Unique! Fantasy Island for Dummies at Trap Door Theatre (October 7, 2016)

(Listen to this song while reading the review)

True to form, Trap Door Theatre presents a wildly bizarre performance of Fantasy Island for Dummies. As you enter the theatre, one of the actors (playing the role of a dummy) is being moved around by another, often to comedic effect. Also, a man is sitting on a hut strumming on a ukulele. The show boasts original songs by Pink Velvet and Mike Mazzocca.  All these elements help transport the audience to a magical island atmosphere with an air of mystery.

The costumes for this production are excellent; especially the white suits worn by Mr. Roarke and Tattoo. The rest of the cast wears very colorful outfits that create a fun tropical feeling. It’s a fantastical show that is truly unique in the Chicago theatre scene. It’s so strange and that’s what makes is so fun and artful.

Escape now to Fantasy Island for Dummies through November 5th.
