Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...This new ensemble-written comedy from Brain Surgeon Theater shows glimmers of drag-queenish wit here and there, but it also has long stretches of stupid--usually involving the subhuman intelligence of the cablecast's crew members. The pacing of Gwen Tulin's production feels sluggish in places. Still, she deserves credit for orchestrating a fantastically tacky musical finale that outshines everything preceding it."

"...Calling the cheesy, insipid mess now onstage at Prop Thtr a musical is a bit like calling gang-banger graffiti fine art. Maybe I'm being too kind. I felt shock and embarrassment for the six cast members. And I can't even blame the playwright because the program states the show as "written and developed by the ensemble". I have seen completely improvised shows with tighter form, greater inspiration and more polish."
