COMMENTS:

This show is hard to explain, as any good DADA is, but if wasentertaining while at the same time still projection large societalproblems. As it states in the program DADA is a reaction to what ismeaningless and absurd, such as the needless war plaguing our countryat the present moment. Even though the subject matter was heavy and attimes a bit frightening the DADAist had me laughing continuously attheir antics. Perfect comic and dramatic timing, beautifullyillustrated characters and numerous moments for audience participationmade this one unique and fascinating trip through the world of DADA! A+

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

I greatly hope that this show is picked up. Not only is it an art form that should be celebrated not hidden, but thus performance in particularwas so enlightening while still making me laugh. I loved it and Iwould love to have an opportunity to see it again in New York City.

I agree that DADA is a form of theatre that is hard to understand, however, I thought the writer and actors made for a very entertaining experience which I enjoyed.
