"Deliciously silly and broad… catchy, clever and nervy"

"The Brain from Planet X" is also a glorious salute to the great American musical, with the same satiric air and sexy style as "The Producers" and the same nostalgic feel as "Little Shop of Horrors""

Eric Marchese Orange County Register

"A funnier script and premise you'll never see. The songs rock"
