"It’s great, entertaining performance art. Go elsewhere for Shakespeare or Les Mis."

Just returned from show with my wife and two kids (12/17) who can be rather tough critics (the type that never really come out and say they liked something). Anyway, got to admit that I was a bit apprehensive reading the reviews that this show might disappoint. No chance. It’s fun, funny, interactive and even irreverent performance art combined with great percussion. It’s one part mime, one part rock concert and one part (modern) art. Sit back and enjoy the ride and don’t over analyze. Nearly the whole theater was laughing, clapping and whooping it up during the performance, including my wife and both kids. We were in upper deck but theater is very small and seats were fine and artists made sure to include us in the audience participation parts. Not a bad seat in the house.

Took my 10 and 13 year fun! Great musicians, lots of laughs, bright colors and surprises. We loved it! I do wish people would respect the recommendation to not bring children under 5. After saving for these tickets I shouldn’t have to hear your whining crying baby.... 😡. I would definitely see this again.
