Let us see the best of Virginia Woolf instead of the precious and indeterminate moments represented in this production. Language and lyricisms are part but not all of the memorable. The memorable has something to do with lingering significances.
The guitar players are horrible. Its no talent players and bands like this that are allowed to play in the bars around Tucson that ruin it for the good ones. Defcon 5, go away!!!
I bought 2 paintings from this Rogo artist and he never sent them. He claimed "health issues" and other issues for months. I never received the paintings and now he doesn't respond to emails. AVOID!
I concur with Cynthia! I was there too and I feel like it was such a ripoff!! We had to wait almost an hour after it started before anything happened and then they served us salad with warm ranch dressing. The salad was so small and tasted like it came from under a heat lamp. Bartender was sloppy but slow and there was no wait staff to ask us for more drinks during the show. No water, soda...nothing. Then after our small salad, we had to wait another 30 min or so for them to start the show and then we ate our "wedding dinner". Luke warm chicken that was served with al-dente noodles and when I say al-dente, I mean hard. This place is certainly not worth the $45 per person cash only status and I would never recommend it to any one I know. CONSUMER BEWARE -- RIP OFF
Not what their website advertises at all! Extremely corny and super low budget! Not worth the 45.00 dollars per person! Then they expected tips! Food was not good at all; actually the food was more of a mystery that the show itself! Experience at this show was just flat out disappointing. I took my niece for her 35th birthday and flew in my sister from out of state for this show! I was totally embarrassed! Then to top it all off...they do not except credit cards! What kind of business are they running! Are they afraid ppl will stop payment? I would certainly stop payment! Something should be done...this is a rip off! I give solely one star only because I feel sorry for them! Extremely pissed...
From an exhibitor point of view the show was a bust. It did not deliver on the buyer attendance and quality. E-cigarette manufacturers are better off spending their marketing dollars in other conventions in Las Vegas and orlando. Very high expectations of the show yet poor results. Tucson was a great location for an event like this, hopefully it can attract an industry group or association to bring a larger more established show to this great city that caters so well to business travelers.
Filled out the form that promised to contact me more than two weeks ago. Followed up with several phone calls, not returned. Any suggestions? Are they still in business?
One of their regulars came at me with a pool stick. He was pissed because I mispronounced his name. Now he came at me with this pool stick raised saying "I'm gonna kick your ass". I reacted by going at him. They kicked me out.
Seems the truth hurts, doesn't it, Billy? Your keyboard player didn't hold a gun to your head and make you drink, fall all over yourself and insult everybody in the place. In fact, he and the rest of the band finished the final set while you staggered off in mid-song, too drunk to finish the job you'd been hired to do by RJs. And here you are insulting everyone's intelligence by claiming you were the responsible one in the group? Suuure you were....
Please, I beg of you, do NOT go to their show. This production deserved NO stars. We went on 9/28, and I am still angry about losing $90.80 (incl tax). There were four "actors" who wanted to be somewhere else. A group of middle school kids could put on a better show. The acting was mundane without any flair or expertise whatsoever. It seemed to be totally impromptu and unrehearsed. Lousy Halloween costumes. The vampire didn't even bother to wear some convincing make-up. Unprofessional. They (or we) might as well have been reading on stage from a script. Little facial expression. The audience participation was the only good part. The tired old jokes were often crude and just not so funny. (Children were present.) Guppie was better as the inspector. The gypsy brought some enthusiasm to his work and at least dressed for the part. . . . . he had to because he is a man playing a woman. The story was stupid, unimaginative and ridiculous. The venue was the back room of a Chinese restaurant. Smelled. About 45 people stuffed into this small room next to the restrooms. There was NO stage, only a single backdrop, and 2 floodlights in back shown into the faces of half the audience. The meal was also a disappointing joke. Only water was served with the meal, and you had to ask for it. I went to the bar twice to get water for me and Mom. $2 for pop or iced tea. Not-so-fresh salad with same dressing for all. No bread & butter. Lots of noodles in a bland white (alfredo?) sauce. I think the chicken and rice in the breading was real. Half the people at my table of 8 barely touched their meal. Dessert was a TINY piece of cheap cheesecake, definitely not Cheesecake Factory. Please believe me, we were not the only people dissatisfied with the show and the meal. Those who purchased liquor or beer may have been happier. To add insult to injury, the actors said they were unpaid and asked for tips. Can you believe it -- at $42 a head for crappy acting and crappy food. PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS BUSINESS! 10/07/13
I wasn't at this event, but I can assure you that Billy Templeton has been plagued by demon alcohol for many years. There are better bands - try Chance Romance.
