What I liked

The idea of clones as serving humans for our own personal needs is humorous fodder for a musical. The performances were fantastic. I especially liked Peter Carrier as Chad. He was likeable as the dim witted brother and had immense vocal chops. Emily Clark as Erica brought just the right combination of bite and desperation to her role as the ambitious reporter Erica. It was confusing neither of these characters had the same accent as their siblings, however. Parissa Koo as the ultra vapid Jules brought a brilliant empty sincerity to her role as a clone. Pam Eberhardt has an amazing voice and the comedic chops to carry off the marathon role of Laura, the overzealous scientist of the Agency . Scott Golden was hilarious as every-man Brian, especially when describing how his wife died.

What I didn't like

The rules of the clone world could have been laid out more clearly from the beginning. When they were merely sung in a group number it was hard to understand what was happening. Some of the songs went on too long for no reason, but they were beautifully sung and orchestrated.

My overall impression

Great songs, great voices, lots of fun!

Jessie's Messy Mind

As an artist living with schizo-affective, Jessie reveals mental difference in a refreshing new way. With original music, hilarious alternate personalities and a look inside a true manic episode, you'll see crazy like you've never seen it before.
