DAWN ALDEN uncertified reviewer June 05, 2016
This high-energy, irreverent, darkly-comedic piece is physical comedy at its best. It takes the patriarchy, police violence, sexual assault and even a bit of the current presidential race to their limits, showing them at their grotesque best. Not for the faint-of-heart, but for those with a touch of the ruthless in their humor, this show is a four course meal. ... full review

These people are damn talented. A highly theatrical show with tasteful, hilarious violence and wonderfully choreographed fight sequences. The actors just nail the physicality of being a live puppet.

This show relies heavily on physical comedy and comedic timing to work, and boy, does it sure have both. And a lot of it. I saw a preview, and it was tight. I was crying so hard from laughing. I cannot express how brilliant this show is. It's very low-brow humor, but it finds its sophistication within that humor.

Whatever you do, DO NOT miss this show. Holy...wow!... full review
