Pretty much everybody who’s anybody has heard of Superbolt Theatre’s runaway hit by now. If you haven’t, see it. If you have heard of it but not sure it’s as good as people claim, it is, see it. On the surface, it’s a story within a story, as a family end up acting out the film they were supposed to show as a screening. Underneath, it’s a very moving tale of a family coming together one year after the death of their mother after years of drifting apart. With a potted three-person rendition of the Spielberg classic and parallels with the family’s life, Superbolt brought a whole new story to life. They will continue performing this next year – you must catch it.
