While the actors had talent and the play was well-produced and thoroughly rehearsed, it just wasn't good. The jokes were obvious and uninspired ("Miley Cyrus twerking is a sign of the apocalypse"? Really? Not original and not fresh) and the...continued

The venue is a bit hard to locate and parking is meter. The show is OK and could have been very entertaining but is over written and the second act falls apart. If about 30-40 minutes get cut and is done in a single act the show would work...continued

What a hilarious play! Very funny adult dialogue, cleverly written with really good acting. I enjoyed meeting everyone with the Enjoy Life Chicago! Black Professionals Social Group from meetup.com who came out too- it was a good time. Try to catch...continued

Noticeably excellent sound design, from the music choices pre and post-show to the plethora of supporting sound effects (often to comic effect). The actor portraying Colfax was quite a comedic find, successfully landing even the more juvenile...continued

I enjoyed the plot. The antagonist was fantastic, as were several of the supporting actors. However, the van Helsing siblings (especially her horrific accent were serious detractors).

A very silly parody of 1970s/1980s blaxploitation/sexploitation movies. What could be better?

I loved it. I took my 11 year-old son with me and I did not know that it was not appropriate for him. It was a little milder at the end. Please specify that it is for adults only. Other than that I really enjoyed it.

I liked the theater. It is small and quite intimate yet still the seats are not so close together that one would feel cramped. The play had many funny moments. With the exception of two of the actors, the acting was mediocre. The music/sound...continued

It was okay. I would say my biggest critique was the unevenness of the writing. A few jokes were pretty hilarious, and their comic timing executed quite well, but most of the time the jokes were sub-par or par at best.

I was pleasantly surprised. I am somewhat of a rookie when it comes to plays. I have been to a few recently, mostly in bigger venues. It seems like I got way more for my money because the actors in this smaller venue work way harder than the...continued

OK, is this a classic, taught drama? No. Is it campy and fun? Yes. The review is more for the whole, than the sum of its part. The plot could get really loose, but overall I had a great time. It's especially funny for those familiar with...continued
