Audience reviews

Flakes

By Jake Sullivan / August 8, 2013
This user has reviewed 3 shows

Flakes has some crazy talented singers in it. However, to rehash what seems to have already been said, the book is juvenile, and absurd to the point where you wonder where the plot was. To reiterate: seriously talented performers performing to their best what little they were given.

Well performed dreck

By Andrew Troth / August 7, 2013

Here's the good thing: The cast is talented. The singing was all good (except for some sound balance issues, and lyrical clarity suffered in the group numbers), and the acting was all at least competent.

The problem here is the material. Inappropriate? I love inappropriate. That's not what this is. This is a revolting, confused mishmash of horribleness. I'll leave it at that.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm

There was some wonderful singing, however the show was filled with middle school humor that lacked combined with sexual content which seemed very out of place while small children were present in the scenes.

Overall, it was an hour of my life that I lost and will never get back. I would pass on this show.

Poltential Over Powered by Piano

By Tim Torgerson / August 5, 2013
This user has reviewed 3 shows

There is potential to this show however the electric piano over powers the singers so it is hard to hear what they are saying. A lot of actors and a lot going on. Really needs to be reworked. I would pass on this show.

This show had some talented actors but it was self indulgent and messy. I agree with the other reviewer regarding the poor judgement of casting children in a raunchy sex romp. Last night's audience sat in complete silence.

By Lowell (Rick) Prescott / August 3, 2013

Potential audience members should know that this show consists of a long series of crotch grabs, unsubtle sexual innuendo and bathroom humor. Some may find it funny, but I did not. If there is a narrative, I could not follow it.

And, given the graphic and unapologetic nature of the material, the presence of young children in the cast (despite the fact that they were fine performers) was somewhat disconcerting.

The performers did what they could, and should be given credit for just going with the material. And the music, while not bad, was in the wrong show.

It's difficult to recommend this show to anyone.

Pass on This One

By Kassie Church / August 3, 2013

There was basically no plot. The end was so rushed that you couldn't understand what the actors were saying. A couple of the singers were terrible. It was supposed to be funny, but isn't. All around a pretty terrible show.

awesome show

By jacques conrad / August 3, 2013
This user has reviewed 1 show

Musicals aren't really my thing, but my wife insisted this was the show to see after seeing a number at one of the showcases. I have to say that the show was hilarious and a great way to spend an hour. The characters are funny and quirky and the plot was full of interesting and entaining twists. Fringe goers, this is one that shouldn't be missed.

Fun Adult Humor

By Joseph Magno / August 8, 2013
This user has reviewed 1 show

I can't for the life of me understand all the comments about the show's inappropriate humor when the preview clearly states that it's for audiences aged 16+. This show shines with a wonderfully talented group of performers gifted with a great sense of comedic timing (Al Fiene is especially funny in his role as Clark). The script delivers the funny with gusto. All of the songs are catchy, but some are filled with soaring melodies that showcase the voices of some especially powerful vocalists. A must see.

Highly Inappropriate

By Darlene Dashwoods / August 7, 2013
This user has reviewed 2 shows

Whoa, this show is filled with sexual innuendoes and disgusting "humor". I was sitting in my chair with feelings of disgust and disturbance. NOT the feeling I was hoping to leave the theatre. It is HIGHLY inappropriate - be forewarned before you see this show.
The cast is full of talent. They hold much potential and I only wish the quality of the script did that talent justice. From a technical standpoint there was nothing special but the costumes were done well.

Lovin' the Hospital Drama!

By Terry Caswolt / August 5, 2013
This user has reviewed 2 shows

What a fun production! I went with my elderly mom who was tickled b/c of her adoration of Soap Opera drama! I am not sure she caught all the jokes, but she loved it and wanted to meet Dr. Cox afterwards. (We didn't find him sadly!) Many stand outs in this large cast... McNutt, Wolf, Tatone, Fiene, and a band of kids that kept up with the adults. I was worried about that part, but the show handled this well and anything edgy that occured, happened during their offstage time. Nice to see something different and goofy that kept a fine tuned pacing all through the hour. Clever music/lyrics and just a whole bunch of Flakey Fun! Farah, you have some competition for the role of #1 Dr. Cox fan. My mom! I was all about Dan, Dan the custodian man!

