As the debate between Evolution and Creationism rages, 'Evolution: The Musical!' invites you to enter a world where both theories are true. In this musical tour-de-funk, we meet The Beasties, a clan of humans who have recently evolved from primates, and The Blesseds, a self-righteous religious sect who descended directly from Adam and Eve. When a brutal slaying provokes the Beasties to attack the Blesseds, all hell breaks loose and an unlikely romance throws a monkey wrench into the whole musical mess. Will the rule of humanity go to the ape people or the Jesus freaks? Anything is possible in this awkward marriage of West Side Story and South Park. Written by Anonymous

If only it'd had the audio production values of Rocky Horror!
29 June 2011 | by (Taichung, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

"Evolution: The Musical!" was a labor of love, but marred by a lack of audio production values where they were needed. It's kinda tragic, really.

The main problem for me was with the audio. I really have no problem with zany lyrics and over-the-top amateur thespianizing. In fact, I generally can't get enough of this! So, what's the prob? For one thing, the dynamics were uneven: Plain dialog was maddeningly weak while juxtaposed with musical numbers that were at an appropriate volume. Well, that sucks. The other problem was that choral numbers and solos were croaked out, with the words very difficult to discern. So I guess my cure would have been to have had more seasoned personnel attending to these things. The audio experience should have been more like that of Rocky Horror, which had its share of colorful sprechstimme and off-key singing, and yet conveyed the lyric content wonderfully.

Besides these disappointments, there were certainly nice sequences, such as those where Jesus and Darwin make the scene; some of the better acting was seen there.

If you watch this at home, I guess I would recommend listening with headphones. I haven't yet done this, so don't know for sure whether that would do the trick.

All that said, it was cheeky and campy and there were some great visual ideas, and a seemingly (not quite sure) interesting exploration of the culture collision of world views.

Check it out.
