Fight Girl Battle World

***1/2 (out of 5 stars)
Vampire Cowboys

With its endless fight scenes, wacky characters, puppets, wigs, bangs, pows and thwacks, this sci-fi cartoon play wants nothing more than for you to laugh your ass off. Sustained by a tireless comic ensemble trying very hard to not only bust up the audience but each other as well, this silly bring-a-beer-to-your-seat garage play revels in its over-the-top sensibility. The evil and horrible human race has been destroyed- all but one male and one female- and the rebellion's task at hand is to hook this saucy girl and serial killer dude up and have them mate to avoid extinction of their species. Fun! It's not Checkov, or Asimov, but stupid theater like this is a great stupid date play. Take a hot drunk with you. It'll probably get you laid.
