Finally a review of this show that matches my feelings about it. With a script full of cliches (a shadowy mega-conglomerate corporation which engages in exactly what kind of business? a "safe zone? seriously???? the haves and the have-nots? How many times have we seen THAT?) The poor cast was handed lines like, "I'll make him pay," and asked to speak them seriously. Matt Sax, whose lyrics are about as deep as a kiddie pool, rattles off his words with style but they say very little and his character is pointless. The rest of the cast tries so hard but their talents are wasted on this. It's been a long time since I've been this disappointed at The Public.

I would dissent only in that I would give it zero stars if I were allowed. It wasn't just bad, it was an insult to my intelligence--an attempt at profundity by writers who have nothing to say.

I just want to chime in with a dissenting opinion and say that this is one of the best musicals I've seen in some time. I, too, wanted to bolt -- at the end of the show, to the box office, to buy more tickets for it. I guess it's not everyone's boat, but I found the storytelling exciting rather than ungainly and the style inviting rather than pretentious. Go in with an open mind, knowing that the above review is but one person's opinion.
