One of the funniest, most entertaining and absurd pieces of theatre I’ve witnessed in a long time...the script flows with a joyous ease.

Amy electrifies with an exceptionally vibrant personality...hilarious.

XS Entertainment

Drew Lochrie was dashing, egotistical and pompous as Billy Zane...a real treat.