Not recommended

By Carrie Nelson / August 5, 2013

I give the actors credit for giving it their all, but this show was disjointed, confusing, and frequently irritating. The in-your-face sexual content, which can be funny, wasn't. And worse--It was made creepily uncomfortable by the presence of young children in the cast. Seriously inappropriate. What were they thinking?

Traffic Cop Not Involved

By Richard Shields / August 3, 2013
This user has reviewed 20 shows

This show had a cast of over 25 by my count and was at times like a three ring circus on stage. A traffic cop was not a role in this show, but would have benefited having one in some capacity in this fast paced, manic show.

There are beautiful voices in the cast and the show has a large number of cute kids which tug at the heart. There are also several adult cast members that are enjoyable eye candy. The downside is that the stage is always so crowded key singers are buried in a manner that distracts from their performances. Some performers are also not audible ( I sat in fourth row) and due to this factor you miss part of the show.

The show fails to focus on the many performers in their cast with strong voices, which is sad.

Oh, Dear

By Peter Johnson / August 3, 2013
This user has reviewed 2 shows

Well, the very large (for the Fringe, anyway) cast certainly embraced their material and gave it their all. Good for them. I just wish they'd been given better material. A great deal of talent was misused in a series of unfocused, mostly incoherent story lines with characters that I just couldn't make myself care about. I get that it was supposed to be just wacky and nothing else, but there's a good way to do that and a not-so-good. Sadly, this was the latter, with even a couple of wince-inducing moments. Great singers, though, and the energy was very good, but it seemed like they were rushing the ending to make sure they were done in an hour. The kids in the cast were very strong and fun to watch. Overall, a couple of chuckles-no more.

Awesomely Gross

By Jeffrey Jones / August 3, 2013
This user has reviewed 1 show

High paced, comedic fun! Once the horse left the gate, it was a mad gallop around the track only pausing to shock us with quick punches and offensive bits. And this is a good thing. I am a guy and musicals are here and there for me, but the wife wanted to go so we went. And here I am to say she made a good pick. Shout outs to the head surgeon for his pipes and his hilarious "When You're Sexy" song, the freaking talented Amy Wolf who played her role to the fullest (who knew the ICU could be funny?) and Matt Tatone, my favorite guy role for being so awesomely gross. I think I am going back to school so I can be a rhyming OB too. A laugh out loud, solid hour of great music, grab em by the balls comedy and a stellar cast to pull it off.

Flakse Is Just What It Sounds Like

By Laura Mason / August 2, 2013
This user has reviewed 11 shows

Making a musical about flakey people sounds entertaining, but you can only pull that off if the show itself isn't flakey. There were way too many plot threads...and all of the characters were pretty weird (without being endearing at the same time).
There were definitely people in the audience who ate it up and loved the show, but I just thought it was pretty cliche in almost every way.

Fun Flakes

By Mary Parker / August 7, 2013
This user has reviewed 1 show

Flakes was a non-stop adventure from the Emergency Room. It was like Grey's Anatomy, but funny...all the time. Flakes' own "Dr. Dreamy" (Dr. Cox), Dr. Zeus and Farah the hypochondriac elevated the show with their memorable performances, especially their singing.

It's certainly not high-brow entertainment...but let down your guard and laugh a bit and you'll have a good evening.

Sassy Soapy Drama!

By Gia Clarkson / August 5, 2013
This user has reviewed 1 show

I am a soap opera fan and I am also a FLAKES fan! Thank you for the naughty comedy and for switching up the stage to include a unique and sassy musical! Great talent, flawless execution and a good time for me and the ladies! In a world of 50 shades of grey, this little animal is a tame kitten. Can't see what everyone is getting so worked up about! I am a parent and glad I didn't bring the children, but why would I have? I read the description before attending! The kids in the show are obviously the only "together" characters and end up being in charge. The world is that of FLAKES, and malpractice and drama and affairs, babynappings and amnesia, boners and boobs! If those things make you uncomfortable, then keep walking!

NO PRUDES ALLOWED!!!

By Marvin Grave / August 5, 2013
This user has reviewed 1 show

From reading previous reviews, I went in expecting some wild sex romp show (I was excited about that)... and instead found a light, farcical comedy with great music and an outstanding cast! I will say that there is some bold content, but it's lighter than cable television. There is a rating on it, so I am not sure what other reviewers were surprised about? I thought the plot lines were amusing, and the multiples of them keep things clicking along at a ready pace throughout. Farah's ICU issues, Dr. Cox's skirt chasing, Dr. Zuess's weird ideas and persistent failures with the ladies, cafeteria madness, what a wild hospital adventure! LOVED the hot tub scene! It was creative, easy to swallow and all I can say is: NO PRUDES ALLOWED!!!

