What I liked

There are many things to love about this play. The performances Especially are spectacular. By all members of the cast, to the level where I would hire them for my own short films. The combination of multimedia with the opening titles and ending credits worked seamlessly and helped immediately hooked the audience through comedy and was a very innovative way to bring them into the superhero genre. The costumes and set design were also very effective. I particularly enjoyed the TV set and the headphones.

What I didn't like

Honestly, I don’t think it could be improved. I tend to be very critical. The only comment I would make is for the opening titles to be a bit faster and the closing credits to run a few seconds slower because I missed a few of the jokes.

My overall impression

Fantastic, funny and great time. A very thoughtful satire of the superhero genre that keeps you on your toes.
