Critic Reviews for Hipsters
What is... wondrous, the chief repression that we see-and hear-is Stalinist hatred of jazz and American hip clothes.
It's taken the Russian musical "Hipsters" four years to reach America. That's all right. It may take audiences four years to recover.

Audience Reviews for Hipsters
Hairspray in the USSR; i.e., fun and bright, but with stakes. Visual candy, catchy tunes, Lovers in a Dangerous Time plot, and only a touch heavy-handed in its political statement. Wobbles toward the end, but how many musicals don't? Eye-opening work... I kind of loved it.
|Mels:||But it's not about being better or worse, just different.|
|Mels:||I'm not persistant. I'm goal-oriented.|
|Katya:||Every hipster is a potential criminal. A saxophone is only one small step away from a switchblade.|
