Fluffy, Disappointing, Confusing, Cliched, Banal

See it if If you like a wierd type of play that does not mske much sense of anything. If you like different types of shows that delve into the absurd.

Don't see it if If you want a big production or a traditional production. Space suits and other wacky things in this one.

Intermittently funny, Tired writing, Hardworking cast, Weird

See it if you are willing overlook a lot of flaws to get your dose of weird & wacky.

Don't see it if you were hoping that something this out-there would also mean it was fresh. Read more

June 3rd, 2019

"As for the show's humor, there were moments when Sheen should have played her emotions straight instead of going for laughs (a.k.a. the #1 rule of comedy acting) -- but there's time for her to grow into that. Additionally, the comedic concepts in 'God of Marz' could use more development. The show is on the cusp of being a funny, zany absurdist romp, but it doesn't have enough internal logic in its script to justify its more inventive flourishes. With tweaks, that could definitely happen."

"A throwback to the wacky, farcical satires familiar to fans of the long-gone Theatre of the Ridiculous, albeit without a whiff of its wit or comically gifted clowns...A farrago of far too many farcical misfires…At moments you can see how a clever director might have made some of this…work. Unfortunately, whatever subversive humor is trying to break out gets no help from Girón's clumsy timing, uninspired staging, and creative imagination. God knows what Ludlam would have made of 'God of Marz.'"

"At a recent performance there were indeed a handful of walkouts during the 75-minute show, but one might suspect that it was the result of boredom and not provocation...The performers have to concentrate their efforts on mining laughs from the leaden material, and only occasionally do they succeed...Not enough, however, to make 'God of Marz' incendiary, titillating, or aesthetically thrilling. Worst of all, it is as funny as an end-of-show 'Saturday Night Live' sketch."
