The new musical from StarKid Productions continues with their comedic foul-language storylines and gives an amazing female-centric storyline lead by veterans Lauren Lopez and Meredith Stepien.

Back when the human race was new, a tribe is lead by Jemilla (Stepien). Though she learns of lies told to the tribe by their former leader Molag (Lauren Walker), she is hesitant toward new ideas and the affect they could have on the population. Zazzalil (Lopez) wants to advance the tribe with these ideas and inventions.

For many shows now, Lopez and Stepien have been featured players and giving them the chance to take the lead here is welcomed. They both have strong comedic sides that complement each other well and Lopez provides the best in-song performance that became a meme.

Final say: A light show that gives StarKid a new direction. ★★★★☆
