Chicago Theatre Addict - Highly Recommended

"... Thankfully, this quintet of performers (including Matthew Van Colton, Brandon Dahlquist, Lauren Dowden, Erica Elam and Tim Sniffen) works exceedingly well together. All capable singers, they know how to take a nonsense idea and turn it into a witty song with a beginning, middle and end. And they frequently pitch in to build on a musical idea, oftentimes in three part harmony."

Chicago Stage Standard - Recommended

"... Matthew Loren Cohen is the fabulous Creator and Music Director and even did the entire Prologue for the newly created musical. I am amazed at the talent pool here. He has to follow what the actors on stage are going to do next to create the songs they are performing, which they just made up during intermission. Amanda Blake Davis directs this great cast of characters."

Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...Each performance will be a new show as they work off the sheets that are turned in by the audience members and each of these talented cast members shine in what they do. In tonight’s rendition, the five songs were “It’s All About Nana”, “Dinkey Donkey Song”, “I Have A Dream, But It’s A Stupid One”,”I’m My Own Sugar Daddy” and “No One Can Spoil This Investigation”, which by the way, was the chosen winner and refers to the mystery involving Jean Benet Ramsey. The musical they put on for the second half , while it made light of a terrible incident in history was a delight to watch and filled with lots of humor."
