MARTIN RODRIGUEZ certified reviewer June 09, 2019
There is something very special about a show when you know and can tell that someone has poured their heart and soul into it. This show was one of those experiences. This show had comedy, spectacle, ass-kicking, but most importantly heart. Whether you are a fan of superheroes or not (but why wouldn't you be?), do yourself a favor and see Tattered Capes. You won't regret it. ... full review

Tremendous fun and action packed! This super hero comedy showcases truly terrifying consequences of toxic masculinity. Way to make a statement hidden inside Pow! Wham! And Kaboom! ... full review

This show encapsulates all the best parts of Stan Lee’s storytelling vision. Lee once said: “Just because you have superpowers, that doesn’t mean your love life would be perfect. I don’t think superpowers automatically means there won’t be any personality problems, family problems or even money problems. I just tried to write characters who are human beings who also have superpowers.” While there’s isn’t time spent on familial or fiscal aspects of these characters’ lives, the fantastically dynamic, interpersonal story that Greg Crafts has fashioned with these (literally) colorful and wonderfully diverse characters REALLY hits the mark.... full review
GREG MACHLIN certified reviewer June 10, 2019
One of the most successfully ambitious Fringe shows I've seen in years! Writer Greg Crafts and director Corey Lynn Howe--along with great choreography/fight choreography by Soda Persi--craft a piece of superhero pop art for the ages while telling a timely story of gender equality and toxic masculinity that still manages to be a lot of fun. The play's story is extremely well-crafted (no pun intended), but I can't reveal much of it without spoiling some fun twists. ... full review

Theatre Unleashed has earned its reputation for consistently delivering Fringe hits, and this show does not deviate from that pattern.  It was one of our Most Anticipated shows of HFF19, and was a truly different type of Fringe show for TU, proving that there is nothing they cannot do.... full review

Every single or married woman needs to see this. Everyone who wants to fit in needs to see this. Everyone who loves sneering shadowy bad guys needs to see this. Everyone who loves the action, SFX and special fx of the 60’s style Batman series needs to see this.... full review
