Dr. Who and zombies?
The Storybook Guide to Zombie Survival
KC Fringe Festival
I have to admit, I was avoiding this show. I'm glad I finally saw it. While it does deal with the subject matter of zombies, it's clear that the tastes of these performers follows my own.
After all, our intrepid heroes are braving the dangers of hordes of zombies to pick up a collection of Dr. Who audio books to make their escape from the zombie apocalypse more enjoyable. It's nice to know some people have their priorities straight.
The script for this show is great, and while the actors had the scripts available for reference, it was not reader's theatre. My only real criticism of the show is about the storytelling. There were times when the story was rushed through, not giving the audience time to absorb or react to what was said. This problem was only an occasional one, and didn't really detract from the overall production.
The talk-back session about surviving a zombie apocalypse was equally fun. Silly questions with equally silly answers, with which weapons were the best to take along and the references for those answers. These guys know their stuff.
I didn't really expect to enjoy this show. I was pleasantly surprised that I really did like it.
