Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if You laughed at "The Interview". Like one liners. Enjoy some mindless entertainment. Enjoy a far reaching storyline done by talented folks.

Don't see it if You know nothing about news happenings. Have no sense of humor. Don't have 90 minutes to just be entertained.

“While the events that inspired ‘Tailspin!’ may not be fresh in audiences’ minds to give this play the resonance it might have had a year ago, it still offers plenty of comedic insight into our entertainment-centric lives...Each of the actors (guided by director Kelly Webb) shows a knack for physical humor and for delivering their lines with the full comedic potency intended by playwright Zach Stephens.”

"Stephens’ script is funny and energetic but be warned: everyone should get ready to be offended. Stephens places race, gender, and religious jokes all over the place to hammer home his comedy. If you can get past that then you’re in store for fun...Even though it runs about an hour and a half, Tailspin! feels a bit too long. Some of the jokes go on longer than they should...It’s evident that 'Tailspin!' oozes potential. It just needs to be reigned in."
