Must see, Hilarious, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if you're a trekker or you know the Khan story. 1 liners, references to Star Wars, Rent, Cabaret etc. abound. You even laugh at the audience

Don't see it if you hate Star Trek or abhor 1 liners, puns & gags. Music is funny but not what the show is about.

Great writing, Hilarious, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if Premise is SO clever (& timely). If you love any Trek, you'll love it. Brent Black is a brilliant writer. Data and Kirk actors are brilliant

Don't see it if if you don't like to be charmed.

Entertaining, Quirky, Great writing, Funny, Clever

See it if you are a fan of musicals and/or Star Trek. It can honestly be enjoyed by either. I hadn't seen the film but still really liked the show.

Don't see it if parody musicals aren't your thing.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever

See it if you're familiar with Star Trek you'll find amusing. The guy who does Data does a pretty spot on impression as does the actor who plays Kirk

Don't see it if you're not a fan of the Star Trek series and don't like campy revue musicals

See it if you are a Trek fan, for sure. See it if you are a musical theatre fan, lots of fun bits to enjoy. If you enjoy all things nerdy, see this!

"Khan!!! The Musical, A Parody Trek-tacular," book, music and lyrics written by Brent Black, co-conceived with additional material by Alina Morgan, and directed by John Lampe, boldly goes where others have tread but does it with respect and an understanding of the "Star Trek" canon that is missing in other plays using Star Trek stories. It is based on a story from the original series that was used as the plot for what is considered to be the best "Star Trek" movie, "The Wrath of Khan." It then takes a character from a later "Star Trek" series and uses him as the guide for a musical interpretation of the movie. The result is, for this critic, a well-acted, well-sung two hours and 15 minutes of solid entertainment.

“...’Khan!!! The Musical!’ crazily, but cleverly, goes where no multi-racial, multi-talented, multi-species cast has gone before...Their two and a quarter hour mission: entertain an audience composed of musical theater fans who are also Trekkers. Employing stealth tap dancing, fine voices, and with phasers set firmly to silly, the mission succeeds.”

The show is an affectionate and well executed spoof of the 1982 classic movie, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, with shades of the television series, Star Trek: The Next Generation. A game and lively cast portray the iconic characters. Co-conceived by Brent Black and Alina Morgan who contributed additional material, Mr. Black’s faithful book and zesty score contains wicked homages to Chicago and The Rocky Horror Show. It’s a grand entertainment for Trekkies.
