Doused in zany frivolity, "Public Domain: The Musical" combines puppetry, totally unexpected characters, and seriously hooky melodies.... full review

This show is a well written, well acted, hilarious take on on the audition process and what it takes to become the star of a blockbuster animated film. It was surprising and delightful and I laughed the whole way through. If I had to summarize it into a handful of words I would say it is zany, clever, and a riot.... full review

Fun, clever, short, and hilarious! It has a little bit of everything: singing, dancing, puppets! The eye to detail from the clever turns of phrases in the music to the Disney touches on the costumes, everything works brilliantly. It's also only 30 minutes, I am going to see it again.... full review

There’s even a fun twist at the end. The performers were all-in with true-to-character earnestness that made their songs even funnier. The pacing was quick, the music up-tempo, and the lyrics groaningly good. Thank you for ... full review

Full writeup at The songs are all cute, but at times tastelessly cute. The performances are mixed, but your mileage may vary as the show is double cast. But you will be entertained, and in and out quick.... full review
