With an original script, music, and lyrics written by Will Bulka, David Krump, and William Stobb, Predator: The Musical parodies the innate elements of the (in)famous 1987 action filmPredator while presenting an alternate version of the film’s intentions, in which characters occasionally sing themselves into the afterlife while fighting a deadly, legendary creature from outer space.

"...This cheeky, intelligent adaptation of the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger action vehicle, Predator, has a lot going for it. David Krump, William Stobb, and Will Bulka's script picks up on the strong characters and lightning pacing that make the movie great while cleverly ribbing its thin plot and faulty logic. But after intermission the show becomes a survival mission of its own—a slog through clumsy fight scenes and back-to-back musical numbers."

"...I must admit many people in the audience seemed to be having a raucous good time. I think this must be attributed at least partially to the effects of alcohol and to hearing famous lines from the film. But a good parody must do more than simply reference its source material. It must find funny things about the material and illuminate them. This show fails to do that."
