I don't typically leave negative reviews, but we paid the equivalent of $44 (US) and I can't see letting others waste their money on this. The concept is great and could be developed really well but the venue is terrible and the content was so boring that we left at intermission.
If you do decide to go, show up right at 7:30 when the doors open and be sure to sit in the front. The theater floor is not sloped and the chairs in front of us were taller than our seats. I had to shift from side to side so that I could see around the head of the woman in front of me. It was sold out and there was a crying infant who was taken to the lobby by a parent but you could still hear the baby and no one from the venue seemed to deal with it.

Just skip it

70's absurd humor that still works pretty well (sometimes naive in a lovely way). The "black light" concept works really well (better than I expected).
Actors are good and the little comic stories are in general fun. You realize (as it is a selection) that maybe rhythm in humor has changed (increased) from what it was 40 or 50 years ago so the show might seem a bit slow at some points.
I would definitely eliminate the pause as for an hour and a half you don't need it and even makes you feel the show is too long.
The theatre is really small so if you want a good sit you better stay there at 7'30 when they open doors.
A bit overpriced. I saw some people paying a bit less than we did (25€ per person) so there must be a way to get a discount.

We found this show to be boring and left at intermission. The humor was repetitive to the point of being painful at times.

Prepurchased tickets. No hassle getting in and it was an experience I was glad we had. Never seen anything like it before. Small theatre and intimate performance. Use of illusion to crest animated looking mime and activity. Washing on the clothes line very creative and illusion of riding a horse and the fish under water were great.

avarage. they still acting old tricks in old way. I am sorry to say that; Try another black theatre in Narodny street. Srnec should review their play; It last 2 hours ( repeating same tricks in every sletches ) and cost almost 30 euro for boring sketches.
