I cannot recommend enough that you take this whimsical, hilarious, harrowing, and heartbreaking journey into the dark heart of the American South with your conductor, the incomparable Dandy Darkly - a master storyteller that will delight with sordid tales of terror and transformation! Like a Goth-infused, woke Prairie Home Companion on drugs, this is a must-see show.... full review

In Dandy Darkly’s All Aboard!, it’s better if you don’t know exactly what you’re getting into when hopping on board Dandy’s story train. He’s a master in the oral tradition of storytelling and creates vivid characters and situations which, in the flick of a phrase, instantly turn into something for more insidious. Each story he tells is better than the last and he weaves what appear to be disjointed tales into a seamless and exciting fabric. I was reminded of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman more than once. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED... full review

Pure storytellers are a rare breed, and Dandy Darkly is one of the best, reminiscent of one of my favorites from the Renaissance Faire, the late Mark Lewis.  He has won countless awards from fringes worldwide, and he showed why during this non-stop southern gothic tale.  He controlled the audience from start to finish, keeping them engaged and entranced in every word he spoke.  This show was truly a treat.... full review

Dandy Darkly is seriously one of the most unique entertainers out there, and his one-man show is absolutely thrilling, laugh-out-loud hilarious, and utterly haunting at the same time. Blending all the horrors of today's world into a comical, gothic fantasia, "All Aboard" is a fast-paced tour-de-force performance that is simply.... indescribable -- which makes for that rare, one-of-a-kind experience that leaves you on a complete high, wondering what the fuck you just saw (and why you don't see enough original entertainment like this). I'm still reflecting on it days later...... full review

I don't know exactly what I just saw, but that Dandy casts a spell y'all. It was like drag Faulkner set in the Margaret Atwood-a-verse. Poetic, passionate and profound.... full review

Dandy is a powerful storyteller. I was along for the ride (pun intended), and his charisma and energy really lit up the room. The story is wonderful, and the metaphors are rich.... full review
JEFF LAUB certified reviewer June 23, 2019
Dandy Darkly is a sheer force of performance, creating a storm of words that ensnares the audience into his world of stories. I can't say I always was able to follow what was happening in these stories, but Dandy Darkly's energy keeps the show moving, even during the times I didn't know what was happening.... full review
RONALD MEEK certified reviewer June 23, 2019
Dandy’s performance in “All Aboard!” was a spectacle to behold. By his indefatigable passion alone he holds his audience enraptured, but his vivid storytelling is what should bring audiences back in droves. Dandy paints a surrealist picture in audience’s minds of a world dripping with the tragic irony of reality.... full review
