My overall impression

These guys PLAY! That’s the most exciting part of this show is that you can tell the cast is having fun most of the time.

There seemed to be a louder pulse amongst the alien scenes; it would have been fun to see how a full alien take over affected MUCH ADO, now it seems like a side dish. Like those amazing mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving that you just keep going back for and wanting another pound of when they are all gone… Once you gave me aliens – all I wanted was more silliness and campiness of the aliens.

The actor playing the role of Smith attacked the role of servant to alien slayer with amazing ease, he made me giggle the whole show. Arthur Keng was also wonderful as a hobbled alien plotting to take over the world.

All in all, it’s a fun show with quirky twists and turns. Added bonus: they give you a glow stick to play with…who doesn’t LOVE glow sticks?
