Killer Joe was the darkest play I have ever seen. Not for the faint of heart. Incredibly well acted by all on stage. I would go out to see any play staged by Zero Point Theater.

This was a great surprise. The cast was excellent and worked well together. We were completely entertained. Good luck in Worcester!

A great story not well presented. Some of the cast had extreme talent while one of the main characters was so weak that it distracted from the entire effect of the play. My expectations were high after seeing the movie and I was very disappointed!

It was very entertaining and engrossing. Me and my partner loved it. The story and the performance kept us engaged throughout the time. Kudos to everyone associated with the show.

very enjoyable, I think the characters were perfectly cast. We really had no idea what to expect from the play. They made the situation very believable and it's not hard to imagine that this stuff/way of life goes on in real life in our country...continued

All 4 of us enjoyed the play. All the actors did a great job. Parking is free and right there which is a bonus. We will be checking back to find another play to go to.

Fans of Tracy Letts (August: Osage County) as well at Martin Mcdonagh should see this dark, sometimes-creepy comedy, served strangely well by the intimacy of the Arsenal's blackbox.

That being said, there is violence, mostly related to food, and...continued

Very snowy that night, so we were two of nine people in the audience. Really interesting experience because of that.
Play was good, actors were terrific even with a few prop malfunctions, and stage combat was impressive. I'd recommend it to anyone...continued
