What I liked

The “kitchen-sink” approach where every part works. There is nothing the inventive minds of School of Night won’t seek to toss into their eclectic visions. Your first thought might be “Huh, does the dance party/sex scene really belong next to the impassioned classical verse which is next to the crazy-elaborate sword fight and wait, is that a rubber dildo?” And the answer is always, “YES! Holy shit! It is exactly right!” Well-acted, well-directed madness.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

Scarcely a surprise but The School of Night folks have killed it again. I always marvel at their ability to cram so much (fights, music, elaborate costuming, raves, first-rate performances) into so little (short run time, small space). It’s a wildly entertaining spectacle that deserves all the eyes it can get. Go see it!
