This is a good effort for a first year. I was impressed by the sets and the good usage of actors to progress a coherent storyline throughout the performance.
However, it could use some improvement. Firstly, much of the house which is in the basement of Paulo's Pizza on 51st & Howard, is too brightly lit. Particularly in the halls between sets. I would recommend at least replaceing standard lighting with colored lights or black lights, and leaving it pitch black in some areas.
Paticularly at the end with the big alien, complete blackness with a strobe light would be alot more effective IMO.
Also, I wasn't quite sure when to leave one scene and move onto the next, it could use some better cues as to when to move on.
Also, there could be some minor things of interest between scenes. Somthing as simple as hanging fabric that has to be pushed through to make the transition from one scene to another more interesting.
They do however give you a coupon for a free drink at their bar at the end.
Great first effort, but could use some improvement.
