      This show is absolutely hilarious! Of course, that is the appeal, it’s a musical comedy. It’s probably one of the funniest, if not THE funniest musical comedy I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen some good ones!

      The soundtrack itself is great. With song titles such as “The Internet is for Porn,” “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist,” and “You Can Be As Loud As the


      Hell You Want (When You’re Makin’ Love),” one would of course expect some laughs, but the soundtrack had me in stiches the first time I heard it, and still makes me laugh.

      But the songs aren’t the only source of humor. The dialogue, the blocking and choreography, and the plot itself are all rich sources of hysterical laughter. I thought watching it would be a little awkward because there were a bunch of elderly men in front of me, but I laughed so hard I forgot they were there!

      And the subject matter rings true, at least it did for me. As much as we want to pretend we’re not racist, let’s admit it, we all make judgements based on race sometimes. Come on, everyone has ...

      laughed at a racist joke at least once.

      It’s easy to relate to Princeton, the protagonist. He’s fresh out of college, he has no idea what to do with his life, he’s living in a somewhat crummy neighborhood but it’s something, and life pretty much sucks for everyone for one reason or another. There’s every kind of person - the Asian stereotype, the perverted

      porn-addict, the idiots who try to get you to do stupid stuff (those Bad Idea Bears are so cute, but they’ll lead you astray if you’re not careful), the slut, and the innocent girl wanting to make a difference but sometimes makes mistakes. The characters face issues that everyone faces at some point.

      There’s something in this show for everyone, it’s definitely a show worth seeing.
