What I liked

Ya’ll. This cast is stellar, with big shoutouts to Sherry Berg as a spot on impression of Carrie, Amanda Hootman with a delightful Charlotte and gorgeous singing chops, Alli Miller who was born to play this version of Samantha, and Aaron Matijasic who crushes with an eerily close resemblance of Stanford and a great voice. The story as a prequel to the first season works well for both fans and non-fans alike, and much of the writing was really killing. Using the recorded voice overs for Carrie’s column a la the TV show was a great choice. My first time seeing a Wiley Production after sadly missing Buffy Kills Edward and she crushed it.

What I didn't like

I’m a sucker for a live band, so I would have loved to see live music, but a lot of the songs are electronic-based dance tracks, so I understand that choice!

My overall impression

A spot-on parody in terms of the characters, with some really hilarious and impressive writing/vocalists.
