Edgy, Dizzying, Confusing, Clever, Absorbing

See it if If you like puppetry, comedy to resonate for serious subjects. Good direction and excellent puppetry.

Don't see it if If you need a show that brings finality. A non confusing, laid out complete written play.

Enchanting, Delightful, Clever, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if You like science fiction and shows that are a bit quirky, out of the box presentation wise. This is beautiful extraordinary storytelling.

Don't see it if You can’t be a little patient to let the full premise/experience of this show bloom. It takes a minute to grasp what they’re saying/doing.

Intense, Great puppetry, Dark, dark, dark

See it if you are interested apocalyptic plays steeped in " progressivism".

Don't see it if the fact that progressivism can never escape from its fundamentalist, Christian roots makes a play difficult to watch Read more

Post-apocalyptic ya adventure via puppets

See it if Absurdist radical in a mask narrates a bleak apocalyptic future veiled in a "kids" puppet show. Fun puppetry. Plot's clear as jelly :P

Don't see it if Some creepy puppets (Dark Crystal), killing, PG-13/Rish, some profanity, breaking 4th wall, dystopian future, love romance aren't your thing Read more

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.”
