The newest musical from StarKid Productions brings a refreshing new take on the end of the world.
Paul (Jon Matteson) is an ordinary guy who hates musicals, but when a pandemic takes over the city of Hatchetfield, everyone starts becoming musical zombies. Now, Paul and his friends must avoid the apocalypse and not fall into the trap of the songs around them.
StarKid regulars Jaime Lyn Beatty, Lauren Lopez and Joey Richter continue to create hilarious characters and shine with their vocals. One of the best performances comes from Robert Manion during “Show Stoppin’ Number.”
As they have with past shows, StarKid combines great drama and comedy with relevant topics. There are lulls and you’ll feel the decline in energy, but the smart ending makes up for it.
Final say: You don’t have to like musicals to enjoy this. ★★★☆☆
