Loud, Reptilian and Incredibly Entertaining...Knight and Brinegar have really tapped into the power of these myths.

HISSIFIT is a modern twist on an ancient story: the tale of Medusa and her Gorgon sisters...It’s the version that will make you feel like an underage kid in-the-know, someplace special, where something big is about to go down, earning bragging rights for years to come. Because, man, you were there. You saw it with your own two eyes. And it was SICK AF!

When writing the script, Knight, along with composer Dave Malloy, wanted to take into account exactly what the actors themselves felt about high school, growing up and the pressures that today’s teenagers encounter. It is this thoughtful consideration of the real, lived experiences of teenagers that makes “Don’t Stop Me” so successful.

In the show, students at a high school dance-a-thon find themselves pitted against a demonic DJ who transports them to memorable dance crazes throughout history. Eras range from a medieval times to the Wild West to a 1920s speakeasy. Meanwhile, the dance contestants must face their desires and weaknesses. Only one couple wins – and comes out alive.

If you love science, if you remember the Nintendo Entertainment System and associated chic, or if you have a tragic sense of life, you should come to the small barroom stage of the Parkside Lounge to see a small character fight for a great big cause...Congratulations to the makers of The Nanoman for making geeky knowledge very entertaining. The acting is joyous. Not as awkward as Little Shop of Horrors and with an ego smaller than Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the very tiny nano-hero breaks new ground.

This protracted, multi-act monologue is given no context whatsoever, beyond light costuming, and a few clues in the script. It began the play, and filled the air whilst sets were being changed. At first, you have no idea what is going on. It feels like a beat poem sans jazz backing. The actor, Ben Beckley, says some bizarre things about dancing, soda-streams and household appliances. He keeps talking about a birthday dance he has prepared for someone he loves. Levels of WTF rise beyond all reason. Then gradually you realize who the man before you is, and what he represents. And suddenly his bizarre aggression, and occasional bombasticism make sense, and he becomes beautiful.

Playwright Krista Knight, director Jess Chayes, and the Assembly theater ensemble have complete faith in every aspect of their wacked-out concept—their comedy stems from the organic merger of the bizarre elements on stage, not self-conscious jokes about the anachronism of it all.

Walden Theatre has captured that spirit of pathos all too well in their current production of Krista Knight’s Phantom Band. Sort of the result of what you’d get if you crossed The Breakfast Club with The Twilight Zone, a talented cast brings this heartfelt and at times heartbreaking story to life.
