ALEX FOSTER certified reviewer June 15, 2017
"Dystopia" was a delightful exploration of the YA Dystopia genre exemplified by movies like "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent." The all-female cast does an incredible job of filling all the roles and creating vivid and recognizable characters in a world in which Love must triumph against an oppressive police state. Fans of improv will love the commitment and complexity of the world and scenes being created. Fans of theatre will appreciate the refreshing surprise of seeing an entirely original and unique piece created in front of them with the same integrity as a scripted production. Go see it while you can!... full review

Dystopia put an exciting and funny new light on young adult dystopia novels. Old worn-out tropes are either hilariously teased or turned upside down. I was amazed at how the cast seemed to be reading each other's minds. At certain points, I wondered "Where can they possibly go from there??" and they always took it somewhere brilliant.... full review

This show is hilarious. It's a rare group that can carry a full and cohesive plot from start to finish off the top of their collective heads. Dystopia takes the very popular YA dystopian genre and makes a mockery of it's tropes. And while being a spoof manages to be a cohesive and engaging play on it's own merits. ... full review

This so was perfectly executed by seasoned and witty performers. It was SO fun and SO good and SO creative. I was impressed all the way around with each character, the made-up storyline and execution. The music and sound effects were bonus. One girl, Kelly Lohman, literally only had one line because of how her character was set up at the beginning and she was as integral to the story as anyone. Her facial expressions and body language were perfection and the whole audience eagerly awaited what her line would be. Each character was defined, clear and likable. So impressed and plan on going again since the show is different each time. Nice job, ladies! ... full review
