Recommendation: Don’t see it unless you’re a die-hard social justice warrior and special snowflake lover.
Rating (Out of 5 Stars): 2 stars
Negatives: Plot was overly simplistic, underdeveloped, hallmark-y, and mostly boring.
Story, Script, and Lyrics: They advertised this as “A Sensory Experience in Two Acts.” Apparently the first act was the musical and the “second act” was an art show.
First Act: The musical followed the struggles of socially awkward kid who gets overly-stimulated easily and paints/draws to cope. The “moral of the story” was that everyone is special and contributes something worthwhile to society (I’m gagging).
Second Act: The “second act” art show consisted of paintings by a local (mentally-challenged?) artist who I assume the main character is based on. I’m no visual art critic but I wasn’t too impressed by the works. Just because someone picks up a brush doesn’t mean they’re an artist.
Cast and Theater Company: Cast wasn’t bad. Though I assume the non-main characters had limited experience in the theater.
