Everyone in the family really enjoyed the show! It was fast paced, the humor was accessible to and appropriate for all, and the tricks were wonderful!

Great family event. My teenage son, elementary school daughter, mother , husband and I really enjoyed it. It's well done, skillful, great parody without taking itself too seriously. Would watch it again.

Description

The first independently produced full-length theater show by NANDA!!

Teeming with juggling, acrobatics and martial arts, The Jacket combines comedy and irreverent pop-culture references for an entirely original performance.

The show features a cutting edge cinematic soundtrack, as well as tightly integrated video projections and digital animations—all the while borrowing from circus, vaudeville, and classic western theater traditions.

This panoply of stylistic influences is propelled by an epic story, replete with ancient mystics, kung-faux ninjas, robots, lasers, and a myriad of other action movie oddities.

The result is not only a show that is truly unique, but one that strongly resonates with all of the mainstream entertainment phenomena that it deftly parodies.
