It would be difficult to imagine a crisis that Klein and St. Jude cannot provide valuable insight on. ... full review
CARA MANDEL certified reviewer June 05, 2017
What Lawrence Meyers is doing with this show is very exciting. The format of combining both immersive experience and proscenium play is something I have not experienced before and I think has a very intriguing future. The cast is great! The story is fun!

Not only does Klein and St. Jude genuinely care about your crisis but they will personally ride knives out with you to the Gates of Hell to help you solve it.... full review

Larry Meyers is a rare talent who understands both his audience and his subject matter with equal skill. I found his comedy biting and the inter-character relationships clever and realistic. The cast is well matched to the quality of the work and all function very well together. I cannot say enough in particular about Stephanie Hyden, who particularly shines as Ms Klein, a spin doctor who's watching her partner spin out of control. If you have the opportunity I highly recommend Dark Arts, as well as the lovely and personalized immersive elements available as a prelude and finale via darkartsplay.com. ... full review

Funny, human, and an excellent doorway into the world of Klein and St. Jude... full review
JAY DECATOR certified reviewer June 22, 2017
An edgy comedy about a PR fighting against corrupt politicians and inefficient bureaucracy. I wasn't personally into the humor and coarse dialogue, but many in the audience laughed the whole way through. I was also expecting it to be more serious than it was, so that caught me off guard.... full review

Dark Arts Prelude - When immersive theatre works for me, I tend to forget that I’m at a show. I was not at a show playing a part at the Prelude to Dark Arts, I was at a crisis management firm talking about my “crisis”. The actors in the room were no longer people I recognized, but they were “Klein and St. Jude” and they were trying to help me get sorted. I have to admit, it really helped talking it out with them. I felt better afterwards. This prelude gives you some background information about Ms. Klein and Mr. St. Jude before you see them in “Dark Arts”. You do not need to see the Prelude to understand what’s happening within Dark Arts, but if you want a few nuggets of information that most people won’t know about and/or want to just ... full review

Exploring timely subject matter with a wicked sense of humor and some biting social commentary, there is fun to be had here.... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 22, 2017
I saw the Wednesday show (which happened to be the penultimate one) and I must say all the actors were definitely on their "A" game. The male lead's job was to carry the whole play and I think he pulled it off quite nicely. ... full review
MONIQUE LEBLEU 99% magazine/freelance certified reviewer June 23, 2017
Like Lawrence Meyers award-winning production of Porn Rock on the Parent’s Music Resource Center Senate Committee Hearings in 1985, the writing is well researched—or just lived—and the comedy comes from the fact that at some point we all have encountered an Andrew St. Jude (Meyers) or two, or have been a Marcia Bradford (Elizabeth Dement) in caring far too much in a job. ... full review
