This show is fucking amazing. The best thing CPC has done, bar none. Packing eleven million people onto the postage stamp stage of Three Clubs doing an Elizabethan wedding dance to "Smells Like Teen Spirit"?? Seriously? How did they do this???? Bar. Raised. Every character had an arc, the new players were spot on, the choreography was amazing, the (vague spoiler) Ophelia scene was a new unbelievably dark shade to the usual fun times, it was laugh out loud funny, super sexy (as always), I always appreciate wild takes on the Bard, and the band was ON FIRE! Alli Miller and Sarah Haworth-Hodges killed it again and improved on what seemed un-improvable. (Side note: my goal in life remains - "to be Schoen Hodges.") Brava and bravo. ... full review

Do you like enjoying yourself as you watch a show? If you do then get your butt in a seat for Shakeslesque. I fantastic triple threat of a show. A funny as hell script, exquisite choreography, and harmonies to bring the house down. It is a show not to be missed. And i still have no idea how they made that many costume changes and fit so many people on that stage in such a seamless way. ... full review

"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them..." never before have I witness greatness hip-thrusted so hard! I have seen the Cherries before, Hell, I have even shared the stage with them, but gone are the days of bubble gum pop burlesque. The story line, the songs, the band, the costumes, and oh, did I mention the beautiful women, and men, are truly brilliant. The gauntlet has been thrown to anyone trying to touch their title as Hollywood Fringe Royalty, Cherry Poppins is the pinnacle. Housed perfectly at the prominent Three Clubs, this this prim production has too many positives to mention, but a few of my favorites are both of the Beatles songs and the Steam Room scene!!!

Anthony Hopkins sings Tom Waits while Ophelia dances with scantily clad ladies. Non stop fun with some nerds references that if you don't get there's still plenty to be entertained by. See it for the witch(es) character. She effectively and hilariously plays 3 ppl at once.... full review

Cherry Poppins has been called Fringe Royalty and they earned the title yet again. They have raised the bar from previous productions and they had already set it well above head height. The show manages to go from a hilarious and riotous sex comedy to a heart breaking tragedy all the while treating the audience with an endless stream of reimagined pop music, and dick jokes. This company has taken their usually stellar shows and upped their game even further. This show is amazing. ... full review

I've only ever seen one burlesque show before and it was CPP's Harry Potter production. I was simply amazed. Who knew there could be comedy in burlesque, or a live band, or even choreographed dance and song numbers? Not this guy. I had to see "To Thine Own Cherry Be True" and all I have to say is wow. They just get better and better. Everything down to the writing is beyond solid. The song and dance numbers? Even better than before. It's safe to say I'll be back for the next one. ... full review
