What I liked

The FULL PACKED room of happy kids and tired but patient parents enjoying this return of LIVE performance theater. Mr Malcolm was calm steady and just a great Staple in this show/ The Center of the Music Factory Universe. Of course the writing and overall talent of Matt Ritchey the winner of Several Hollywood Fringe awards over the years was obvious in this entertaining show

What I didn't like

At first seeing the Humanoids and their mouths moving felt odd to me but I believe it totally worked and this show proved Proof of Concept. This show needs to go on for a few more years.

My overall impression

Great Show ! The BEST show for younger audiences that I have ever seen in my years of attending the Hollywood Fringe Festival. Anyone and everyone with kids who support live theater should attend this wonderfully put together hour of entertainment with puppets. Older people like myself will appreciate the Nostalgia that comes to mind while watching this performance. Think Captain Kangaroo, The Banana Splits, HR Puffenstuff, Romper Room, and of course that Poppyseed Street. I must admit also that SNL Skit with Bill Hader and Seth McFarnlane with puppets popped into my head during the show.
