CRITIC'S PICK! "It's not just that the story is set in a poetically rendered 2555, but that Waage and Warnock, who also directed, blithely ignored the memo about coddling young audiences: Their show, for viewers age 10 and up, does not shy from the violence and death intertwined with life"
“ ‘The Immortal Jellyfish Girl’ makes for ideal far-out experimental theater, with an otherworldly and fully transporting design scheme that evokes a classic Coney Island circus sideshow, ominous political overtones, wacky humor, and unapologetic strangeness – even if the plotting gets confusing.”
“This is perhaps the goriest, most violent show currently playing off-Broadway. It's really not a children's show...’The Immortal Jellyfish Girl’ is here to remind us that nothing is forever, and none of us will likely be around to witness what comes next.”
“ 'The Immortal Jellyfish Girl,' running 80 minutes, is an exceptionally theatrical piece of puppetry, and everyone involved in the production should be credited for this grand collaborative effort...It is a stunningly original theatrical work.”
