Hilarious, Resonant, Relevant, Great singing, Underrated

See it if you'd enjoy a fresh, funny musical gem performed with great pipes & great heart. The songs immediately move you, amuse you & stay with you.

Don't see it if you're offended by an LGBT love story. Actually, in that case you should definitely see it. Read more

Funny, Entertaining, Fluffy, Hilarious, Insipid

See it if You like camp and campiness. It's like a satire, trying to be serous. LGBT. Funny songs. Was better when I saw it years ago. This concert

Don't see it if Format, took away from the theatrics, but, overall enjoyable. Storyline needs to be tightened...sensitive about religion. . Would see again.

"The cast is seriously killer...Director Walker fiercely steers the piece’s main themes of LGBT identity and religion while tackling other important subjects like eating disorders and teen suicide...Although the premise of 'Camp Wanatachi' is quite apropos to our times, I would have liked to see the envelope pushed a little further. I look forward to seeing an incarnation of this piece in an actual theater as well, as the camp vibes didn’t particularly suit the swankiness of the venue to me."

“'Wanatachi' is fun to watch and has performances that will send chills down your spine...Although the vocals are often drowned out by a regrettable echo-like microphone effect, you get the idea that these are well-trained voices. Even though 'Wanatachi' is not a fully staged musical, the performers...fill the intimate setting with music and dance and do a fine job telling the story of a budding romance set to a catchy electronic-pop score. It will make you feel like a kid at summer camp.”
