JANIELLE TAYLOR certified reviewer June 23, 2014
I went on the opening weekend and I didn't know what to expect. The show was HILARIOUS! Phillip Jordan did an awesome job as the Jasmine character. And, Tom DeTrinis was so damn funny as the Betsy character! The fur corset?! RI-DICULOUS!!! HA!!! I'd be here all day trying to name everyone, but the entire cast was wonderful! Great job Brooke!!... full review

As usual, not only does 30MM not disappoint, it far exceeds expectation! The movie adaptations are hilarious and clever, as are the songs. Brooke and Tom continue to cast talent on par with their own, which makes for a powerhouse performance from all involved. A must see! And the band rocks!! ... full review

GREAT show!! So, *so* funny. I've seen a lot of 30MM productions, and this was one of my favorite pairings. The cast is across the board hilarious; there's a metric fuck-ton of talent in this group. Show is tight and polished and does both smart-funny and stupid-funny perfectly, which is exactly what you want when you're paying homage to movies where the human race is alternately threatened by aliens and a very tiny monkey. Highly recommended.... full review

A hilarious show that is tight, crisp, and brimming with talent. My first time seeing a 30MM production, and it won't be my last. Every aspect of the 1 hour show was produced spectacularly, with knowing tongue-in-cheek humor with just the right cast to pull off all the jokes with aplomb. The entire audience was in stitches, and I can only imagine the word of mouth that will continue to bring audiences back in droves. A must see at Fringe. ... full review

It's kind of embarrassing to admit, but I went into this double feature having near seen either of the films they were spoofing. I only mention this because, even as an outsider not privy to all the inside jokes, this show is HILARIOUS! Tom Detrinis as Betsy the monkey is comic genius! His Blanche De Bois primate starlet is pure gold. JP Karliak is strong, funny, a born star. Chaz Bono has great stage presence and a believable authority as the President. Thomas Hobson does a spot on spoof of Will Smith. Julianne Dowler is a fully committed dog. Everyone in the show has great comic timing and is 110% committed to what they are doing, with great voices, full on energy -- there's not a weak link up there on stage. They all shine complet... full review

With 30 Minute Musicals, you're in for a hilarious sprint through movies that would otherwise probably never get the Broadway treatment. It's funny. It's catchy. And it's FAST. Perhaps the best moments occur when show deviates from the established plot to provide a gag, narrative shortcut, or some wry commentary (their Independence Day's dialogue-free opening scene is brilliant in its simplicity). Tom DeTrinis and Brooke Seguin have once gain assembled a wonderful cast, but they also provide several of the show's most memorable characters (Tom as the Outbreak monkey is inspired and Brooke will make sure you never look at Donald Sutherland the same way again). The whole thing is a just a ton of fun and I can't recommend it highly enough... full review

I had the honor and pleasure of seeing this with Ms Janielle. I can co-sign all of her comments. I can also add riveting monkey attire, dynamic and unique women, superb comedic timing, sarcasm and questionable foreshadowing. It's everything a short musical should be. If you want to laugh until it hurts and you cry, then you have to check out 30 Minute Musicals. You have to trust me, I flew all the way from Chicago to see it and I was not disappointed. I will definitely be checking out the next installment.... full review
