About the show

This new meta-theatrical musical-comedy epic celebrates the magic, the fandom, and the legacy of all things "Star Wars." More…

From the show:

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away…a Staten Island Blockbuster Video to be exact…

Two Star Wars fanatics, Scott and Taylor, write the most epic musical tribute to the force EVER! On their endless quest to perform it at Comic Con - a restraining order, that we won't mention, stands in their way - they have opted to perform it on the glamorous off-broadway stages instead. However, dark forces are looming over their production, and her name is Emily.

"Do Scott and Taylor prevail? Does the show make it to Comic Con? The answers are less important than the good time you'll have getting there...May the FUN be with you!" -Theasy.com

See it if you're a Star Wars fan or an actor. There are lots of inside jokes that will surely give you a chuckle.

Don't see it if you prefer Broadway theatre. This is clearly for a niche audience in a smaller venue.

See it if you are a Star Wars fan that enjoys poking fun! The clever inside jokes are a treat, the singing is off the charts, and the costume changes.

Don't see it if You want serious, well-honed theater. At this show the audience calls out (almost too often) to the allusions to LBGTQ or liberal politics.

See it if You're a fan of the films or not - I'm not a fangirl, but I had a blast and loved the clever references. The cast is hilarious and talented.

Don't see it if You're looking for a Star Wars parody - this says it all in its title - its a musical ABOUT Star Wars not a Star Wars musical.

See it if You’re a huge Star Wars fan like myself. I’m not super into musicals, but this was awesome. The songs are catchy and the jokes are great!

Don't see it if If you’re not into Star Wars or over the top humor. If you don’t like things like Wet Hot American Summer then you won’t get its cleverness

Also Mainly I wanted to point out that it’s not a Star Wars Musical or some... Read more Read less

See it if You want a great night out with some fun songs and some fun Star Wars in jokes. Goes down well with a drink and a Star Wars T-shirt.

Don't see it if You are expecting big production values. It feels very "homemade"--For the fans and by the fans.

See it if You have any interest in Star Wars and want to laugh hysterically. The show was very well written. The cast keeps the audience engaged.

Don't see it if You don't have any interest in Star Wars or if you just want to watch a show. It's not large scale so don't look for big budget props.

Also The fact that this is a small scale production makes it more intimate.... Read more Read less

See it if You love harmonies, laughing, and Star Wars! My family loved it, teens as well.

Don't see it if You don’t like lower budget off Broadway. Really young kids probably won’t get many of the jokes.

See it if you like Star Wars, or even if you don't. It's easy to follow and looks at the saga through an outsider's eye.

Don't see it if You want something more "serious-minded". It is silly and over-the-top, but that is part of the charm.

Also It's not Star Wars: The Musical, it's a musical ABOUT Star Wars, so do... Read more Read less

Score: 85%. "Written by Elizabeth Ann Foster From the moment you turn into an alcove and enter St. Luke's theatre it is fun. Fellow theatre goers are dressed in Star Wars gear including the iconic Princess Leia hair style. It felt like you were at a private party. Last time I was at St. Luke's Th...

for a previous production "The set-up is admittedly rather silly, but in a format reminiscent of a 1970s variety show, the frame allows for some clever songs (by Billy Reece) and sketches. The best are those that merge Broadway musical kitsch with 'Star Wars' in-jokes...Not everything in the show works, and a whiff of ted...

And Billy Recce has ...
