This is such a fun show! From the minute the lights went off, the audience was laughing out loud non-stop. It seemed as if at any given moment you forgot about the actors presence and truly believe it was the puppets making the jokes; that's how good the cast is! If you're looking to have a great time at the theater, this show is a must see. Such a shame it is such a short run this time around!
One note: To ALL the people I've noticed that tend to start making their way out as soon as the show finishes and before the cast comes back to greet the audience: STOP IT! It is RUDE to the rest of the audience & to the cast of actors that has just entertained you for the past 2.5hrs. The least you can do is show your appreciation for their hard work. Giving them a well-deserved round of applause equals saying Thank You!
Bonus: I ran into half of the cast while on the Metro on my way back home last night. They were all very polite and energetic. Kudos!
