What I liked

Joshua Thomas gives a captivating performance and endurance. His comedic timing is both hilarious and heart breaking as a God who tries to build himself up. Yet, like Tinkerbell, his magic wanes without believers and his attempts grow in futility until he is trapped, alone, in this space. Branda Lock makes good use of the tiny Studio C to add to the claustrophobia of a God trapped in a prison and creates a great pacing and rhythm to the manic God’s desperate attempts to be relevant.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

Captivating in absurdity, comedy, and sadness. This show is engaging and well crafted from the writing, to the directing and performance.
