Delightful, Great staging

See it if Want to see a silly fantasy in the mind of an obsessed fan. Cleverly staged and overacted just the right amount.

Don't see it if Need substance. A bit too long - could have been trimmed to be a one-act play.

Silly, Creative, A bit unfocused, Great acting

See it if This is a goofy play that is a lot of fun if you don't mind suspending your disbelief for adult swim-style random humor.

Don't see it if It was a bit long and had (in my opinion) unnecessary attempted moments of gravity amongst the madcap silliness.
