ALEXA RUSSO certified reviewer June 15, 2017
Turbulence is a Fringe MUST SEE. Robot Teammate is a group of smart, hilarious, and insanely talented writers and performers, and I know that no one who sees this show would disagree. The whole cast is incredible, and with the catchy and fun music of Sam Johnides, you will be singing the songs for days! I would definitely recommend Turbulence to anyone, and I hope to see it again! Get your tickets fast! ... full review

Turbulence is a must see show! It was a blast from start to finish! Robots have perfected the sci-fi musical genre while weaving in fun pop culture references. The music and choreography was incredible. Turbulence is a different story arc from the previous 2 musicals but it still had the same Robot playful charm. From blastoff, Turbulence keeps you on the edge of your Captain's Chair. ... full review
SAM KIRSCH certified reviewer June 15, 2017
Definitely a sensory treat, Turbulence! packs creative production value into their latest comedy musical that might feature the group's best musical numbers yet. The fast-paced plot and well-drawn characters make the play easy to enjoy and follow and the music (which is largely inspired by upbeat 80's pop-rock but includes a fun country-sing-a-long and a dreary but lovely acapella piece that captures the emotional low point) is perfectly weaved into the story. The acting and casting are once again spot-on, with each member of the troupe taking on a fun archetype and bringing their own clever subversive quirks. The stage design is purposefully minimal and the colorful, overwhelming lighting design is compelling and engaging, doing much of t... full review

If you haven't discovered Robot Teammate yet...GET ON IT ALREADY! :) they seriously blow me away again and again, I follow whatever they do because it's always brilliant and Turbulence! is no exception. My favorite highlights from the show were the intricate harmonies, spacercising, Mambo, the costumes, and the unibrow Martians. Every member of the cast delivered killer vocals and absolute hilarity, it was fantastic from start to finish. The choreo was out of this world (not to be punny...) and the score is FANTASTIC- you will leave desperately wanting the soundtrack!! Another smash hit from Robot Teammate!!! ... full review

ASHLEY STEED stage raw and la bitter lemons certified reviewer June 16, 2017
Taking all of the tropes of “a band of misfits come together to save the day”, Robot Teammate has created another musical that — although committed — doesn’t take itself too seriously. Set in 4242, this group of Earthlings must race the far-superior Martians around the sun with a ship made out of tuna cans. Needless to say, the odds are against them. Having created the show based on their musical improv, this show combines energetic rock music with catchy and witty lyrics in a tightly woven 55-minute story arc. Not afraid to get more serious, there’s a surprisingly touching a capella song about not wanting to die, which also displays just how talented these vocalists are. The main complaint about the show is their sound mixing — the show ... full review

This is a fun all-ages show, with humor and heart. Cool songs, sung very well, and backed by a rockin' live band. The cast each brings distinction to their archetypal roles, and they're all a joy. Brisk pace, but never feels rushed. Great design across the board from the lights and costumes, et al. Must See ! ... full review
TONY FRANKEL stage and cinema certified reviewer June 16, 2017
Too much fun! It's the story of a five-member crew and a space race with some geeky Martians.This playful, creative ensemble is tight, tight, tight. Dancing (expect "Spacercise" to become the next big fad), singing, a band and some truly hi-larious segments make this a joyous occasion. One a cappella song done blew me away. A happy happy unpretentious Fringe experience that can't be beat.... full review
