The cast's energy & voices are very good. But this truly is the 'theater of the absurd, which was popular decades ago--some of the bantering dialogue is whimsical or even... continued

The play had a lot of energy and was well conceived and executed. I think a familiarity with Ionesco's plays helps a lot, but it's fun even without it.

You just have to go with it. It's a little weird and ultimately doesn't cohere - but if you're a theater lover you will like it even if you don't love it. My husband was hoping to leave at intermission but my son found it amusing in an offbeat way.

Ionescapade was a fun show/vaudeville. I enjoyed the show - the musical numbers and skits were enjoyable. Fun evening at the Odyssey.

An absolute delight for the audience. Talented cast. This is the Bald Soprano with hair...the Rhinoceros with an ear to ear grin. Ionesco would
be proud.

A lot more entertaining and humorous then I was expecting. The singing was great. The actors were great. Only thing is that the show ran a little long--2 hours with intermission.

The cast tried hard, but the play as a whole is a lot of running around without adding up to much. The songs are ok-but sometimes, even though it is a small space, it... continued

Difficult to understand the point. I feel that I was robbed of a couple hours of my life. Forgetable as soon a one leaves the theatre

Awesome! Go see it! It is very fun and indeed "Theatre of the Absurd" Yet, the message comes through the fun. The actors are all so amazingly talented and gave it their all. It seemed like they were also having fun. You will!
