Hilarious, Edgy, Refreshing, Clever, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy an evening of total silliness! Plot is ridiculous, costumes absurd and choreographer did a marvelous job in an awkward space. FUN!

Don't see it if you cannot stand for 10 minutes or longer. There is some seating but the performers will tell you to move for some of the scenes.

Theatre is Easy
October 11th, 2016

"Amanda Nicholas and the Wongette ensemble permeate so much energy and fun into the space you can’t help but join in. The story itself is corny and predictable at best, but if this is meant to pay homage to those early sci-fi films then Budick, Maches, and Ogrin have nailed it. Their music and lyrics provide the perfect mash-up of kitsch meets catchy '60s tunes...What makes 'Planet Wongo' truly unique, however, is David Rigano’s direction to make the experience naturally immersive."

Front Row Center
October 11th, 2016

"An elongated 'SNL' sketch...If you don’t drink, aren’t into 'Mystery Science Theater 3000,' and the thought of being part of the show gives you hives, skip this one...The problem here is that a parody or spoof is supposed to skewer and turn upside down familiar tropes...The topic is ripe for it and it could have added a modern sensibility, a lot of laughs, and a thoughtful twist to an otherwise meatless show...You find yourself, even sometimes despite your better judgement, having a good time."

New York Theatre Review
October 14th, 2016

"This delightful romp wields zany charm and a healthy dose of good old-fashioned escapism...'Wongo’s' biggest asset is its wonderful ensemble cast...All of the women are great comediennes...Rigano’s directing is wise, especially through encouraging his Wongettes to operate as a unit. The result is goofy in the best of ways...This production is sincere, light, and best of all, good spirited."

Theater In The Now
December 11th, 2016

"'Wild Women of Planet Wongo' lives up to the fun title indeed!...If you’re super sensitive to the whole feminism movement, it might not be the show for you. But the music sure is catchy. All of the actors did a fantastic job with the songs and choreography, especially in such a small space...There is no serious plot or heavy demeanor here. Go, let your hair down, dance with a stranger, drink an unknown concoction, and enjoy the movement that is immersive theater."

When Nerds Attack
January 13th, 2017

"It’s a hard sell for anyone who is not a fan of the genre like myself, but by the end of the night, I was all too happy to join in the Wongo Wuau with the whole crew…As someone who is very picky with interactive theater and musicals, I was surprised by how much fun I had. It’s a real testament to old-school sci-fi storytelling...The music is so catchy I guarantee by the end you’ll be doing the Wongo Wuau just like the rest of us…Across the board, everyone’s vocals were top-notch.”

"The play has a ton of energy with lots of catchy tunes and amusing dancing. (Wongette Jenna Marcello especially had me in stitches). There are also opportunities for audience participation if you’re so inclined. Bring a Bumble date, and see how weird they’re willing to get. If they’re up for this, they’re probably a keeper."

With an Accent
February 28th, 2017

“The laughs are broad in this ‘Mystery Science Theatre’ meets ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ original musical, growing from titters in the beginning to belly laughs by the end…The energy of the performers, playing off the audience, means a different show every night…The creative journey of 'Wild Women of Planet Wongo' adds to its uniqueness – as the audience helps to inform what comes next for this clever piece of theatre.”

Starry Mag
April 2nd, 2017

“A fun, whimsical, funny and interactive show…The overall show is a bit predicable and corny in itself, but that is not to say that it doesn’t hold your attention…If you are looking for fancy or engaging, this is not for you. This is for those who enjoy having a few drinks while enjoying a more relaxed, off-the-wall and wild experience...The zingers were playful and delightful. Bring a friend and enjoy a night of unexpected thrills.”
