The 4242 Intergalympics are finally here, and it’s up to the crew of the S.S. Albacore to prove that Earth isn’t the shabby dirt turd the Martians think it is. Ready, set, space! 'Turbulence' won Best Musical and Best World Premiere in the 2017 Hollywood International Fringe Festival.
“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.” Full Review
"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." Full Review
