Review: Blast Off Your Weekend With TRUMP IN SPACE on Friday Nights at Second City in HollywoodReview: Blast Off Your Weekend With TRUMP IN SPACE on Friday Nights at Second City in Hollywood
by Shari Barrett - Mar 2, 2018

TRUMP IN SPACE is a combination of Star Trek and Avenue Q meeting Trump, a musical battle of good vs. bad and ideals vs. opportunism, with tons of sex and profanity thrown in for fun. This original musical is an epic space adventure filled with all the sci-fi tropes we love and all the politics we love to hate. Taking place four hundred years in the future when the fallout of the Trump administration has left humans stranded without a planet, Captain Natasha Trump (Gillian Bellinger, writer of the script and lyrics), a direct descendant of President Donald J. Trump, races to find humanity a new planet called Polaris 4 to call home. (more...)

BWW Review: Robot Teammate's New Musical TURBULENCE! covers Fun-Loving Comic Territory
by Ellen Dostal - Jun 11, 2017

Set to an upbeat '80s-style pop rock score, TURBULENCE! is a screwball mash-up of Friday night SyFy comedy classics and Saturday morning cartoons with colorful characters and bright, energetic choreography. Two musical departures - a hokey country 'Hoedown Throwdown' style number (priceless) and a beautiful a cappella choral piece add variety. The friendly rough-and-tumble nature of the work is a good fit for those looking for an escape from the more cynical/slit-your-wrists drama one often finds at the Fringe. This is comical territory, bold and fun-loving. It won't tax any brain cells but the rowdy good time it delivers is all you need. (more...)
