A broad comedy that milks the ridiculous concept for big laughs, this show manages to make some sharp observations about romance and commitment. Four super-heroes share an apartment in a city where there is no crime. How do you fill the days? Taking cues from sketch comedy, farce and a bit of Abbott and Costello style verbal antics, the emphasis is on jokes and goofiness. ... full review

#SkipItLA Meanwhile Back at the Super Lair has some good one-liners and some witty banter, but as whole it doesn’t have feet to stand on. This play relies on dated stereotypes - there are so many thrown into this show that some characters had to double-up - in lieu of actual character development. - Beleaguered and harangued shrink? Check! - Ironically named incompetent bad guys? Check! - Hard-nosed government employee who is won over by the plucky leads?

This show was basically a visit to the land of Bizarro with "Super Heroes" trying to find something to do in a town with no crime. The story seemed silly and pointless, with most of the characters wearing latex body suits with accessories to reflect their names: Rhino Man, Leopard Woman, The Human Fly and Silver Streak. On Friday, June 15, the cast included Ronald Auguste, Brendan Brandt, Robert Cicchini,Christopher Frontiereo, Jeff Kongs, Jade Sealey. Perhaps if you enjoy comic books, this would be a show for you. ... full review
