AT LAST! Someone has spoken the Truth. We at Jurassic Parq hate our show, and at last someone has seen the show for what it truly is. Did you think we wanted to write this piece? We are merely slaves to Destiny.
Who needs legitimate publications to rave about how hilarious, creative, and perpexlingly meaningful we are? The Wall Street Journal, Backstage, Theatermania, Nytheatre.com, Theateronline.com, Curtainup.com, The Happiest Medium, Nitelife Exchange, Theasy.com: BOO for saying such positive things about Jurassic Parq!
Don’t believe these:
"Not since “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” has there been such a playful re-imagining as “Jurassic Parq: The Broadway Musical.” -Backstage
“It’s royally entertaining, eliciting loud guffaws, cheers, howls of appreciation… I think we have a hit." – Nitelife Exchange
“"When the ensemble sings their final number, the comedy is immaculate, the music soars, and the audience is satisfied. Jurassic Parq is one of the best musicals in the Fringe, and perfectly suited to the festival's tone." –Theatre Is Easy
"I would love to see what could be done with it on a Broadway budget. I can whole heartedly admit that this is the most fun I've ever had at a Fringe show." - Nytheatre.com
Everyone true New Yorker knows that the real truth can be found at stagerush.com. StageRush has given us a Grade D and we applaud them for their bravery to oppose dozens of other reviewers and the ability to stand out from their pack with their Truths.
Please read these horribly negative quotes that have given us a Grade D and decide for yourself:
“Jurassic Parq: The Broadway Musical takes the creative license allotted by the New York Fringe Festival and rolls around in it like a pig in the mud on ecstasy.”
“A lovingly bizarre homage to the blockbuster novel”
“Kind of like a Wicked for prehistoric creatures”
“Kind of like a Spring Awakening for gigantic reptiles”
“The production is charming and nostalgic, if not healthily quirky.”
“A smart and successful moment… is the final number, 'We Are Dinosaurs' ”
“It did have its sold-out theater laughing most of the time.”
“An incredibly energetic and engaging cast.”
“Brandon Espinoza is a physical virtuoso as Mime-asaurus”
“Lee Seymour performs Morgan Freeman (or is it Samuel L. Jackson?) with hilarious deadpan.
"The cast performs Kyle Mullins’ choreography fantastically, executing the jazz moves with sharpness and spark.”
P.S. a D is for Suck Mary-Ellen's Dick.
