SPACE CAPTAIN: Captain of Space is a hit! "In a universe filled with Technicolor 3D regurgitated so-called entertainment, SPACE CAPTAIN: CAPTAIN OF SPACE is a wickedly delightful theatrical extravaganza that will leave your sides hurting from laughter." —Fears Magazine
"Hilariously campy...[Jeff] Sproul's feisty play, snappily directed by Lindsey Moore Sproul, divides its time well between stage and screen." —Backstage
"Nonstop entertainment from beginning to end...Sproul's script will leave you in stitches...the entire cast, film and stage, does a fantastic job...No Tea Productions has another comic gem to offer audiences looking for a fun experience." —NYTheatre.com
"For the price of a 3-D movie, NoTea Productions' Space Captain: Captain of Space! has live actors, actors appearing in film clips concerning a plot of impending planetary destruction, on-stage spaceship battles waged by glittery 1-D models, cave monster puppets, and non-stop fun...original, well-crafted silliness." —Flavorpill
"A hilarious and reverential homage to the great American sci-fi tropes of the 20th century...effing awesome...dialogue so snappy you'll think they left a mousetrap in your seat." —Cultural Capitol
"A great theater experience and all around humorous time...great performances...definitely check this one out if you like good old timey pulp action with a modern edge and with an actual take home moral." —Short and Sweet NYC
"Playwright Jeff Sproul hits all the right notes...authentically cheesy...a strange and silly show." —Theater For Nerds
...the first stage show done entirely in black and white!
...a brand new multimedia comedy mixing live theater with film and puppetry!
...set in the world of 1930's adventure stories like "Flash Gordon," but with a modern sense of humor!
