John Belushi was chaos incarnate. So it sort of feels appropriate that a play about his early career should also feel like chaos incarnate. The question however, is whether that chaos is happening purely ONSTAGE or also behind-the-scenes. And while I really, REALLY liked Jack Zullo AS john Belushi himself, I wasn't entirely sure about where the chaos was coming from in the rest of the current version of this production. It's a giant cast of actors who are playing comedians I know--but I can't recognize them from the actors' performances or costumes or mannerisms. There are lots of scenes that are apparently replications of early Second City and other comic sketches--but they seem somehow unrehearsed (which seems strange, given that the o... full review

I really enjoyed this program.... full review

Diappointing is being kind.Ignoring the years from John making it to his intimely death was a missed opportunity.Instead the show peters out with a mediocre Blues Brothers rendition,and then descends into a self indulgent Cast dance party on stage. All in all,as a tribute to an iconic genius this was an epic fail... full review
