Review by BRETT MOORE

What I liked

Great energy, solid sense of humor, hugely informative, and presented with great flair and well interspersed jokes and references. Great choices of video clips and artwork… I mean, the amount of research that clearly went into this show and the amount of love Mandall has for the topic is positively STUNNING.

What I didn't like

The last song wasn’t quite up to the quality of the others he performed. Other than that… I guess keep practicing the theremin? The thing takes forever to master, so it’s not much of a criticism.

My overall impression

I came in a little skeptical based on the description, and I left completely delighted. Informative, funny, charming, and relevant, James Mandall does a great job enthralling an all-ages audience with the story of science fiction, with some original songs on the topic sprinkled in for good measure.. Great fun, highly recommend for sc-fi fans!
