Entertaining, Fun, Campy, Clever, Quirky

See it if You're a fan of teen slasher or horror films! Story is good and delivers laughs. It's a fun, campy night out.

Don't see it if If you aren’t a fan of slasher films which tend not to have the best acting/writing but work as a genre. This in in that vein & works!

Great staging, Slow, Cliched, Funny, Dated

See it if you like living comic books. The staging is very clever. Clearly a lot of work went into the production and the actors are doing there best

Don't see it if with big expectations. It is not as funny or as scary as I would have liked it to be. Still it had good moments.

Theatre is Easy
May 25th, 2016

"The audience is treated to suspense, fights, and intricate stage blood effects. But, 'Bonesetter' is, above all, sharply witty. While poking holes in the dichotomy of "ideal" female sexuality, Storckman pokes fun at horror film tropes, '80s pop culture, dating, and at the play itself...Performing in the round presents challenges...I was often able to see or hear when actors move behind the audience...That being said, there’s an astute brilliance to 'Bonesetter.'"

Theater In The Now
May 17th, 2016

"Littered with humor and cynicism, 'Bonesetter,' though not perfect, takes Middleton's tale and finds an enticing way to retell it. Storckman's text marries styles well but in the end, storytelling gets muffled, occasionally...Director Koivisto embraced the campy horror essence leaving the audience wanting more...'Bonesetter' is one of those shows that can be exceptional in the future in a more budget friendly production."
