I cannot recall the last time I saw a more energetic, lively play. Was fortunate enough to catch this on closing night, and I had so much energy from the play, I felt the need to walk an hour home. Richard was fantastic, way more laughs than I was...continued

Awesome. Saw this before the remount and it was good, but now the show has blossomed into the rowdy, rollicking ride it wanted to be. Garcia rocks the title role, adding humor and connecting with the audience in a whole new way. Seems like...continued

The show began with an exciting preshow scene that warmed me up for the thrilling show I was about to see. I was engaged throughout the show and on the edge of my seat. a fast paced, exhilarating adventure, not to be missed!

Totally dug this one! Fast paced, high energy, funny, dark and dirty. The acting is awesome, the soundtrack is classic 70s rock, the fights are bloody, and the drinks were cheap. Me and my girlfriend had a blast.
