What I liked

Fantastic Props. Crazy Story. Theatre Nerd References.

What I didn't like

I would liked to have seen some of the furniture + costumes tattered and dusty to match the tone of the post-apocalyptic world.

I am attributing my note due to opening night excitement, but I would liked to have seen some of the comedic pacing slow down just a little for a little extra punch.

My overall impression

A crowd-pleasing, high-concept satire drenched in current pop-culture references. Matthew Robinson tackles the postmodern comedy genre with familiar devices and tones while dodging the trite and expected. Robby Devillez earns a gold star for keeping the action flowing and the actors engaged and moving onstage.
