Quirky, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Great singing

See it if you are familiar with the first season of the Netflix show and would enjoy the parody. Hard working cast with great timing.

Don't see it if if you don’t appreciate Theater in the round where action is away from you and lighting is on you instead of actors.

Don't see it if you've never seen Stranger Things, don't appreciate over the top satire, don't like what appears like makeshift staging, who's Barb?

Quirky, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if U like a light musical, set in Indiana in the 80s, filled with tons of energy & talent, healthy laughs+amazing costumes & puppets!

Don't see it if U don't like Stranger Things on TV or theater in the round. Cute x young couples date night, but take it x what it is: FUNNY & FUN.

"Smartly, 'Stranger Sings!' handpicks only a few key moments from the latter seasons to add, making the show feel up-to-date without being overwhelming."

"You don’t have to be an ardent follower of the Netflix to be thoroughly entertained by Jonathan Hogue’s sprightly, savvy book, music and lyrics, all of which reveal a budding theater-maker."

"If you’ve never seen 'Stranger Things,' prepare to be hopelessly lost when it comes to the entangled plotlines, but stick around for the handful of dynamic performances, clever choreography and amusing shoutouts to film musicals."

"Maybe it’s unfair to rag on the show having been written several years ago. But it would help if Stranger Sings was more diverting purely as a musical. The songs are serviceably bouncy, but immediately forgettable."

This energetically performed and well-presented musical spoof of the Netflix Sci-Fi series will delight fans and its zaniness should entertain non-viewers.

The New York Times

For a previous production

"Theater that recreates television in all its reassuring comfort-food predictability, with familiar characters in familiar settings acting out familiar story lines. There’s something to be said for a live show that manages to recreate the laid-back atmosphere of your living room."

For a previous production

"With a bit of work, Stranger Sings! could truly live up to its full potential as a parody of the beloved Netflix show. The cast and crew clearly have a love for the original and a passion for putting on a great performance, but there could be improvements for audiences visiting the Upside Down."
