What I liked

The show is chock full of tasty toe-tapping songs, dance numbers, and uplifting and inspiring “good feels.” This is a tremendously talented ensemble cast of “nerds” and “bullys” who, together with a very handy “invention,” teach and encourage how and when to take that stand. Bring all of your kids and your neighbors, their teachers, their administrators, and the whole of LAUSD. Bring them now.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

So far, this is my favorite musical to come out of Hollywood Fringe this year. Remember how you felt the first time you performed in, or even saw, your first high school or college musical? Remember that giddy excitement that sent warm shivers down your spine, instilling a feeling that told you this is how it should always be? If for some reason you’ve since lost that passionate feeling about musical theatre, then
The Bully Problem will resurrect it.
