ENCI BOX certified reviewer June 12, 2014
This show from the The Visceral Company was one of my favorites at the Hollywood Fringe Festival so far, next to Chtlin' Blues!

If you love 1950s sci-fi B-movies, this musical is for you. If you hate 1950s sci-fi B-movies, this musical is for you. If you’re sick of zombies, this musical is definitely for you.

The Visceral Company takes on musical theatre and rides it all the way to success in a chipper interplanetary musical even non-musical theatre folks will love! Forget any idea of skipping it because it is a hilariously fun send-up of the 1950s and sci-fi B-movies directed by Dan Spurgeon and choreographed by Anna Safar with spot-on cheeseball precision, featuring a cast that knows how to play the comedy without ruining it. Plus, it’s the only place you’ll find Zombina, an “intergalactic strumpet on the prowl” and her chorus of dancing Zombettes, searching for earth men to repopulate their planet. Picture a shapely Wagnerian operatic powerhouse who looks like a cross between the 1940s glam version of Eve Arden (she could use that wig as a ... full review
