I finally got a chance to see this guy, and now I know what all the fuss is about. Funny, funny show.

This was a blast. There was a packed crowd and eveyone seemed to be having a great time. Very funny premise, and great performances.

How does he come up with this stuff? This was a lot of fun. Educational too.

Death Camp Diaries

I was worried that I was going to be propelled into an explosion of sadness and tears. I ended up feeling the horror and sadness of the Holocaust in a quieter way that will likely have me still pondering its questions for some time.

Parry Hotter and the Half-Drunk Twins
What fun by Kristi Lawless
Rating: 4 kitties
This was a blast. It does help if you know the series. Like another reviewer said, I wish he would not have gone down some of the unrelated paths, but it was still a great time.

Gave me a personal glimpse into a world different from what I have experienced. I thought there was a good mix of stories that were moving, sad, and funny.

The Curse of Yig
Spooky by Kristi Lawless

It started slow, but I realized they needed to do this to set the stage. Once things ramped up, I was on the edge of my seat.

Phi Alpha Gamma

Nice job. Very gripping--especially scenes from prison.

The concept was cool, but it needs some fine tuning.

You /Provoke /Me
Maybe it's me by Kristi Lawless
Rating: 3 kitties
I don't know much about dance, so that skews my thoughts on this show. Obviously, they have a lot of energy and are talented, but I didn't understand what most of it meant.

Bedroom Stories
Spooky sometimes by Kristi Lawless
Rating: 3 kitties
When I could figure out what was going on, there were some moving and interesting parts to this show. I liked his use of light/shadows and also the evocative music. Some parts just went on too long, in my opinion.

Agamemnon
Funny by Kristi Lawless

The first part of this show had me sitting in my chair, giggling. It seemed to fall apart about halfway through, but I still enjoyed it. Loved the ghost.

Schrödinger's Cat Must Die!
Nice! by Kristi Lawless
Rating: 3 kitties
I enjoyed this show, but I would have preferred more cool experiments and fewer antics. Also, please switch out some of the uncomfortable 'student-chairs' with regular ones...even folding chairs would have been better.
