"Randy Reyes has made a bold choice for his first production as Artistic Director of Theater Mu..."

"...“Kung Fu Zombies” is truly a one-of-a-kind experience..."

~ Dominic Orlando, HowWasTheShow.com


"...sports plenty of high-flying and kinetic stage fighting and explores the never-ending ramifications of war."

"Director Randy Reyes... does a strong balancing act as each of the different elements in the work gets a chance in the spotlight."

~ Ed Huyck, City Pages


"Sika [is] played with a ferocious zeal by Meghan Kreidler."

"One of the main strengths of this production is it refusal to rest on conventions"

"The action in this play was epic. Truly, it was. Choreographed amazingly by Allen Malicsi, every fight scene crackled with cinematic flair."

~ Tommy O'Brien, MXDWELL.com


"Kung Fu Zombies Vs. Cannibals... has all the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster. There’s zombies, Kung Fu and the cutest little girl that would give Dakota Fanning a run for her money during her I am Sam period... It’s an action-packed adventure."

"Jeannie Lander, as the evil cannibal priestess…embraces Vongsay's over-the-top style and delivers a gloriously malicious performance."

~ Sheila Regan, TC Daily Planet


"King Fu Zombies Vs. Cannibals delivers as promised"

"Fans of Shogun Assassin (or, for the purists, Lone Wolf and Cub) will delight in a stage play that takes its cues from the same source material that influenced… Quentin Tarantino, and accomplishes everything you used to be pretty sure live theater can't do."

~ Rob Callahan, Vita.mn
