Review from Mike Kavanaugh

Amusing and visually stunning, the play is very reminiscent of WARP, "the world's first science fiction epic-adventure play in serial form," first staged by the Organic Theater WAY BACK in 1971.

Quotes & Highlights

Endearing performances and cheap-but-imaginative stage effects win the day … resistance to this show’s many charms is futile. —Chicago Tribune (three stars)

The endlessly inventive design team serves up a kaleidoscopic collage … if blasting rayguns, ass-kicking chicks and bug-eyed monsters dying in spasms like cockroaches is your cup of Cassiopeia, this is your kind of entertainment. —Windy City Times

An action-packed, laughed-filled space romp … the script wonderfully exploits the cornier aspects of nearly all sci-fi stories. Despite the satirical nature of the play, Blixt has the cast looking like action stars and the combat scenes are anything but corny. —Showbiz Chicago

This show is the good kind of cheese—a campy, kooky space romp with a kickin’ grrrrrl power protagonist, effective use of multimedia screens, scale model space toys, and puppetry with creepy manipulators in head to toe black spandex. Highly recommended! —ChiIL Mama

It’s an out-of-this-world spectacle … _Fight Girl Battle World could populate Chicago as a late night cult classic. —Chicago Theater Beat

Anyone looking for a good time just needs to aim for Fight Girl Battle World and then stay on target. —Centerstage (Must See show)
