Review of Adventure Stage Chicago's Worthy
Luna and Robin had a quest together. They got to meet this amazing beautiful YouTuber (who was actually the Dragon) who taught you how to put on makeup. And that was Luna's hero. But then she turned out to be evil. I found that surprising because usually beauty gurus are not usually murderous. And it was very funny too because of how they trapped her--they trapped her by spraying her with a lot of hairspray which I found hilarious. The beauty gurus want to crush the you out of you sometimes, but they don't want to literally kill you. But then sometimes they are not all bad. They show you how to put on makeup because they like to put on makeup. Sometimes it is just for pretend, like you would wear it for halloween parties and stuff like that. I think the play is saying that it is ok to care about how you look, but it is also ok to not care very much or want to look different than other people. Robin doesn't like things that are super girly, but that still doesn't mean that she's not a girl. Luna loves beauty and she cares a lot about her appearance, but that doesn't mean that she is dumb.
People who would like this show are people who like fairy tales, dragons, and Big-Gulp-drinking trolls. I think people should definitely definitely go see this show. I thought it was a good show for teens and tweens and for adults. It made me think about some of the comments I have been getting on social media and how I shouldn't really take those to my head very much because I shouldn't really care what they think. This play is a great example of not having to care so much about what other people think. Sometimes it is hard to be a tween and know your way around the internet and not have your feelings hurt, and I think this play understood that.
