InFusion Theatre's second collaboration with playwright Qui Nguyen is a campy spectacle with little substance beneath its well-staged exterior. In its midwest premiere, this intergalactic parody follows E-V (played by Sheila O'Connor), the last known human in the galaxy—or so she thinks. There are too many characters and alien races to keep track of, and the show could use some cutting and zippier dialogue. But the visual feast onstage won't disappoint. Puppetry designed by Kimberly G. Morris and costumes from Rachel Sypniewski bring to life creatures that could be found sipping a neon beverage at the Star Wars Cantina—and yes, they have the obligatory alien bar scene here. David Blixt's fight scenes feel more Matrixesque than should be possible in a small theater. —Marissa Oberlander
