ERIN BECK ACAIN certified reviewer June 14, 2015
I loved this production! Sci-fi is a bold choice for theater - an alien world in a black box forces a lot to the imagination, but Alien used straightforward dialogue, strong characters, and exceptional makeup to create a vivid, fully realized new galaxy complete with complex and fascinating new races. I especially enjoyed that the makeup, prosthetics, and costumes for each character were similar enough to indicate one people but still unique to each individual. Each scene simply written so the honesty of the story shines. The actors, equally honest, equally memorable. And sword fighting. Sci-fi with sword fighting - good sword fighting - how can you beat that?!... full review

What a treat to get to journey to a brand-new and original sci-fi universe and spend a too-brief moment with these realistic aliens. Lovable characters, exciting combat and swordplay and brilliant make-up and costumes make this a must-see show for sci-fi/fantasy fans. I felt privileged to get to see it. Congratulations to the entire cast.... full review

Such an inventive original piece of work. This is unlike most theater shows out there, stepping into a fully foreign world that brims with relatable relationships and feelings. The acting is solid all around, the costumes and make-up are transformative, just a truly enjoyable experience. ... full review
