What I liked

Sherry Berg literally slays it as Buffy. She commands the stage every time she appears, and her vocal chops are incredible. The songs are all catchy and fun. The fight choreography is fantastic, kudos to Marc Leclerc for utilizing the small space brilliantly.

What I didn't like

A lot of the jokes went right over my head because I am not a fan of the Twilight series at all or Buffy. I wish that this show was a bit more accessible for people that aren’t huge fans of either series because I really wanted to get all of the jokes. The British accents were distracting rather than effective, and there were parts where the show could definitely have been shortened/tightened up (it felt like a very long hour at times).

My overall impression

A fun musical with catchy tunes, wonderful fight choreography and some standout performances (Sherry Berg in particular as Buffy is great!). Parts are hard to understand/jokes don’t necessarily make sense if you are not a fan of Twilight and/or Buffy. With some reworking and minor tweaks, I think this could be a really amazing show.
