My overall impression

From the moment you step into the theater, you know this show is going to be uniquely delightful. Heck, you know before you even step inside – but I don’t want to give anything away. Just be prepared for a theatrical experience that is truly a RIDE — sharp-witted solo performer Mike Schlitt and his ninja-like production team whisk the proceedings along with the fluidity and unexpected twists and turns of a really excellent theme park roller coaster. Schlitt brings scholarly insight, manic cartoon-like physicality, and naked honesty to this tale of fathers and sons, both onscreen and off. And there’s some special treats for those of us who appreciate the cinema genre of “disasterpiece” – those movies that are so bad, they’re good… Expertly weaving in a kaleidoscope of movie clips, bombastic soundtracks, and a couple spontaneous dance numbers, this show is an awesome and holy RIDE indeed!
