STEVE MADAR certified reviewer June 17, 2014
There is a sweet madness that this show gives off and a joy that comes from ripping apart Shakespeare and making it a hoot. Exuberent performances abound in this retelling of Much Ado plus aliens. From fun devices to create the "deformed ones," to irreverent soliloquies (notably Arthur Keng), and neon glowsticks to create the mood, this Shakespeare is on the trail of something good. There is also an outstanding performance from Evan Smith, who holds all the disparate elements together. If I had only one wish for this show: more aliens. ... full review

Funny show, the best bits were the parts with the aliens, the actor who plays the bastard and the actor who played the manservant were both so committed and funny…fun stuff!... full review

Once you give in to the silliness you're in for a fun ride... Like the other reviewers, however, I wanted even more silliness. I mean if you're gonna do aliens with Shakespeare, let's see more aliens! At this point we don't even care about plot, so when the aliens disappeared for a while I was a little bummed. But over all it was a good time. I especially liked the use of live music/sound effects.... full review

Tell ya friends. Tell ya neighbors. This is by far my favorite show of Fringe thus far. Yes please, more please. Bravo to Megan Kelly for her brilliant directing/writing prowess! The show is tight, and every single moment is given due note. Arthur Keng is an especially incredible force, and every single choice he made was perfection. Because every moment was so cleverly mapped out, I found myself on the edge of my seat with anticipation, but completely confident that whatever came next, would be even better than the last. ... full review

Love quirky theatre. The kind you get from actors and writers who are just branching out and have lots of creative ideas. This is one of those shows. I, for one, think even the Bard can be turned upside down for fun and entertainment and this was one of those times that worked on many levels. Decent performances and the live sound effects were a real treat!... full review
