Who Ya Gonna Call? (Superfan / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013

“This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.” Since ‘Ghostbusters’ came out in 1984, what the world has been missing is ‘Ghostbusters The Musical’, and it’s finally happened. Whether you’re a ‘Ghostbusters’ aficionado (Level Three) like the Superfan theatre company, or just a Level One fan of slapstick and song, there’s something in it for everyone. Filling their show to the brim with super nerdy jokes (and ectoplasmic goo) the three cast members recreate the 80’s classic with homemade props and beautifully improvised humour and songs. The highlight is undoubtedly the reconstruction of the iconic ‘Ghostbusters’ montage, with cardboard newspapers and lots of intense running on the spot. The only thing that could’ve improved this show is a cameo from Bill Murray himself.

Wilkie House Upstairs, until 24 Aug, 5.15pm.
