The theater is small, every seat has a great view.

Right across the railroad tracks is Downtown Fullerton. Many fabulous restaurants within walking distance. We ate at the Greek place, left my car parked in that lot then just walked over the bridge to the theater. So convenient.

Wonderful Venue-SIMPLY AWFUL SHOW!!
Amatuerish in every way. We walked out after 45 minutes (so we gave it a chance). The lyrics are offensive, which I wouldn't have minded, but they were NOT clever either.

While this in no way reflects on...continued

Had a great time. The satire was over the top and wonderful. I especially liked the two theater concept. Would return to the Maverick at the next opportunity!

Quotes & Highlights

“The songs are cheerfully loopy! …like you’d find in any Saturday Night Live Skit…”, “Making the biggest splash are the set and special effects.” —Backstage West
“Ingenious…hilarious…a silly, goofball-funny show that both tips its hat to and derides the campy genre of monster movies…” —OC Register

Description

The producer bills this show as “So gigantic in scope, it requires two theaters to stage it! Not since Jerry Springer The Opera has the stage exploded with such mighty fury, such massive spectacle!”  The theater owners say, “If you come expecting a play with substance, you won’t get your money back.”

Music, lyrics and book by Jeremy Gable

Based on the concept by director Brian Newell
