"Only one of the actors, Jeff Sumner, who plays the evil scientist Jerry, an eager patient of Dr. Tad's proctology practice, is a member of Actors' Equity, which I believe says something: The whole production has a kind of garage-show feel to it. The songs are unmemorable, the story a pulpy post-modern soap opera, the dancing exceptional, especially for the small space, but repetitive. Nevertheless, for an entertaining, bacchanalian night out on the town, maybe with your bestie beside you and a drink in your hand, and if you give free rein to your suspension of disbelief, hey, go for it. (My companion's advice. She thinks I was trying to take the whole thing far too seriously.)"

"With flashes of ROCKY HORROR and RENT, Michael Shaw Fisher's DR. NYMPHO VS. THE SEX ZOMBIES gives the audience more than an eyeful of enthusiastic and energetic nubile women and men in a fast-paced burlesque romp, inventively choreographed to every inch of the Lex's tiny stage. Kudos to choreographers Brin Hamblin and Alli Miller for squeezing in the dancing ensemble of seventeen, bumping and grinding in all sorts of sensual and sexy configurations, in every available nook and cranny of the Lex stage. Director Sarah Haworth-Hodges smartly keeps the action swiftly advancing forward."
