Sure, war is hell, but when author Kurt Vonnegut is telling the tale, it can be hellishly funny, too. Perhaps the greatest American humorist since Twain, Vonnegut (Cat's Cradle, Breakfast of Champions) is at his absolutely best in Slaughterhouse-Five, recounting the horrors of World War II with sly wit, sci-fi zaniness and the profound insight of a survivor and veteran. Now the Custom Made Theatre Co. brings this modern literary masterpiece to the stage with a brilliant adaptation by Oscar winner Eric Simonson. An ensemble of 11 actors plays dozens of characters in a production enriched with Vonnegut-inspired animations and an evocative set. Deeply hilarious from the get-go -- and increasingly moving as the story progresses -- Slaughterhouse-Five is one play you won't soon forget. Learn More

I found the performance absorbing and funny. All four actors were strong. I especially enjoyed each actor playing multiple roles. Not so common in comedy, Liz grew, transformed and expressed what she had learned. The message was conveyed with a light touch. Sweet!

The production was pretty terrible. I felt like I was at a neighbor's middle school play. There were some bright spots and short laughs, but I would not recommend this show. It's a shame because I love David and Amy Sedaris' work.
