The Bogeyman

Overall, I was hugely impressed with the immersive world they were able to achieve without the benefit of visual stimulus and I would recommend Bogeyman as highly as some of ZJU’s most acclaimed productions like Urban Death and Blood Alley.

HELL'S FINEST

Hell’s Finest has a strong concept and the structure allows them to explore both the horror and comedy of what basically amounts to a cult leader job interview but with that comes a few hiccups in finding its identity. It doesn’t take itself seriously enough to be considered much of a drama and while there are some moments of horror it seems to be intended primarily with the issue there being that D and M are not funny.

The Woman Who Went to Space as a Man

The relationship Alice has with Tiptree is one of the more nuanced and exciting elements of the play as it's never given a singular influence as the two seem to orbit around each other in a dance of attraction and repulsion, never managing to coalesce into a single entity but having to create that appearance for the public.

Radiant Vermin

Radiant Vermin has a lot going for it and will appeal to anyone that enjoys dark comedy and tonal dissonance. The resolution doesn't end up leaving the strongest lasting impression, though the clever fourth wall break works well enough and there's a scene or two where it starts to take itself a bit more seriously than is warranted, in general, it's a fiendish comedy with a cast of charming and memorable characters.

Señor Plummer's Final Fiesta

A performance is only as good as its actors, though, and The Rogue Artists Ensemble has put together a tremendous cast to express its expansive vision. There is so much talent here with top-notch singers, dancers, musicians, animators and actors that manage to make the whole production seem graceful and effortless while managing what must be a daunting organizational effort to make everything come together on schedule.

What Happened When

In the incredibly tight narrative encompassing 6 years from 2009 to 2015, we aren't privy to much to many of the key moments that drive the plot along. Instead, we witness the consequences of these events told through a handful of key interactions between the siblings. What might seem to be a rather ordinary premise comes to life with a combination of nuanced writing and some very honest and invigorated performances.
