What I liked

Featuring goofy illusions, a mad doctor who may have committed acts of murder in the past, a sultry assistant who may not be there on her own free will, a henchman with an evil(ish) demeanor… what’s not to love? Campy and fun! The final sequence is a visual treat!

What I didn't like

Some of the staging was a little awkward and too far upstage it seemed, but I saw a preview performance and that is something that could be unique to that single performance, not sure.

My overall impression

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.
