About the show

An irreverent new musical comedy featuring an original score, swooning fangirls, an Antichrist, world peace, a social media star, the spirit of Elvis...and, of course, a hero! More…

When Drac Frenzie, a burnt-out, world-famous heavy metal icon decides to save himself from self-destruction by impersonating Elvis, a miracle occurs—which leads to him not only saving himself, but also the world. This show satirizes everything from self-identity to society to organized religion. 'Attack of the Elvis Impersonators' will make you howl as it converts you to Hound Dog: the new religion of peace.

Cliched, Disappointing, Quirky, Raunchy, Good singing

See it if Missed opportunity for a truly zany satire Well sung but sloppily acted by principles Stephenson's staging tries vainly to resuscitate plot

Don't see it if Some clever songs but lame book flattens everything in its path. Just like Elvis this inane show "has left the building"

Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Quirky, Campy

See it if you're into camp and B movies, or you believe that Elvis lives among us.

Don't see it if you prefer something serious, or you hate looking over people's heads (the theatre has no incline--terrible design).

Great acting, Great singing, Edgy, Quirky

See it if You enjoy high energy rock musicals that are campy and over the top. Excellent acting with many Broadway actors.

Don't see it if You're not willing to suspend disbelief at the scifi plot. This was way better than what the critics said!

Dated, Great singing, Amateurish, Tacky

See it if You like campy,tacky musicals about Elvis, no matter if the plot makes no sense. Seems like an amateur production with great singers.

Don't see it if You have anything better to do or do not like rock and roll in any form.

Also I tried to find a redeeming quality in this show, but had to leave at ... Read more Read less

Don't see it if You don't like silly, funny performances. You don't want to laugh. You are too serious and don't know how to lighten up.

Over-the-top, Great singing, Campy, Silly fun, Ambitious

See it if you're 100% CLEAR this isn't classic theatre. Show is pure camp & silly fun. The singing is good-to-excellent, especially Wiley & Sciotto.

Don't see it if before seeing ANYTHING, you need to read "professional" critics' thoughts & personal edicts (reviews on the left). See what YOU want to see.

Also The entire ensemble - young and not so young - work their asses off in... Read more Read less

Great singing, Slow, Indulgent, Quirky

See it if you love Elvis impersonators. The lead is excellent and supported by a talented ensemble. The songs often approached witty and catchy.

Don't see it if It's rather silly and too long.

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Clever, Great staging

See it if You like camp, over the top, song , chaos, Elvis and just having a good old time. Silly piece but oh so much fun. Better than I expected

Don't see it if You don't like Elvis, camp, a musical that's over the top & the ridiculous. This is not for you then., or if Anti Christ theme bothers you.

See it if You are very easily entertained

57
Entertaining, Stupid score, Good singing, Sick phantasy

See it if you are very easily enterntained with silly jokes. The songs are ok and the 2 leads give their best. But it's not enough to save the show.

Don't see it if you need something with thought and essence. This show offers a very silly plot to deliver simple entertainemnt, nothing more.

Confusing, Great singing, Excruciating, Insipid, Pointless

See it if you love energetic performers with terrific voices, enjoy good tunes, and don't mind an illogical, and frankly, insipid story.

Don't see it if you want something of substance, relevance, or a story that even makes sense.

Entertaining, Great singing, Quirky, Hilarious, Ridiculous

See it if You have a sense of humor for silly, zany, absurd show that makes fun of itself. I laughed the whole time. Great voices. Ensemble stole show

Don't see it if Show is really stupid & it knows it. If you can't embrace that then don't see this show. Book makes no sense. Music pays homage to Elvis.

Also If you go in with any ounce of seriousness you will not enjoy this sho... Read more Read less

Don't see it if you prefer serious theatre.

Misnamed, Good staging, Energetic

See it if Bigger production and very large cast for a small theater: a tryout for a larger venue? Satan was the highlight.

Don't see it if Thin, aimless story, without substance. More Elvis needed to deliver on the promise of the title.

"The show is as baffling as it sounds, but worse, it’s bland and unfunny...The 20-odd musical numbers, though derivative, are catchy and deserve a better book than the one that Lazarus has crafted around them. The performers are blessed with powerful pipes, and they bite into the inanity with who...

"The plot is incoherent, the songs are unamusing, and despite the best efforts of the director, Don Stephenson, the action lurches from one mystifying development to the next. The show's meager list of strengths includes Eric Sciotto, as Drac, who attacks his terrible material with a certain verv...

"Not as funny as it’s intended due to its overloaded book and shaky tone...Lazarus’ score is an entertaining blend of rock, pop and show tunes...His good-natured book is a shambles. The serious, campy and satirical elements don’t connect. The plot is crammed and wayward...It’s all strained, labor...

"Embrace the outrageous and watch Elvismania unravel...Free-wheeling and wacky with a nugget of positivism...The score overall is funny and energetic, performed by talented singers, dancers, actors...Sciotto is unbeatable playing bilateral Drac...The plot is choppy with drop-in, drop-out characte...
