Cliched, Funny, Silly, Quirky, Youthful

See it if Campy, hammy, improv-style musical with lots of cliches. The actors were having fun and most of the audience was too.

Don't see it if You would like more quality and originality throughout. Funny moments were interspersed with banal stretches.

Clever, Hilarious, Campy, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy high camp. You like sci-fi stories. You want a well-edited comedy w/fun music & performers.

Don't see it if You don't like parodies and/ or sci-fi. You don't like theatre that comes from improv. You prefer serious sci-fi. Read more

"Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night. 'Turbulence!' rocks the Soho Playhouse more than Margo Channing could ever have imagined. The bumps are actually convulsions of laughter evoked by the hilarity onstage...Music is light and tuneful. Songs maintain the same mock seriousness that infuses the spoken parts of the show. Pritchard keeps it amazingly smooth...It’s all of a piece, with fine performances all around from the game cast."

“An energetic hour of silly sci-fi fun...Directed in a comically casual style reminiscent of an extended SNL TV sketch, the spirited creators/performers of Robot Teammate fully embrace their wacky future vision with full-out goofiness and gusto...While ‘Turbulence!’ does include some serious underlying messages, Robot Teammate presents them in the entertaining context of an amusing outer-space adventure, in a laugh-filled offering that’s a blast for the whole family.”
