Pioneer Press :: The Best Theater and Dance Shows of 2013
1. Children's Theatre Company's "The Wong Kids in the Secret of the Space Chubacabra Go!" (Oct. 11- Nov. 17): I never laughed more heartily in a theater this year than at this wonderfully entertaining sci-fi spoof that Children's Theatre co-produced with New York's Ma-Yi Theater Company. Lloyd Suh's script is a hoot, but it also deftly deals with the emotional turbulence of the early teen years and makes an eloquent case for how we're all strengthened by diversity. Even while battling planet-eating monsters and hopping between dimensions.
