A great time! Michael Bernardi rocked it as Jeff Goldblum. They've added another show, so you've got no excuse to miss it now!... full review

This team is wickedly talented!! I was so impressed by their ability to crank out such a long and complicated movie without missing a beat, and add creative and hilarious musical numbers! "Blastronaut" was hysterical, Michael Bernardi as Jeff Goldblum was SPOT ON, and Tom DeTrinis blew me away with his high notes. If you've never seen a 30 min musical… you are seriously missing out.... full review

Loved it loved it loved it! Go see it. RIght now. At 30 minutes, it shaves nearly 2 hours off the runtime of the overblown film. We're all busy, we've got places to be. The song at the beginning of the show promises that "it's fast, it's fun, it's fucking GREAT." Which it delivers. There is a much more in-depth review that goes into the people that made the magic happen. All I can say is that you should stop reading this damned website and get your asses to some legitimate theater. Now! Go! I'll wait here.... full review

It was a cute short musical, the actors gave it their all and did very well. I was surprised at how well Chaz did he has come a long way. I love the CELEBRATION THEATRE where it was at, it is small and just really a great place to see shows.... full review

It was absolutely amazing. After already having seen several other 30 minute musicals that were equally hysterical, expectations were pretty high. However, once again, the troop putting on the show managed to exceed all our expectations leaving us and the rest of the audience with tears of laughter streaming down our faces, gasping for breath. I can't wait for the next musical to come out!... full review

If you like your musicals short, fast-paced, funny, and smart enough to spoof the big guys while delivering a healthy dose of pure fun, this is the musical for you. Brooke Seguin's 30 MM: Independence Day clocks in around 40 minutes, which is plenty of time to run the aliens out of town and save the planet in a manner that would do the Fresh Prince proud, especially if he got to do it with a rap. Charismatic Tommy Hobson takes on the Will Smith role of black astronaut "Blastronaut" Steve Hiller, a hotheaded pilot who can't wait to get up in the air and kick some alien ass. He's terrific at capturing Smith's overly confident attitude, plus he sings and dances and has great timing. Michael Bernardi's impersonation of Jeff Goldblum as David ... full review
