What I liked

The actors were great! Good comedic timing, I could definitely tell that they did their research in getting character nuances, which as a fan of Buffy specifically, I very much enjoyed! Good writing. The musicians were excellent, especially the keyboard/piano player — was extremely impressed with her!

What I didn't like

I’m not sure if the sound guy was the house guy at Three Clubs, or if someone was brought in specifically — but this was extremely problematic. The decibel levels were physically painful with the vocal mics to the point that they did a huge disservice to the cast. My ears were ringing for at least 2 hours after the show.

My overall impression

Writing Content: Very funny
Acting: Well prepared, great job all around, not a weak member of the cast whatsoever
Music: Totally accurate genre, well composed
Music Performance: Couldn’t get enough
Sound: Dangerous and painful in levels
Costumes: BRILLIANT (especially Jacob)
Overall: 7/10, had a lot of fun! Great job!
