What I liked

Skillfully adapted from Senate transcripts, “Porn Rock” makes a mockery of government attempts to censor rock lyrics. Sometimes the politicians are unintentionally funny, sometimes they are hilariously absurd. The only sane voices in the room are from the music world, defending art and freedom of speech.

What I didn't like

Nothing to say here. It’s an entertaining show. Worth seeing.

My overall impression

A good, entertaining show that reminds us that the concept of freedom of speech is too large to fit inside little minds. This was a preview but the show ran smoothly, with good pacing and a cast comfortable with their roles in history. With very good guitar segues, scratchy and down-dirty—perfect thing to make Tipper Gore’s skin crawl.
