Company: The Rest of Us
Show: An Odyssey Backwards and in Heels
Venue: Minnsky Theatre

I know who I want to take me home

Great musical numbers--a lot went into those and it really shows. As "Odyssey" as "O Brother, Where Art Thou" would have been with a 45 minute run time--fun if you like that sort of thing, and I do. Great messaging on honesty and friendship; clever messaging on allies preventing sexual assault. Well done.

Company: Fearless Comedy Productions
Show: Deep in The 100 Acre Woods: A "Pooh"-dunnit?
Venue: Minnsky Theatre

Their Pooh doesn't stink

The show is worth seeing for their thoughtfully-constructed and -performed characterizations. Probably not what you imagined Tigger or Eeyore or Rabbit or Piglet looking like as a person, but then they're doing their thing and you can totally see it. I didn't love the tonal shift at the end; maybe I just don't know enough about film noir to accept it. The script is pretty sly, when it's not being dark.

Company: Goof Goof
Show: (a) Normal Theatre Play
Venue: Strike Theater

What do you do if somebody gets the answers wrong?

I'm not kidding when I say that this show is the one I enjoy thinking about the most afterward. Minimalist. Funny, touching. Surprisingly physical, subtle, and original. I know "it's the perfect play for right now" is a joke, but maybe it's not, you know? You probably know. I found this more thoughtful start to finish than I had expected. Really enjoyable.

Company: Grand Island Theatre
Show: Hamlet, but Hamlet's a Chicken
Venue: Minnsky Theatre

Who are you calling chicken

Spoiler that doesn't spoil much: it's "Shakespeare, but [thing different]" all the way down. I think you'll get more out of it if you refresh your memory on what happens in Hamlet, but I don't know how you could fail to enjoy it regardless. The Shakespeare is solid, the rest is silence. Just kidding, that's a Hamlet joke, the rest is a firehose of energy and creativity.

Show: BurnOut County
Venue: Minnsky Theatre

It was meth

Surprisingly touching. Unsurprisingly funny. As in, it should not surprise you that it is funny. You should go see it. Probably. Most likely.
