Action packed to the fullest! Loved seeing my childhood come to life. Such iconic characters that ranged from old school to new school. They covered all of their bases. This is a must see. Team Halo all the way! ... full review

The show was hilarious! I was not too sure what I was getting myself into and it was a splendid surprise. I am a huge Hunger Games fanatic. To see the games live onstage sent thrills throughout my whole body. There was not a single moment where I caught myself inattentive. I mean how could you be?! The fights were perfectly choreographed. Those choreographers have a warped sense of humor and I loved it! I really enjoyed the hosts. Those four were riding the same wave length and really helped guide me through what was expected of me as I controlled the outcomes of the show. I'm an old school gamer who played with Pokemon cards growing up. To see Mario and Jigglypuff onstage together warmed my heart. The actor playing Mario had so much energy ... full review

A must see. This is without a doubt the best show I've seen on Fringe and that's coming from someone who's directed a Fringe show before. If you're into retro video games, you'll love this show. ... full review

Put together a Hunger game theme with an assortment of popular video game characters in a live action show then have the audience be the decision makers on who lives or dies. This is the latest cutting edge avant guard theatre from Make Believe Stage Productions. Guided by four popular and talented character Hosts armed with stop action gadgets, 12 video characters barter with the audience on their popularity, skills, and strengths, then engage each other with fast paced improvisation and some excellent stunt combat. No one knows each night who wins and there are endless possibilities and confrontations. An intriguing, compelling, and entertaining stage experience for any game video follower where now their favorites come out of the computer... full review

Rarely have I seen a show where there is this much audience participation. I loved feeling like I really helped decide the course of the show. Getting to see so many of my favorite characters fight was a mix of "smash bros" and a goosebumps choose-your-adventure experience. I genuinely loved this show and the fight choreography was amazing!! Anyone deciding on something to see this year at fringe: see. This. SHOW!! I'm going again, without a doubt.... full review

What a fun show!! Super heavy with fun fight choreography; some good, some great and some epic! The improv was great and all the actors were 100% in it. My personal favorites were Donkey Kong and the yellow mortal combat guy! Def worth the cost and time! A fun show to see! ... full review

I have been hearing hype about this show for months since the audition notices came out. It was an intriguing concept and I was excited to see how it would manifest itself. It did not disappoint. The show was fledged out perfectly in terms of each character. The actors most certainly did their homework and did everything possible to make sure that these characters- characters that were beloved by so many people- were what people desired and hoped they would be. The cast was fantastic and the hosts did a brilliant job at sending the story along. The story is different every night and I can only imagine the adrenaline backstage. The audience had a blast and it was a splendid way to spend a Friday evening. Definitely go see it. Whether you are ... full review

A very fun show. Quick and relevant wit keeps you laughing, and there's no shortage of stellar fight choreography. Characters and music are well-represented and quite nostalgic for me, though you won't be lost if you have no idea who any of them are. ... full review

WHAT I NEVER TOLD YOU

Sometimes love becomes transparent, but is it too late? Through the course of one evening, Nick and Alysha ultimately remind themselves how deep their love is. A knock on the door, however, brings the world crashing down around them.

'Til Death...

A night of celebration. A stunning revelation. A bond's cessation. Happy Anniversary, Kev & Steph. After tonight, things will never be the same.
