LAUREN GORSKI certified reviewer June 12, 2017
I liked the energy and music. The show is self-aware of it's fan fiction roots and doesn't shy away from it. As a Buffy fan, I liked the Buffy/Dawn song the most because it was a good balance of commentary on the show and saying something new rather than some other moments that felt like rehashing of familiar territory. The fight scenes were exciting, for the size of the space! ... full review

This show was incredibly fun and entertaining to watch from start to finish! The music, book and lyrics were all top notch. I have only seen the Buffy movie and a few episodes of the TV show and I cannot stand the Twilight series, but it was still easy for me to follow. If you are a fan of either or both of those series you will get all of the little in jokes. If you're an "outsider" like me, there is still more than enough for you to be entertained. Highly recommend seeing this show!... full review

A super fun show for fanboys and girls and normal people, too! While it's definitely way more entertaining if you understand the references, this show is also silly enough with enough badass performers crushing their vocals that non-Buffy/Twilight folks can still have a good time. The show is high energy start to finish, immersing the audience in a carnivalesque atmosphere of fun. Every actor is perfectly cast (and cast in multiple roles, which services the comedy beautifully) and lampoons the source material with aplomb. I have to say, Corrine's Bella was uncanny (though K.Stew never had half that stage presence) and she had me in stitches. Sherry's Buffy was spot on with snark, too. With excellent vocal performers and comedians alike, this... full review

Fringe is about experimentation. This is an experiment and the results are an amazing combination of the Buffy and Twilight universes. Buffy the Vampire and her crew come across Edward and the Twilight crew and what happens is a glorious battle of one franchise versus another. You can tell that they are fans due to the hilariously pointed out plot holes and trivia that were in the show. This had me smiling and laughing through the whole show to the point where my face hurt. It’s that good. This is a musical and they deliver some great and funny songs that will leave your eyes tearing. This takes place at the Three Clubs, if you’ve been there, you know how small the stage is, so huge props for the fight scenes that took place on that stage... full review

We planned to see this, but ran into venue problems. So this is more of a warning: If you do go see this show, make sure everyone in your party is over 21 and has ID. Knowing the cast, it should be a great show and I'm sorry we had to miss it.... full review

The music is catchy, the lyrics are ridiculous, and the actors are having a blast. Have a drink, sit back, and enjoy the musical mayhem as the body count rises! Even if you have never seen Buffy/Twilight, you will enjoy yourself! ... full review
