Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Rock Experience - Cyclopedic Ensemble
Reviewed By Stephanie Bonnett
Fringe audiences of all ages were thrilled to learn that Cyclopedic Ensemble was returning to Kansas City in 2023 after their smashing success in 2022 with “The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fair(l)y (stoopid) Tales”.
“Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Rock Experience” does not disappoint. This show is the perfect blend of what families enjoy watching together, 50% rollicking fun for the kiddos and 50% puns, grammar humor, and dad jokes for the adults!
The cast goes all out and were all in for their audience members. From rocking the wigs to belting out the songs to just plain rocking out, the energy was high the entire show. There were also some sweet moments when characters were interacting with young audience members, searching them for pockets and high fiving.
Of note is that cast members heading into the audience read body language and kept a friendly distance from young people who did not want to interact. But oh boy, the ones that did!
