From the show:
Award-winning Australian musical-comedy maverick Anya Anastasia brandishes her razor-sharp satirical wit, gleefully attacking and dismembering the perils of the modern world, bringing a fierce and provocative new breed of contemporary comedy cabaret to the stage.
See it if you like offbeat cabaret acts - this one has important messages about today’s concerns from an Australia vantage point with some humor.
Don't see it if you want a polished act-the music & voices are okay but nothing special. Basic lighting with lots of fast passing video clips behind actors.
See it if you want a very odd but amusing evening and like accordion music.
Don't see it if you expect a fully staged play with a traditional plot. This is very Fringe, slightly experimental seemingly partially improvised.
See it if Aussie ukulele activist cabaret gal hoots and hollers her way to saving the world while everyone is watching. And why would you not?
Don't see it if Enthusiasm and a smile can paint over limited talent. "You're special. You're important. You're a hero. But I'm the one wearing Spandex."
See it if You enjoy intentionally bad cabaret shows. You like character shows. You like shows w/social commentary.
Don't see it if You want a good bad show done well. You want a character that sustains interest from start to finish.You don't like audience participation.
See it if You want to see a cabaret about current politics, and you know something about Australia. Funny and quirky, it had its moments.
Don't see it if You want a well rounded show. It had a few to many ups and downs to be consistent. The multimedia was sometimes distracting.
See it if you enjoy two-person cabaret of original tunes and lyrics on activist environmental/immigration/human themes with attractive female lead
Don't see it if you insist on ethnic and racial casting diversity, avoid attractive, intelligent, Caucasian Aussie woman actor feigning blond dumbness
See it if You like political satire with singing then you might like this two person show.
Don't see it if You want to see mediocre singing and satire, skip this one.
See it if you like cabaret-type shows;enjoy quirky shows; tepid political humor.
Don't see it if you prefer a coherent plot to a series of unconnected vignettes; dislike multimedia in the middle of a show; dislike audience participation
See it if you like Australian fringe works, you've seen Ms. Anastasia before and "get" her, you need an excuse to go downtown, you like wild costuming

See it if you like basically a solo show with comic songs and are intrigued by discussion of slacktivism and comfortable caring in a today's world.
Don't see it if you mind a lack memorable songs, a lack of a clear resolution and take home, or mind overly contemporary and youth oriented themes.
See it if you like a sincere look at important social issues served in a very zany, humorous, and sincere way with music, video, and glitter as well.
Don't see it if you don't like duo acts that sometimes get too satirical for your delicate sensibilities! Anya delivers with passion, pathos, and panache!
See it if you're Australian & get all the references; you have patience; you wish to support indie theatre; you want a selfie with Anya in her costume
Don't see it if you get bored by half-cooked material; a multi-media assault of blurbs from Facebook/ Twitter is what you go to the theatre to ESCAPE from

Also You don’t have to be an Aussie or a millennial to enjoy this
See it if You're young and tethered to your smart phone. Anya will set you straight on how you're more like a dog on the leash of social networks.
