As a six-year fan of the movie TROLL 2, I was really hoping that NILBOG would do the movie justice... IT DID MORE!!! If you love TROLL 2, or if you've never seen it before, it doesn't matter! The actors were having a blast on stage and how could they not? The music was phenomenal, I was singing "I'm a Troll 2 fan, and I don't care..." long after I left the theater. The actors were all phenomenal, and they successfully maintained the spirit of the actors from the film while bringing their own characterization to the stage. They all did phenomenal work. When Robert Towers said his first line as the Store Clerk, it truly felt like the original character was standing there on the stage! Whoever thought of making Stonehenge Sacred Stone i... full review

SO MUCH FUN! I happen to know the horror/genius that is TROLL 2 and you'd definitely benefit from knowing it, but it's by no means a requirement! A great (huge!) cast with fun numbers doing a bang-up job with source material! All the usual 2-Cent suspects are unsurprisingly wonderful, with a temporary addition of Sarah Wolter who was a stand-out! Don't piss on their hospitality!... full review

A ridiculous romp of non-stop rowdy raucous revelry. If you are a fan of bad films, and particularly the gem that is Troll 2 (there are no trolls in it!), then this is the musical parody for you. Scenery is chewed splendidly, as it should be. You'll probably want to have a couple drinks, eat some green tinted popcorn, and let loose with the rest of the crowd. You'll have as much fun as the cast clearly is having. ... full review

This unauthorized musical parody of TROLL 2, largely regarded as the best worst movie ever made, is raucous to the extreme, which is not a bad thing. The performers give it everything they've got, with plenty of audience interaction. Packed with lots of surprises (even if you can quote every line of the movie), it is the definition of "never boring". The sold-out audience loved every second of the preview and what's not to love?... full review

what an incredibly good time at the bar! Troll 2 comes alive in all it's chaotic, messy glory with 2Cents' rip-roaring musical adventure. Kristen Boule brings together an enormous cast full of incredible performers, along with original songs by the incredibly talented Juan Lozano for a show that will leave you breathless and a little dizzy (in the best way). it's a completely interactive experience. expect to get up close and personal with pretty much the entire talented cast. it's hard to pick stand-outs (everybody's great) but favorites were the entire Waits family (Tiffany Asta, Kevin Herrmann, Francesca Manzi, Megan Harwick), Elliott and his friends (Cory Robison, Bryan Bertone, Phillip Asta, Chris Laneheart), and the wonderful villa... full review

Brilliant, wonderful! As good as any ensemble comedy I've seen in 30 years of going to about a play a week in LA. Brings to mind the old Cast Theatre productions. I'm coming back with everyone I can get to join me. ... full review

Adapting the cult-classic film Troll 2 for the stage is not easy. The structure is a mess, the plot has major holes and non-sequators, the character goals and intentions make no sense and the film is just plain terrible. I mean, that's why it's considered the worst movie ever made, right? 2 Cents Theatre Company has mounted their own musical version of the b-movie, entitled Nilbog: The Unauthorized Musical Parody Of Troll 2, for the Hollywood Fringe Festival. And in case you missed it, that’s “Goblin” spelled backwards. For the people who have seen the absurd source material, Nilbog is an absolute scream. It faithfully follows the movie, while taking some liberties to include references to other cult favorites like The Room and weirdly e... full review
