SO much fun!! I've only seen, like, maybe five episodes of BUFFY ever and I force-watched a scene from TWILIGHT so I could write a parody scene years ago, but this great musical works even if you don't intimately know the characters from these shows (it's a bonus if you do!). With a fantastic cast of great actors and voices, great fight choreography, a funny book and lyrics, and very specific and funny direction, BKE is a must-see for a good uber-Fringy time!... full review

I liked the energy and music. The show is self-aware of it's fan fiction roots and doesn't shy away from it. As a Buffy fan, I liked the Buffy/Dawn song the most because it was a good balance of commentary on the show and saying something new rather than some other moments that felt like rehashing of familiar territory. The fight scenes were exciting, for the size of the space! ... full review

It had me laughing through the entire hour. Taking iconic characters and portraying them as their most base emotions makes for great encounters between the two worlds. The music is fun and fast keeping the musical running through at a great pace and the lyrics have jokes and double meanings throughout that make you laugh later. A great show to see if you want to have a fun night out.... full review

Really fun book & score by Laura Wiley, and a smashing opening number with comically-choreographed fight sequences.

This show is a great time! I want the soundtrack. If you're not a Twilight or Buffy fan you'll love the rocking score and amazing cast. If you are a fan, you'll be grinning from ear to ear. ... full review

written, directed, produced by Laura Wiley, "Buffy Kills Edward" hits all the sweet spots when it comes to franchise parody. it became clear die-hard fans of both series were in the crowd, as many jokes landed and landed hard. but even for a complete non-fan of Twilight and somewhat-fan of Buffy like myself, the commitment and comedic timing of the charming cast will be sure to put a smile on your face. stand-outs include Robison as the oft-ignored sidekick Xander/over-sexed werewolf Jacob, and a couple other surprise roles. his clear and specific take on each character is delightful and keeps you looking out for when he'll pop up on stage again. Mestemacher and Berg, as Bella and Buffy respectively, bring wit and charm to their characte... full review

Buffy Kills Edward is so much fun to watch!! It's very cleverly written and all of the performers seem like they're having a great time on stage. The opening number is super upbeat and starts off the show with such a fun energy!! Definitely a show to see!... full review

A super fun show for fanboys and girls and normal people, too! While it's definitely way more entertaining if you understand the references, this show is also silly enough with enough badass performers crushing their vocals that non-Buffy/Twilight folks can still have a good time. The show is high energy start to finish, immersing the audience in a carnivalesque atmosphere of fun. Every actor is perfectly cast (and cast in multiple roles, which services the comedy beautifully) and lampoons the source material with aplomb. I have to say, Corrine's Bella was uncanny (though K.Stew never had half that stage presence) and she had me in stitches. Sherry's Buffy was spot on with snark, too. With excellent vocal performers and comedians alike, this... full review

Fringe is about experimentation. This is an experiment and the results are an amazing combination of the Buffy and Twilight universes. Buffy the Vampire and her crew come across Edward and the Twilight crew and what happens is a glorious battle of one franchise versus another. You can tell that they are fans due to the hilariously pointed out plot holes and trivia that were in the show. This had me smiling and laughing through the whole show to the point where my face hurt. It’s that good. This is a musical and they deliver some great and funny songs that will leave your eyes tearing. This takes place at the Three Clubs, if you’ve been there, you know how small the stage is, so huge props for the fight scenes that took place on that stage... full review
