Pazakis' most witty script cleverly utilizes pop songs to advance the narrative of the Netflix cult phenom Stranger Things. Nathan Moore expertly directs his cast of enthusiastic triple-threats at a rousing, non-stop pace with only enough time for deserved applause to die down before the next song or comedy bit tickles your funny bones.
