Clever, Great acting, Great singing, Hilarious, Quirky

See it if you have a weird sense of humor, enjoy a cast with a ton of energy-most of whom kick butt, and sci-fi, low-budget, camp musicals.

Don't see it if you don't know how to laugh, you dislike being next to the stage/actors (they are in your face), or have an aversion to tiny instruments.

“The first half of the musical was fun, and there are extremely catchy songs throughout that I'm still singing in my head the next day. However, despite all of the positive elements, the show is still bogged down with too many fantastical characters and unfinished plot points. The second half can do for some serious editing...A fun, campy night out, for people of all ages. It is the type of show that doesn't take itself too seriously, so I recommend you do the same."

“It’s a loud, semi-incomprehensible and sporadically engaging 100-minutes that’s performed with youthful spirit...Seamon’s book is a well-constructed compendium of sci-fi clichés that’s mostly sung through with his gritty and witty authentic rock score...Director Jessica Francis Fichter has the lively cast in vigorous motion...Haynes’ stylish choreography has an accomplished musical theater pizzazz.”

“There were technical issues...which underscored the unpolished fringey quality of the overall presentation...While there is no question that the cast of emerging artists has talent and is fully committed to the material they’ve been given, the second half of the show becomes increasingly tedious, far-fetched, over-the-top goofy, and inordinately confusing...The production, which gets off to a rollicking start and has more than a few funny moments, is in need of much greater focus and editing.”

"The show draws liberally from the outer limits of sci-fi and fantasy while grounding the action in suburban New Jersey and the streets of New York with charming and hilarious results...As the young lovers are reunited through their quest to save the world, the show promotes a message of tolerance and kindness. The new world they will create will only be open to people with 'good hearts,' a message that the young cast embody well in this good-hearted show."

“The story can be a little choppy at times and a few jokes don’t land...The show itself is actually quite funny and emotionally grounded with enjoyable music...What truly saves the show from being simply silly is the commitment of the actors and their genuine talent...The production value is low, but this benefits the quirky nature of the show...’The Eleventh Hour’ mashes up 50s exploitation science fiction film and rock musicals in a surprisingly delightful journey."
