My overall impression

Luminous. A delight. An experience. I had no idea what to expect walking into a play about searching for happiness. What I found was lightning in a bottle. The writing here is razor sharp, the performance is daring and specific and unabashedly alive, the direction is rigorous and daring. A wonderfully quirky and experimental mix of story, song, dance and character that meld into something quite beautiful and truly moving. For anyone looking for a grounded comparison for a show that defies definition, its whimsy and zest for life bear shades of “Amélie.” “Murder Blood Bear Story” is astute and keenly observed, yet steeped in the fantastic. Do yourself a favor and go eat some sunshine.
