In "Wild Women of Planet Wongo", the audience encounters a world of Amazonian warrior women and their alluring Queen who first meet men when two bumbling astronauts crash onto their purple and green planet. While the guys think they've discovered paradise, hilarity ensues as the Wongo women plan surprises for their captive guests. This zany musical comedy is performed in three acts with no seats or stage. Audience members are encouraged to come dressed up in purple and green and to engage with the actors as they move around the space. During the two intermissions, audience members can further become part of the show by participating in the Wongo Game Shows where they can win prizes, while others can simply observe the fun, dance or replenish their green Wongotini cocktails.

"...While the script is an appropriate send-up of B movies past, this production falls short. The frequent shifting of attention between performance spaces and downtime for bathroom breaks and drinks don't allow the performance energy to build; they actually foster the opposite of the intended "immersive" experience. Additionally, the direction and cast performances lack the vitality necessary to create the world of Wongo and ensure the jokes get laughs."

"...The Wild Women of Planet Wongo is an immersive experience, best enjoyed with a group of enthusiastic friends and a couple of Wongotinis ( vodka, tequila, midori and lime juice ). If you get a little tipsy and accept that this is kind of a crazy Jetsons-meets-Rocky-Horror musical extravaganza right down to its antiquated gender norms, you'll have fun."
