Confusing, Excruciating, Quirky, Amateurish, Silly

See it if Tacky, homemade set and costumes; silly incomprehensible plot; two men playing multiple roles as a farce; didn't work for me.

Don't see it if You expect a professional quality show; you don't like broad farce.

Quirky, Fun, Good acting, Indulgent, Slow

See it if You enjoy watching comedic actors playing their hearts out. The actors made this show for me.

Don't see it if you're looking for a plot that makes sense, or has humor that comes naturally from it; a lot came from forced lines

Clever, Confusing, Slow

See it if you enjoy farcical, campy humor with horror and mystery elements.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy having two actors play eight characters or if you want your plays to be more polished.

"Tyler Nye and Dominic Sellers do a fine job portraying all the characters. They are both highly proficient and talented actors who never cease to be entertaining...If you are looking for a way out of your mundane, humdrum existence, a good first step would be seeing Charles Ludlam's campy comedy."
