What I liked

I left the theatre elated, inspired, confused, energized, irritated… This show inspires a kaleidoscope of emotions. I’m thrilled they got extended, because I cannot wait to see those idiots again!

What I didn't like

To be clear, this show is not for everyone. That said, everyone should see it.

My overall impression

You’d be hard-pressed to find this kind of stupidity anywhere else. And I mean that in the best way. Mil Grus is one part performance art, two parts improv comedy, and five parts avant-garde nonesense. And I loved every single one of those parts! The entire bouffon ensemble are as irresistibly funny as they are repulsive. They have the audience in the palm of their hand the whole time. Like a fickle feline, they push us away and pull us back in on a whim. A well devised show, excellently performed, and exquisitely weird. The Fringe community will be talking about this one for a long time.
