COMMENTS:

You Again: A Musical About Cloning revolved around a high school of misguided students and their principles attempt to make them better students by cloning. The concept of this show in theory seemed to be a hit, but it was definitely a miss. The show could not keep my interest at all, partly due to the fact that most if not all of the songs were so monotone. There was little to no change in emotion throughout the production. A few actors did shine through the darkness, but it was not enough to save this production.


POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

This show will most likely drop of the radar as soon as its fringe run is complete. It's only hope is the local community theatre.

Oh my! Everytime the music started I cringed at what was coming. I know a lot of work goes into preparing a show, but in this case it was time not well spent. Sorry.

I don't know if the director and/or writer planned for the voices to be so monotone alllll the time, but if so, it was truely a mistake. The theatre had a lot of empty seats after intermission with good reason. I completely agree with the rating you gave this one.
