June 21, 2015 stage and cinema/bitter lemons

My overall impression

It’s just the Fringe-iest of the Fringe! Director Dave Reynolds is deliriously adorable as Bruce, the time-traveler who finds himself face-to-face with the girl of his dreams and silly space villains. Surprisingly, there are some truly catchy tunes that I found myself humming hours later; that happens so rarely in new musicals. There are certainly many enjoyable aspects (funny dialogue and music direction among them). However, the show is practically a silly spoof of itself, so it could use better character development and sound design, and less time spent on clunky sets and scene changes; but that can happen when the director is in the show. Problematic, yes, but definitely not a waste of your time.
