Cliched, Funny, Entertaining, Hilarious, Quirky

See it if If you like high school musical mixed with an alien invasion or "the faculty".

Don't see it if Minimal set designs, so so singing, and skimping on costumes.

Ambitious, Fluffy, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if you want light entertainment done with much enthusiasm

Don't see it if you want a well thought out story that will move you. A bunch of cheap laughs that sometime work.

“‘Aliens Coming’ weaves some light satire into these narrative threads…Its primary aim, though, is to be entertaining and funny, and it unquestionably succeeds. The production is well-paced and the songs, accompanied by live piano onstage, well-crafted. The cast puts forth terrific performances…‘Aliens Coming’ feels fresh, is a bit queer in places, and even, unexpectedly, turns out to have actual stakes. Fans of tuneful, genially raunchy silliness will find plenty to like here.”

"'Aliens Coming' is charming and clearly a labor of love. It is delivered with a tremendous amount of mirth by a young and enthusiastic cast...However, there is some unevenness that detracts a bit from the bubbly zaniness...There are some plot holes and logistical loopholes in terms of world building...The largest hurdle to overcome in experiencing this play is the sound balance...A few body mics on major characters would make a world of difference.”
