The Public Theater presents this world premiere musical by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim.
Comments from published critics
‘‘...a completely immersive theater experience, lorded over by a DJ who provides some narration, teaches the occasional line dance, and spins the show's worldbeat dance tracks, which pulsate with groovy funk backbeats and island-friendly rhythmic rolls.’’
‘‘A new musical that’s so exhilarating and such a great time that it’s easy to recommend it without hesitation.’’
‘‘Something completely wild, original and irresistible is what it is. Performed without spoken dialogue, this sensory dance club experience actually functions as a compelling biographical deconstruction, surging along to a madly infectious score.’’
‘‘...the exciting new poperetta conceived by the musician (and former Talking Head) David Byrne sets a new standard for audience participation.’’
‘‘...an exuberant musical...The irresistibly danceable music, which starts with an innocent (not to say saccharine) ballad and whips itself into a disco frenzy, is what tears up the house.’’
