Clever, Funny, Great staging

See it if you appreciate inventive low-budget staging combined with thoughtful content, delivered with humor and gusto.

Don't see it if production value is the most important thing for you. Read more

March 25th, 2017

"The creative team really goes all out in this delightfully raunchy satire...With naysayers on climate change in political office, the satirical multimedia puppet show remains relevant...The piece needs some recalibration in order to tell the story with more clarity, thus striking a more powerful punch. Still, it’s a daring experiment with both heart and wit, which one would thoroughly enjoy if they're willing to fully embrace the creators’ sincerity in making a cornucopia of bold choices."

“I’m not quite sure what to say that doesn’t dilute its incredible strangeness and epic verve…There’s a lot going on in ‘Steve of Tomorrow,’ in form as well as content…The play generally declines to give too much information, luxuriating instead in the strangeness of it all, the frisson caused by its various formal elements clashing together...The strange gaps in ‘Steve of Tomorrow,’ the long silences and the fuzzy animations, are as crucial to its fabric as anything that goes smoothly.”

"It’s a performance of such playfulness and skill, you feel like your Barbie doll gave you a Pulitzer Prize-winning discourse on human fallibility. It’s euphoria inducing...Commander wrote and directed this exquisite experience. He takes us on a skyrocket of story at racehorse speed around a digital track. As performers, Commander and Clair serve the story with focus and an extraordinary output of high-voltage energy...It’s loud and full and phenomenal."

For a previous production

"While there’s definitely purpose to the story line, the production’s real draw is the frenzy of multi-media and puppetry production values...'Steve of Tomorrow' is a chaotic, message-laden, technical maelstrom of a puppet show that’s bound to interest lovers of the medium, as well as those curious about perhaps a more realistic view of what the world of tomorrow might look like."

For a previous production

"The performance is athletic; each of the artists shows incredible range and a remarkable confidence with chaos…The work is demonstrably inventive and manages to be both technically impressive and pretty janky looking...In addition to attracting offbeat theater goers and digital media wonks, the play will also appeal to sci-fi geeks and nerds of all creeds, who seek out like-minded obsessives on the blogosphere to collectively comb over their chosen niche material."
