Review by SPENCER FRANKEBERGER

June 12, 2016 certified reviewer

What I liked

the concept and the improv quality

What I didn't like

The 30-minute preparation before the presentation (show started at 11, but that included introducing players, songs, etc. for the show to ultimately start at 11:30, ending at 12:30 when I expected it to end at 12 with a “1 hour” run time). Also, some of the performers sang songs that seemed a bit out of their comfort range.

My overall impression

There was a lot of hype surrounding this show from a lot of people I talked to who highly recommended it, and while I enjoyed it, it didn’t quite meet my expectations. Is it worth checking out at least once? Yes, it’s free and if you can stay up late after Fringe-ing all day. If it’s on your list, check it out. The guest stars blew me away as did Mitchell in the main cast, and I thought the rest of the main cast was good, too, but the standouts for me were the guest stars and Mitchell.
