CHRISTINE DEITNER certified reviewer July 07, 2019
This was a delightful surprise. I honestly don't like reading too much about shows before I see them and initially feared we were going to be asked to watch an actress portraying Olivia Wilde in one form or another. What we got was a witty take on the apocalypse that pokes fun at celebrity while it celebrates ... full review

This show was awesome! Matt Robinson has written a brilliant and funny script. The cast had great chemistry with one another and they were hilarious. Great direction and blocking as well. I loved this clever, funny show and am so glad it one best comedy! It's a must see!... full review

A clever, fun little Fringey Fringe show (yes, that is now an adjective) that that has a great time lampooning politics, religion, celebrity worship, and theatre. ... full review

An engaging post-apocalyptic tale that overall works well. A different sort of experience from Matt Robinson that takes the audience on a strange, different sort of ride to a great destination. Even if it has a few bumps along the way.... full review

Fan's of veteran Hollywood Fringe producer, director, and writer Matthew Robinson's passed shows might see this campy farce romp as a departure. Fans of dystopian apocalypse tropes will revel. Fun, in tune with celebrity culture, and occasionally quite silly, the show is a nice romp for the sci-fi nerd in all of us. As with the film "Idiocracy" (2006), the what-if's may sound ridiculous and absurd. But with where we are now in society, in current politics, and in the increasing rise of celebrity culture, you may be laughing a lot less at the absurdity but laughing because–if we don't–we might cry. ... full review

This was a lot of fun. Very clever. I'm not usually a fan of plays about acting, but I thought this took the trope and really turned it on its head in a fantastic way. ... full review

Lots of fun! What happens when centuries from now we've started worshipping celebrities like deities? (Or are we doing that already...?)... full review

Just plain fun! The humor is especially great for people who have lived in LA too long. The cast is ticghtly-knit, and it shows in their performances, and there's jokes for every sensibility--raunchy, punny, dry, sarcastic, everyone. And all of it fits in a well-built sci-fi world. ... full review

My favourite show of this year's Fringe so far. Witty, intelligent, hilarious satire on our star loving culture and the creative process of theater, with winks to the Fringe festival itself.... full review
