Reviews for "Bayside! The Musical!"
"The actress who played Jessie, Amanda Nicholas, was the best of the bunch and had me gasping for air between all the caffeine pill antics and her extended butterly interpretive dance."
--Yeah Right Blog
"Amanda Nicholas is a standout. [She] demonstrates a knack for physical humor that far surpasses the likes of the current cast of SNL." -- Theater Life
"Amanda Nicholas was on point!"
"Kuddos to everyone in the cast for nailing their parodies, but Amanda Nicholas and Seth Blum are especially fun to watch. Playing multiple characters, genders and species, their frantic costume changes are hysterical...Highbrow brilliant... This is the Saved by the Bell we've been waiting for."
--Forces of Geek
"Attending 'Bayside!' can seem like a midnight screening of 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'."
--New York Times
"Bayside! The Musical! will have you rolling in the aisles"
"Bayside! The Musical!, is the new giant-cell phone on the block of New York's theater scene."
Reviews for "Showgirls! The Musical!"
"We are reliving so much of the show in our head and still laughing about it! Yup, we need to see it again!"
-- Perez Hilton
"So-bad-it's-good movie becomes so-worse-it's-better musical."
-- NY Times
"Particular praise goes to the outstanding cast; each person on the Kraine’s tiny stage is thrusting themselves at their task with full force. An ensemble of comedic talent, most of whom take on multiple roles, wrings the script of every last laugh and probably earns a few that weren’t there to begin with...Live theater is a delight to behold when executed by performers with this much dedication, skill, and dare I say sex appeal. There are few other places in the city where you’d be laughing this hard for that price, and nowhere that would also provide partial nudity. It’s bad taste at its best."
"One of the biggest compliments I can give Showgirls! The Musical! is that it makes the prospect of re-watching Showgirls an enjoyable thing. It manages to turn a movie that was simply bad, into something hilarious. The people who see Showgirls! The Musical! will become part of an exclusive group that laugh inappropriately at everything in the original film. Trust me when I say you want to be a part of this group. We’re having all the fun."
-- Adam's World
"It’s an already amusing, peculiar and raunchy film, but somehow the new off-off-Broadway Showgirls: The Musical! manages to make it an even more hilarious, inventive and twisted experience...Brought to the stage by MediumFace Productions, this first-run musical brings together an exceptionally talented cast of Broadway-caliber singers and dancers, most of whom pull off multiple characters spanning all manner of sexual versatility."
"This show contains all the elements you would expect from a parody of this worst/best movie ever: all the brilliant one liners, exaggerated versions of your favorite scenes, and even all the gratuitous nudity from the film. You’ll laugh a lot, and have a fun time."
-- Theater Online
"Showgirls: The Musical skewers the film head on in a crass, un-PC production that will make you piss yourself if you are not careful."
