I laughed so hard. I cheered and yelled so hard. I cried so hard. My cheeks hurt so good from smiling so hard. 
 

If you’re in a certain age range, Marc Summers is a legit icon and seeing him in a show like this, up close and personal is legit one of the coolest things I’ve ever gotten to do. I hope it’s a HUGE success for him.

I went tonight with some friends (all of us of the late 80s/early 90s) and this just joyously hit so many nostalgia buttons that my motherboard is broken. 

Marc is a hell of a storyteller and really doesn’t skimp on how his OCD had adversely affected his life and career, but also he knows deep down that entertaining people has what has always been his saving grace even in the darkest times. The house looked to only be about 60% full (which is sad for a Saturday night) but the whole experience is a mutual love fest.

My name got drawn to go up and play the full Double Dare simulation and so I got to do a physical challenge and absolutely SMOKED the other team in the trivia (even Marc was impressed - I only missed one question). I got a prize voucher for a t-shirt (which is essentially a $30 gift voucher since you can exchange it and the largest size was too short for me 😂)

Go and have fun. You come away learning a lot about the man who made your childhood great and you can have the opportunity to return that love. (I wanted to stage door but the rain was absolutely atrocious so I may just write a letter instead.)

I'm kind of surprised to see so few reviews for this show, what is particularly odd is the New York Times wrote a big profile on the show before it opened but they didn't review it?

From the reviews I did see and my experience last night, it didn’t seem like a show that was reviewable - if that makes sense.

It’s really just a hybrid E! True Hollywood Story and nostalgic game show experience. I feel like it doesn’t need Jesse Green (or designee) to roll in and write up a critique. It’s dopey, fun, and also deeply affecting at times. Those who know Marc’s work will love it. Those who never heard of him or Double Dare won’t go see it.

Am I the only person who loved seeing Marc, but really disliked that "surprise 'audience member' element"? I felt like it kept taking the focus & spotlight away from Marc, during a show that was supposed to be him telling his story.

I hope he takes it to LA. Anyone hear anything?

Has anyone else seen this lately? Considering all the positive comments early on I am kind of surprised this thread died....
