Entertaining, Great acting, Clever, Fun, Hilarious

See it if you want to see a funny, wacky, super-well-acted and satisfying show.

Don't see it if you're looking for serious drama. This is a laugh out loud comedy with a satisfying plot but not much to say.

Clever, Hilarious, Quirky, Original

See it if you're looking for an original play with music that addresses dark subject matter in a lighter way. The cast is fantastic.

Don't see it if you're looking for a more serious show or don't enjoy goofy, over-the-top humor.

July 3rd, 2016

"While the show has its expected share of scatological jokes and schoolboy humor, there’s none of the wink-wink self-consciousness common to downtown campfests or Zucker brothers movies. Silverman and her cast find an amiable gentleness that matches Lipton’s low-key absurdism, which makes everything all the funnier. 'Tumacho' is the platonic theatrical version of the artfully anarchic, shrewdly mindless comedies we wait for every summer."

"The whole project is like a strange little wind-up toy, and while it doesn't always function, you get enormous pleasure from watching people try to make it go...It's unadulterated silliness: a string of gleefully juvenile gags about an Old West frontier town overrun by a bloodsucking ghoul...Did someone say narrative holes? 'Tumacho's' got narrative canyons. But this final production demonstrates what sheer talent and good feeling can do."

“'Tumacho' embraces its cockamamie premise while managing to squeeze in some smart subtext about fighting bullies and forgoing personal comfort to effect change (with slight nods to our current gun control debate). But the 'message' feels secondary to the fun: top-notch actors (notably, the sidesplitting Conlee and Shamos), clever props, and tender musical numbers all working together to deliver bracing emotion amid the absurdity.”
