Well staged, Well played, Ambitious, Fun, Smart

See it if a send-up/mash-up of old sci-fi movies seen through a prism of 1950s style sounds interesting to you.

Don't see it if you have no appetite for nonsense, even when it’s very smartly done.

Also I am a child of the 1950s, so perhaps I experienced the added thrill o... Read more Read less

Missing humor, Talented cast, Deadly pacing, Deadly earnest, Great design

See it if want 2 support Nylon Fusion or have friends in the show, 2 applaud ambitious effort, 4 excellent costume design, robotic effects,

Don't see it if need more tongue in cheek, speed in presentation, dislike the lackluster, not into sci-fi, think gentle acoustic guitar not match for sci-fi

Fluffy, Quirky, Disappointing, Banal, Ambitious

See it if You like mediocrity. Predictably plot however uninteresting. Judokas for creative costumes with interesting cast of many.

Don't see it if You want imaginative sci-fi plot. This play can be skipped and thrown away. In fact, I would urge the playwright to start over again.

Delightful cast of 25 in their costumes is why you should see this show!, Too meandering: too easily lose audience's short attention span, The costumes alone could catapult this show into cult-status cosplay!!!, Story needs to be tightened and shortened, Hilarious but long-winded

See it if You like creative, experimental theatre that is not afraid to mash styles, eras, plots, motifs, etc. You are sure to connect with something.

Don't see it if You like predictable plots anchored to reality. A melting pot of Sci-fi is not your preferred theatre diet. BUT the Costumes are worth it!!!

Also I loved, loved, loved Ms. Janet Mervin's costumes. They keep the audie... Read more Read less

Great staging, Great acting, Entertaining, Ambitious, Confusing

See it if you like science fiction and technical-speak. Great staging and beautiful costumes.

Don't see it if you get confused by a bunch of different stories leading up to the climax.

Great costumes, Disappointing, Dated, Cliched, Dizzying

See it if you like b-movies. or if your friend is in the cast.

Don't see it if you don't like b-movies. or if you expect any kind of world-building or coherent set-up.

Completely lacking style, Terrible dialogue, Poorly directed, Dull, Confusing

See it if You want to get your fill on attempts at dissecting sci-fi cliches? You don’t mind long-drawn narration and expositional dialogue.

Don't see it if You are looking for something with a precise plot and compelling characters with needs and objectives.

Must see, Quirky, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You want to be entertained, love scifi, want to see something different, be filled with laughter, and have an excellent time in the theatre.

Don't see it if You are not willing to take a risk, love scifi, want to see a straight play, love music or dance in a show this will not be for you.

"A metaverse of sci-fi action seasoned with music and dance, future and past…an ambitious production with a sweeping arc. Janet Bentley directs the 26 actors/dancers/musicians with tremendous precision, giving personality to humans, robots, Nadirians, and more."
