David Zahir Blue review http://zahirblue.blogspot.com/2014/06/nightmaricomio-review.html "feel the attraction of having your brain pulled a little outside its usual box" "Nightmaricomio turns out very Dionysian indeed, possibly the most such I've ever seen" "the players become animals, become trees or forces of nature" "Kevin Van Cott is a musician on stage and arguably his skills as a drummer will win your applause" "needs experiencing rather than explaining" ... full review

Reviewed by Pauline Adamek ***This review first appeared on www.StageRaw.com*** A guy named Kevin (musician Kevin Van Cott) pounds away at a drum kit while a writhing ball of cast members moan and gyrate manically like a nest of vipers. And that’s pretty much it for an excruciating 35 minutes that feels like an eternity. "Nightmaricomio" is a lazy mash-up of two previous ZJU shows, "Manicomio" and "Nightmares." As we enter a small theater with all its seats removed, we see the cast in action. The men are clad in shredded zombie-like rags while the women are wearing tight, stripy aerobics wear and bras. All have their faces painted with lightning bolts and geometric designs much like the Kiss Army fan club. Striving to be an expe... full review

I caught this show as a sneak preview last Thursday at the Asylum Theatre Lab. No one is doing theatre like this, anywhere else. It's a full-on, in the round, interactive experience. The audience loved it. I wouldn't be surprised if it's up for some awards. The experience is different for each audience member, so I highly recommend you coming out and trying the Nightmaricomio experience for yourself. ... full review

If you haven't seen a ZJU show this is a must experience, because is that.. an experience, nothing like you have experience before on a theater. A lot of movement, live music and a journey that will let you talking about it. ... full review

If movement and drums aren't your thing, don't come to a show like this- but since I love them, I am grateful to have seen it. Even my friend, who never sees this stuff, liked it. It reminded me of ancient, primal theatre- I feel that is where the plot may even have started, but as for plot, I think everyone may have a different interpretation of that. Mine had it go from that ancient place and wend its way up through humanity, as we try to evolve. I was also trying to interpret the costumes within the scope of this- they did a good job, I think, creating something that needn't be attached to any current culture, which was an issue on my mind- how can we celebrate cultures without disrespecting them? Do we need to create new culture? I... full review

The Fringe is the perfect time to experiment and bring ground-breaking works to the public, and Zombie Joe's Underground Theatre Group has done a fine job of introducing us to their company. Featuring an incredible cadre of perfomers, Nightmaricomio delivers where so many others have failed - it is a breath of fresh air and a spectacle to behold.
