What I liked
The manner of which Punch (Jimmy Slonina) played off each character was highly entertaining and comical. Slonina’s ability to crack up the audience with only his expressions was highly amusing. Synden Healy (Pretty Polly) hilariously captured several characters and their diverse personas, from an air-headed girl, to a withered old man. All of the actors truly mastered the art of physical comedy. The clever sound effects and props only added to the absolute hilarity of this show.
What I didn't like
There really is nothing I did not like about this show! Strongly recommend, unless you are faint hearted!
My overall impression
This live adaptation of Punch and Judy is absolutely hilarious! Not a moment goes by when you’re not laughing. The actors show their excellent abilities and theatrical prowess in their perfectly cast roles. Director Christopher Johnson did an incredible job adapting this puppet show into a live action play. Incorporating creative elements such as a live, one-man foley, and a partition emulating a puppet stage was genius! The fight choreography by Jen Alberts was superb, and added to the comedic brilliance of this production. Do not miss this brash, gruesome, and uproarious gem!
