About the Show

This cycle of three plays is a live-action comedy mash up of Dragon Ball Z, graphic novels, space operas, the Final Fantasy series, and every after-school cartoon you watched in the mid-to-late '90s.

Theatre is Easy
February 23rd, 2015

"For anime fans or anyone who just enjoys general joy and laughter, 'Kapow-i GoGo' is a mystical dragon-granted wish come true... Who the hell does this show think it is, having fun with giant swords and dragons and fight choreography and only letting me watch from the sidelines? Eff this show for being a 100 miles-per-hour roller coaster of fun and leaving me only to talk about how awesome it is. It’s so good. Congratulations, 'Kapow-i GoGo' for being good. You jerk."

Theater In The Now
February 24th, 2015

For Part 1: "A colorful and whimsical world that is reminiscent of the anime, video games, and cartoons you grew up on... 'Kapow-i GoGo' is all fun and games but hidden deep inside is insight, wisdom, and a great message. And that marks the sign of a true champion. 'Kapow-i GoGo' has a long, bright future."

For Part 2: "The production team behind 'Kapow-i GoGo' continue to do a fabulous job bringing Cox’s world to life. The cardboard and duct tape props and costumes are still shining stars, many items returning to action. Keeping the vocabulary consistent from part 1 to part 2 allowed Cox’s departure from the lightness come naturally. With only one part remaining, the 'Kapow-I' brand remains strong giving the audiences a perfect escape from the mundane."

Theater In The Now

For Part 3: "No one likes when a good thing comes to an end. But all series have to find a way to wrap their journey up nicely. And 'Kapow-i GoGo,' Matt Cox’s epic series, is no different... Saying goodbye is never easy, but there’s a bright future for a life for 'Kapow-i GoGo.' Whether it be a new venue or a different medium, expect more."

"Perhaps the most impressive element of 'Kapow-i GoGo,' is how it manages to be both openly comical and internally consistent, invoking real drama while at the same time making us laugh. Though its frequent stage combat scenes awkwardly hover between realistic and comic styles, the rest of the performance handles that dichotomy perfectly, a heart-warming and laugh-out-loud production that makes you want to immediately go back and play all of the video games it references."

"I can’t think of single reason why you shouldn’t go and see ‘Kapow-i GoGo’. Okay, I lie. If you are unfamiliar with the world of Saturday morning cartoons, the play may seem quite alien to you. As condescending as it may seem, an older audience might not get it. But if you have any knowledge, no matter how cursory, of Dragonball Z, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Mario, or Cowboy Bebop, this is a show you are going to love. It’s fun, funny, and it never lets up.'

"Go see it. Go see it. Go see it. Go see it. Go see it. Go see it... I’m running out of ways to say that you must go and see 'Kapow-i GoGo.' I haven’t had this much fun at the theatre in ages."

New York Theatre Review
April 25th, 2015

"It is a delirious five-hour fever dream of pop culture theatre. You will cheer, your inner-child will beam, and it will be over before you know it. By the ending moments, one feels the same bittersweet emotion as watching the final episode of a favorite tv show. Here's to hoping that these marathons will continue indefinitely and that 'Kapow-i GoGo' will provide opportunities for many repeat viewings, several spin-off series, and a line of action figures."
