"It was an honor to check out his show. It paid homage to the MCU, complete with cartoon intros to each scene and a post-credits final scene. The show is hilarious in that it does not take itself too seriously. Every cast member turned in amazing performances, making this one of the “must see” shows of HFF19, especially if you are a Marvel fan. Not only that, it has what we think is the best flyer and poster."

"As a ‘not a die-hard fan’ of old school paper comics, but a most definite fan of the modern Marvel Universe of superhero movies, this production had a certain attraction. And I will say right at the top, each actor did indeed, ‘nail’ their respective roles and bits throughout the comedy driven by playwright and lead actor/enthusiastic superhero at large, John Patrick Daly..."

"How I Became A Superhero definitely falls into the genre of the comical Superhero story but it lacks good character development."

"Despite the discouraging times we are currently living, How I Became a Superhero is a fun, uplifting play that helps bring out an inner child that’s been just begging to come out and play. And this show does exactly that, play. All whilst serving some deeply needed truths in pink tights and velvet purple shirts. And dancing. Projections were stellar, entertaining and creatively used to buy time during costume and set changes. the use of costumes to enhance the stage combat, the stage fighting was also some of the better of professional productions I’ve seen. John Patrick Daly is such a natural on stage. He really holds a charm to the show that makes you fall in love with him, he brings this shameless childlike playfulness out of you as an audience. I’d love to see a sequel of Otto’s hero journey. Supporting actors Jessica Carlson and Jack de Sanz did really that, support, and they did it so well. Their seamless transitions from various characters in the play were so believable and funny. It can be difficult pulling off such animated characters and both of these actors found a perfect balance of extreme and realistic."

"Very good timing and comedic throughout. It was like watching a comic book with the transitions. Main protagonist could have more depth in his backstory, he was one dimensional. The supporting characters helped the story and got many laughs from the audience, specially the villain who had a chance to interact with the audience"
