Theater Mania Review:

by Andy Propst

Musicals don't get much goofier than Triassic Parq The Musical, now playing at SoHo Playhouse, the fitfully amusing show about what might prompt genetically engineered dinosaurs (which are part of an island similar to the one in Jurassic Park) to run amok on a carnage-filled spree. [...] Caite Hevner's exceptional environmental scenic design, Dina Perez's consistently witty costumes, and Jen Schriever's eye-popping lighting design come together to often turn Triassic Parq into a guilty summertime pleasure. Read More

In fact, entering the theater feels like entering an amusement park ride, thanks to the set design of Caite Hevner and sound design of Carl Casella and Christopher Cronin.  Read More
