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.

Fun, Lightweight, Young talented cast, Fringelike, Improv-ed musical

See it if sci-fi parody, now scripted improv musical, Fringe-esque-ishness, silly fun, low rent production values are in your wheelhouse

Don't see it if anything Fringe-like, pun-ishness, low rent production values, silver spanks, anything 2 nipped, could drive you over the edge

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if You're up for a refreshingly silly, wildly entertaining and solidly performed musical sci-fi spoof, a tonic for these troubled times.

Don't see it if You're looking for a serious musical or can't just sit back and be entertained by an endearing, instantly likable and talented cast.

Disappointing, Cliched, Fluffy, Overrated, Quirky

See it if you are a sci-fi fan, and have nothing better to do. It uses every cliche in the book to try and tell a story. Just doesn't always work.

Don't see it if you want a serious show. I enjoyed moments of it, but as a complete show I was bored, since it was very predictable. Read more

Entertaining, Hilarious, Amateurish, Quirky, Over the top

See it if you enjoy spoofs of space adventures ala Spaceball. Cast do best to please and they don't disappoint. Its a Fringe hence the amateurish set.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy silly fun. But if you can loosen up & be a kid for an hour or so, you'll not regret for the laughs it brings esp from Mambo!

Theater Pizzazz

"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.”
