Review of WE ARE WYLD STALLYNS (New Millennium Theatre Company) : Count-Gregula.com
Review by: Count & Countess Gregula
If you are fan of the Bill and Ted Excellent Adventure films, then this play is for you. Basically a continuation of the series, the play takes place sometime after the last movie ended. Bill and Ted are now married to their girls, they have kids and their band Wyld Stayllns is starting to go places.
Turns out our heroes are entered into a 'Battle of the Bands' competition.
However, their opponents are not just some random metal band...they are dark and sinister figures who are hell bent on taking over the world. Lucky for the boys, they have the most excellent Rufus and his telephone booth
time machine on their side...
The play is entertaing, hilarious and loud as there are two live bands performed
by the cast who are talented musicians. Several members of the cast even play various characters.
So... be prepared to... PARTY ON, DUDES!
Count and I give We are Wyld Stallyns or: How Bill and Ted Save the World
"Two Fangs" up and we highly recommend going to see it before the party is over! ;-)
