Fluffy

See it if You want to see every work of this emerging artist, he has done powerful work before, and there are comely individual performances to see.

Don't see it if You are expecting to find something of essential value to the work as a whole. There is no there there.

Delightful, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if you like off-beat, visually stimulating and edgy performances.

Don't see it if you prefer more classical plot-driven theater.

“The dynamic cast are all highly physical performers in optimum shape who sensationally sing, dance and act with tremendous flair...There’s little actual plot to follow or to comprehend but it is a very entertaining sensory event...One of those exhilarating performance experiences that can best be enjoyed for its surface qualities rather than attempting to attach narrative significance or depth to it.”

“Part play, part performative installation art, and entirely captivating. The ensemble cast are utterly brilliant, as individuals and as a cohesive unit...This celebratory energy in both design and performance can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. The piece starts at a high energy level and never waivers, which though a testament to the skill and dedication of the cast, sometimes muddles the importance assigned to individual moments...There is no way to leave the theatre feeling low.”

Theater In The Now
July 30th, 2016

"Mostah Black definitely put a lot of passion and detail into his work. What the entire show lacked was focus and an overall point. It was confusing from beginning to end...For every thought that was put into this piece, there was another thought that said we should be as crazy as possible, completely throwing out any validity the story ever had...Like a Jackson Pollock painting: complex in its insanity, volatile in personality and unique in its ridiculousness."
