Presented with a fondness for the corny, an appreciation of the macabre and flat-out love for things spooky, Dr. Zomba will magically win his way into your heart. Then, he’ll probably rip it out of your body, but with a silly grin as he does. The laughs come fast, as well as the groans. This vaudeville style show is campy fun.... full review

A fun intro to the spirit of "ghost shows", which is a genre I'd never heard of before, but now I imagine this is how Elvira got her start in the macabre side of show-biz.... full review

Wild, woolly, and wonder-filled, Dr. Zomba's Ghost Show of Terror is a fun and strange bit of time-traveling entertainment evoking the traveling spook shows of days gone by with a tight cast and funny script.... full review

Fun, campy, and humorous. The tiny black box theater was the perfect setting for this intimate show. Plenty of audience engagement. A nice way to spend a late Saturday night away from the usual haunts. (Pun absolutely intended.) David Beach as Dr. Zomba was entertaining as hell.... full review

Definitely a show of terror. Terrible "magic tricks", terrible acting, terrible writing, just an overall terrible experience. I don't know if this would be considered "art" when all it made me feel was that I wasted my $15. Seems like someone watched a series of bad children's party videos and threw it on stage hoping you wouldn't notice with the distraction of a caked faced lady with big breast. This show popped my Fringe Festival cherry and now, like a sad 16 year old girl, I regret you and you have ruined me for ever doing this again. Let me make something clear, I'm not just some unhappy person looking for things to crap on, I love theatre, original work and everything creepy. This was just not my cup of tea nor will it be yours if a qua... full review

Pretty terrible. I'm a huge fan of magic, camp, and spook shows. This comes across as someone who heard about Spook shows and tried to throw one together in a week. There are about 3 magic tricks and only one actually ties in to the theme. The tricks are handled very poorly. There is a "plot" which doesn't work as none of these performers seem incredibly skilled at acting and the father character looks no older than his daughter. All do have prior experience so maybe this priloduction just doesnt display their skills fully. People did leave in the middle of the show, but since it was only 40 minutes, we stuck in through the bitter end; hoping a turn would show the show's clumsyness would be revealed to be intentional. Nope. The show ... full review

We wanted to like it, but badly performed magic and a lack of charisma left us disappointed. ... full review
