this becomes a huge detriment to the show. NARSOCITEY shines a spotlight on the fact that we are all drawn too much to "the screen" and then implements a huge screen onstage which draws the audience's eye. Whenever something was on screen, I watched - an... full review

The show has a really valid and thought provoking message about the use and abuse of social media. And it delivers that message with a LOT of humor, which is so crucial! The songs are all really catchy and most of them serve the show really well. The leads are well developed and likeable and the actors playing them were very cute together. The choreography was super effective and done really well, and the entire show was incredibly polished. I highly suggest Narsociety!... full review

I had a delightful time and I highly recommend this show! The lyrics are witty, lol-worthy, and poignant. The concept is smart and well-carried out. The choreo is superb and I'm not someone who commonly comments on that aspect. The cast is strong overall, mostly made of excellent movers and vocalists with a few who pull their weight in other ways like stronger acting, etc. This cast brings it with their energy and the ensemble offer a lot of fun and commitment to their roles. I almost snuck out because the show ran 6 minutes over slotted time and I ended up missing a show that I got to just way too late to see, but I'm glad I stayed because the closing number is absolutely fantastic. I got nervous for a second as far as content, but a ... full review

A fun and entertaining musical. The musical numbers had me tapping my foot. The dance numbers were well choreographed and the expression of the performers had me watching their actions. I enjoyed the story and the journey of this musical show.... full review

Okay… so you don’t have to like the subject matter, but if you’re doing a play about Social Media… it is not P.C.! Okay… you can complain about the obvious…. Some voices weren’t what they should be, but for the most part there were a lot of talented voices up there! Okay… there was a video and live action…. And some might have detracted from the other…. But… You know what… let’s drop the critiques…. Someone needs to acknowledge…. the gigantic task Chris Valenti put upon himself. 1st. Outside of the Fringe World, musicals of this size and length don’t see the light of an audience unless they have been put up and broken apart in major Musical Theatre Programs like ASCAP, BMI or MTW…. This is purely a passion project by the director / pr... full review

This looks like something that could be developed into a longer piece. It felt ready to go, but needed a bigger budget. So that's pretty darn cool.... full review
