Review by BILL CHOTT

June 14, 2016 certified reviewer

What I liked

I really enjoyed the musical numbers. Zullo’s performance really comes alive in his singing and dancing. He and the cast brought the energy of this exciting time in comedy alive most through the music.

What I didn't like

The comedy sketches within the show were fun, but not as impressive as the music in capturing Belushi and this revolutionary part of the history of entertainment.

My overall impression

Comedy nerds, festival goers and all audiences will enjoy this show. Zullo can bottle his sweat and sell it after every show. A lot of hard work behind the scenes and on stage is apparent.

See Mary Birdsong (Reno 911) as Melania!

“Democracy in shambles? Why not put on a show? That’s the inciting impulse behind Trump Family Special, [a] concatenation of Franklin D Roosevelt’s fireside chats, the Partridge Family’s Christmas albums and the apocalypse.” - The Guardian


Adapted from the book "Wigfield", this play tells the story of a writer named Russell Hokes who stumbles upon a 'town' of people who have is hope. Hope to be recognized as the town they claim to be before the government destroys them.
