Press:

“The show is best when parody blurs into the already surreal dimensions of what’s being parodied. That’s true of the eye-popping visuals throughout (right down to the ads on the walls). And Ms. Parks and Mr. Vernon’s pastiche fusion musical numbers, choreographed with slashing wit by Jennifer Weber, are as synthetically sweet and perversely addictive as the real thing. (Think of them as ear Skittles.)”—Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Jennifer Weber’s super-synched contemporary choreography feels knowingly, playfully poptastic.”—Sara Holdren, New York Magazine

“The show's indisputable highlight comes at the end, when we're treated to a mini-concert by all the KPOP stars.  Featuring dazzling choreography and full-throttle vocals by the sexy young performers, the musical numbers wouldn't look out of place at Madison Square Garden. ”—Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

“As we move in groups through different areas, tiny bubbles of pleasure keep floating up and bursting all around us. Pop! Pop! Pop! We’re sold”-- Adam Feldman, Time Out New York  (Critic’s Pick, ****)
