Synopsis: Born of Sacred Fools "Serial Killers" a weekly event where five different episodic shows compete and are voted on by the audience to continue, this format has served as an incubator for Sacred Fools spawning multiple full length productions including this show.
First and foremost, let us start with what the show is. An outrageous, farcical out of this world adventure that exemplifies physical comedy and timing.
It pays homage and draws inspirations from such classics as, Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians, Clue, James Bond films, and The Most Dangerous Game.
If you are not a fan of ostentatious, cheesy and anachronistic entertainment, then this show might not be for you. Lucky for me, this was right up my ally.
The story begins in an airport where a plane sits for takeoff to beautiful sunny Curacao. World-famous movie star Mark Timmons (Jahmone Duhaney) is on his way to the next leg of the press tour for his brand new Hollywood blockbuster. He is accompanied by his wife Lydia Timmons (Anahi Bustillos) and "Twin Brother" Jacob Timmons (Ryan Coil) as well as Mark's new costar Millenial Youtube sensation Sienna Lordess (Kristyn Evelyn). The start of the show is filled with shenanigans brought to you by a supporting cast that expertly reminds you of the ridiculousness of each conversation. I could have watched the ensemble on the plane for the entire length of the show. Yet, this madness is broken by the foreshadowing appearance of the evilest of evil doers (eye patch and all), the mysteriously ill paralytic wife (crazy outfits and all), and a mad scientist bellhop (grungy red waistcoat and all).
Sound insane? It is. But, you do not want to miss the flight this show wants to take you on. Hilarious, fun, utterly ludicrous, while being a refreshing night of theatre brought to you by Sacred Fools.
You can always trust The Sacred Fools to present you with work of ingenious set design, construction, costuming, and tech. I would be remiss not to mention the ORIGINAL sound design and title song found above this very review.
