Fun, ridiculous, and heartfelt, Truly Outrageous is a true treat! Jim Blanchette directs with confident know-how, Brandie June produces this dazzling show with intelligent expertise, the cast is firing on all cylinders, and Erica Palay and Rebecca McGlynn’s production design work on this show is nothing short of amazing. Their designs are as spirited as the the ensemble, both being so colorful that it's hard to look away from them as they dazzle and dazzle. The writing, the acting, the entire production, the direction, and the flow of this show make Truly Outrageous: An Unofficial Jem and the Holograms Musical Parody a Top Ten of the 2023 Los Angeles Fringe Festival! ... full review

Even if you go in knowing nothing about the source material (like myself), Truly Outrageous is a laugh-out-loud, glittery good time! A musical romp with smart parodies of our favorite 80s tropes that will totally leave you humming.... full review
CHRISTOPHER GAUNTT certified reviewer June 19, 2023
Very, very funny. It was sassy and satirical. Great concept, great script, and some great casting choices. Very good for a fringe show and can see this having a bright future with some work-shopping. Absolutely worth seeing if you get a chance.... full review
