Capsule reviews of GET USED TO IT! from previous productions
“A joyous statement for all generations of gay culture. GET USED TO IT! tackles sex, love and relationships, politics, religion and AIDS in a funny, serious and always thought-provoking manner.” - Terry, Helbing, The NEW YORK NATIVE
“The romantic songs are every bit as uplifting as the satirical songs are bitingly funny.” — Gary L. Day, PHILADELPHIA GAY NEWS
“A prolific and highly talented songwriter, it’s Weinberg at his best, hashing out issues via wonderful lyrics and melodies. From the tyranny of religious intolerance to outing, guaranteed to irk the fundies.” - Tommi Avicolli Mecca, FIRST HAND
“Weinberg tempers the camp and stays focused on substance. GET USED TO IT is a humorous look at serious gay issues.” —Bob Harrington, THE NEW YORK POST
“Joyous, romantic, uplifting and satirical, Weinberg’s GET USED TO IT! is an incisive, humorous look at the gay issues of our time. A gift from one of the most talented members of the gay community. From the wacky "No Opening Number" to the heart-warming "I'll Call You Lover" through the defiant "Breaking the Penal Code with You," this is superb musical theater. Rich in nuance, dramatic timing and effect, the piece is compassionate, romantic, tender and politically savvy. – Will Grega, ALLMUSIC REVIEW
“Una simpatico commedia musicale dedicate agli omosessuali con senso dell’umorismo. Applausi.” – Mario Fratti, OGGI
“Weinberg covers a wide range of subjects using anger, humor and love to create a roller-coaster of a revue.” - Wayne Hoffman, THE WASHINGTON BLADE

GET USED TO IT! Revived by Rainbow Theatre Project
Washington DC 2016 production a success
Music & lyrics by Tom Wilson Weinberg, Directed by H. Lee Gable
We are born with the promise of freedom, equality and love. Tom Wilson Weinberg covers the struggles our community faces in our search for those universal desires. In the course of eighteen songs, he gives us the romantic (Who Did Langston Love?), the intense (Bat Boy), the whimsical (Three-Letter Word), the outrageous (Flaunting It!), and the political (Means to an End). This musical revue was very timely for the early nineties and has become even more relevant for today as we face many of the same obstacles.