What a totally crappy band! I want my money back!
PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS BUSINESS! ZERO STARS!!
I got 4 tickets to the Mystery Theater as a gift for my mother. This cost about $200 so I expected quite a lot. When calling into the theater the man who answered the phone was completely unprofessional and rude. He explained how the evening would go, how wonderful the food would be, how interactive and engaging the show would be etc. but was condescending and impatient with me. He made me feel as if I was wasting his time, but I assumed he was busy, so I went through with the transaction…
When my mother tried to schedule a time to go to the show she was treated very poorly. She called in and booked a Saturday night, but immediately remembered that she had a prior commitment, so called them back within MINUTES. The man almost REFUSED to let her change days! She wanted to change to the Friday and he said she could not and that it was too late to do so! She had literally just spoken to him. He finally agreed to allow her to change days but made her feel bad about it. I was in the room and immediately became really worried about how her evening would play out…
When I next saw my mother I asked how the evening went- she just groaned! Horrible food (NOT what was promised when I made the ticket purchase). NO interaction from the people on stage with the audience (I was told that the staff would drop of clues at the table while the dinner was being served and that the entire evening would be highly interactive). The show was tacky, boring and not funny. My mother said at the end they simply gave the audience a piece of paper and said, “Read this and write your answers down and don’t forget to give us a tip.” Wow! All 3 of her friends were completely appalled by the show and staff.
I am so disappointed that I wasted so much money on this gift and even more disappointed that my mother and her friends had an awful time. PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS BUSINESS!
This place was terrible!!! Although the play itself was fun, it was a rip off! We called to get our money back before the show after we read a review and the person on the phone was so rude! He was yelling at us and saying some very shocking statements, and would not give us our money back! The tickets are $42 each! That is almost as much as a Broadway ticket! The tickets were no way worth what the price was even with a meal. Bringing up the meal, first there was a salad, which one girl at my table was given no dressing, and my husband had to ask the drink waiter multiple times to get his drink. After the salad, they gave us Mexican food?? The plate was not even full! There was one chip, with a little bit of beans, a tiny enchilada, and a little piece of corn bread. I was about ready to ask the waiters (actors) serving, if that was all we were getting! The room and table clothes were dirty, and the little favors of bubbles they gave us were empty. The humor was crude, the list goes on.
This does not appear to involve Doug Stanhope at all.
These listings BADLY need corrections links. The Weekly staff can't possibly claim to always be correct.
Nothing special. Older men tottering around getting "turned on." Wish I'd stayed home.
We went to this show and no one was there. Never say any cancelation and spent 2 hours of driving for nothing.
She touched me in ways I have never been touched before... Very unprofessional. I wouldn't wish this level of service for my worst enemy. So disappointed...
This is possibly the worst event I've ever been to. The photographer was bossy, rude, and incredibly unprofessional. Not to mention the fact that work quality was less than that of my 4 yr old. She does better with her Minnie mouse camera than this woman does her "professional equipment."
I would NEVER recommend her to anyone. My best advice to you is to stay as far away from this train wreck as possible.
Well Fox changed their schedule but didn't let you guys know apparently. That was a pointless 2 hour round trip