Sometimes you need a farce

By Chris Anderson / August 4, 2013

This show is cliched farcical. It is very light and sophomoric in the comedy, which is fine for this show. There was entirely too many people in the cast, there was a lot to keep track of with all the plot lines and to have numerous random people on stage makes it lose any magic. The high point is the scantily clad 'speedo' guy, he alone is worth the price of admission.

I thoroughly enjoyed it!!!!

By Joseph Vang / August 3, 2013

I found this to be quite amusing! Loved the cast, the characters, tunes were awesome and different, easy to follow story line, it was amazing! I felt bad the audience was holding back their laughter, but it was hilarious! It was cheesy, quirky, and it was just very fun! Its definitely something you either love or you hate, and I loved it! The talent in the show was phenomenal even though there were some unsung heroes/heroines . I say go see this show!

This show made me laugh while being shocked by the realness beneath the quirky, funny, eclectic characters. It also made me miss my soaps! You simply must go and experience this grand hospital extravaganza.

Flakes started fast and never let up. With a great cast of characters, this show is packed with physical comedy, on-liners, and great singing. This show was hilarious, not taking itself too seriously, and just plain fun. I recommend this show to anyone who wants to laugh out loud.

A Very Large Cast

By Bill Fricke / August 2, 2013

I liked the show, but at times it seemed there were too many people on stage that took away focus from the "solo"songs. Sometimes there seemed to be too much "busy work" in the background that was distracting. The storyline was a little hard to understand, and the wrap up at the end was a little rushed. Otherwise, the show is pleasant and enjoyable. The singing is great, some good songs, and some strong and entertaining characters. It just needs a little less "clutter" in my opinion.

"Funny and quirky... shouldn't be missed!"

"Packed with physical comedy, one liners and great singers!"

"You simply must go and experience this grand hospital extravaganza!"

"Unsubtle sexual innuendo and bathroom humor..."


WHAT'S THIS WHOLE FLAKES THING ALL ABOUT?

This is a story of a quacky, crazy hospital not too far away from where you live.  Head surgeon, Dr. Cox, is wild about Nurse Tiffany, and although she is able to resist his delicious fruit, he keeps thinking she may be the one for him. He sexily goes about his days sampling the bounty around him, and even gets a go at Nurse Bianca in the hot tub at the staff party.  That Dr. Cox is a busy man with his quick wit and erogenous ways, even swooning Rose, the flower delivery girl with his magic airs... so much in fact that she ends up on the operating table with no need for surgery at all. 

Dr. Zuess is another one you'll see around the joint, dazzling everyone one with his rhythmic linguistics, and ability to perform most tasks fairly well.  He appears to be pretty darn good at his job and will stop at nothing to make that facade continue.  He has his interests set on Nurse Tiffany until that incredible day the glamorous Star births like an animal in the lobby, making the innards of his soul tingle.  Now he just has to get rid of that diva husband of hers, Chance, who is living the perfect life with her. Their money, charm and great singing voices make them the envy of many.

Without giving away too much, let's just say that Dr. Zuess loves Star who is married to Chance who has secretly fallen for Dr. Cox who is hot for Nurse Tiffany. Star's divorced dramatic mother, Nancy, on again off again sees Clark, the nutty lab technician who is dutifully trying to fend off the advances of Nurse Nelly from the psych ward. Apple runs the lobby, Rose delivers the flowers, Zuess delivers the babies. Farah loves the ICU, Nelly loves Clark, Clark loves Nancy, and Nancy loves money.  Apple doesn't really love any of them, but she sure does love the Krispy Bars fresh from the greatest Cafeteria Ladies in the world, Julie and Anne who battle to win the Golden Tongs.  Yeah.  All that PLUS cheesy songs, funny dances and a great big healthy serving of sexual innuendos tangle together to create this beast in a nutshell.  So grab your patient gown and come on over for a taste of FLAKES: THE MUSICAL!!!   Oh, and if you decide to bring the kids... you're an open minded parent.  Enough said.

Thanks to the cast, and thank you to Top Hat.
