Review by SPENCER FRANKEBERGER

June 05, 2017 certified reviewer

What I liked

This show is super hysterical, and is a fun parody of comic books/comic book culture. The cast worked very well together, and the harmonies were tight. Aunt May was particularly hilarious as was the Bugle’s receptionist (Betty, I think?). Show overall is very polished.

What I didn't like

The show may be TOO polished. Though that’s not necessarily a bad thing…if I had to say ANYTHING, it would be the small cast. While almost necessary for a Fringe show, sometimes it was very obvious when the ensemble was changing between characters but sometimes their face looked the same or their outfit was the same, but as long as you suspend your disbelief, it should be fine. Then again, it is a parody…

My overall impression

A sharp, well-written script that not only pokes fun at comic culture but also provides its own sense of whimsy that allows for a light-hearted, overall family-friendly hour and twenty minutes at the theatre.
