“Wonderful Show,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We were looking for a show to see while we were in NYC and I saw that Zachary Levi was in this production. I loved the TV show "Chuck" and thought this might be a fun show... it was!!! My wife never watched "Chuck" so the connection meant nothing to her so her reaction of "I would pay to see that again" should let you know that there was a whole lot of funny going on! The entire cast did a wonderful job from beginning to end. There are only seven actors on stage but they each play multiple roles pulling off costume changes on-stage while the audience attention is focused elsewhere. If you are looking for a megabuck production with special effects and fancy sets go see Phantom or Spider-Man, but if you are in the mood for musical comedy with an irreverent flair performed by some extremely creative actors then this is the show you want!!!

“Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

We went to the show on the 23rd of December and it was enjoyable. Some of the humour was perhaps not for all audiences (it gets pretty crude at some points), but overall it was very good. After seeing Zachary Levi on his NBC show, "Chuck", I was surprised/impressed to see/hear how well he could sing!

It wasn't a huge production, but they did a good job with what resources they had available to them. Overall it was a fun and enjoyable production!

At the end of the show, the actors came out and signed autographs and mingled with those who stuck around to see them. Kudos to Zachary Levi who stayed until every last person (99% women ;) ) in line had a photo with him - Nice guy! (he must have been frozen!)

“Loved this show.”

Funny, small cast but very entertaining. A couple meets for a blind date. The actors handle multiple roles creatively.

What an absolute find this show was, I don’t think I have laughed so much for years. A cast of 7 very talented actors and a magnificent band made this a very memorable night.

We loved the show! Wish it wasn't going off Broadway! Our family thought it was wonderful and laughed the entire time.
