VOCA PEOPLE OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS

Opening Night: July 12, 2011

Show NY TIMES TIME OUT NY POST TM SBW
Broadway Review Broadway Review Broadway Review Broadway Review Broadway Review

Synopsis: A spaceship from planet VOCA just crashed to Earth and the Voca People are making their entrance. They discovered that their spaceship's fuel - musical energy - is running on empty. Their mission: to musically refuel their spaceship by performing the music of Earthlings. Voca People is an out-of-this-world musical event that combines vocal sounds, a capella singing, comedy and the art of beat box. Performed by eight snow-white ruby-lipped aliens with perfect harmony, there are no musical instruments, only vocals. Voca People believe music is the source of life that brings harmony, joy and refueling. A performance bursts with over 70 well known songs that create vocal "fireworks" and leave audiences clapping along and snapping their fingers. Voca People is the musical theater event that bridges languages, cultures, and planets.

Broadway Reviews

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"There was a time when a cappella was one of music’s best-kept secrets. Relatively few people were aware of just how sophisticated the genre had become or how many sounds the best a cappella singers could draw on: not just standard notes, but vocal percussion, orchestral imitation and more. "

TIME OUT NEW YORK REVIEW:

"Whenever Voca People sing, it’s hard to shake the feeling that you’re at a taping of America’s Got Talent. This quirky a cappella novelty act is exactly the sort of thing you’d see on that TV competition—or on YouTube. (One of the troupe’s videos has 8.6 million hits and counting.) The eight talented noisemakers—six singers, one scratcher and one beat-boxer, all (ironically?) outfitted like mimes with bald pates—are impressive when they’re just doing their thing, careering through medleys filled with famous melodies by everyone from Mozart to Michael Jackson. But when the music stops, so does the momentum."

NY POST REVIEW:

"Imagine Blue Man Group expanding its roster, developing the ability to harmonize and turning from blue to white. That, in essence, is "Voca People," about an intergalactic singing group."

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"In the new 90-minute musical review, Voca People, now at the Westside Theatre, a powder-faced octet of frightfully talented a cappella singers run through fractions of dozens of songs from the pop music catalgoue: They harmonize the Beach Boys, belt Celine Dion, and bring a pop lightness to Nirvana. Wnile there's surely something for creating an entertainment that caters to every musical taste, It's a bit like listening to a car radio on scan. "

SHOW BUSINESS WEEKLY REVIEW:

"Upon first hearing a brief synopsis of the plot, one might be reluctant to head over to the Westside Theater to see Voca People. Freakish-looking aliens trapped on planet Earth seeking musical energy to refuel their spaceship may not sound like the perfect recipe for an all-voice musical, though somehow these performers make the audience not only sympathize with their ship wreckage, but also sit through the entire 90 minute show with a smile on their faces. "

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW:

"There is a reason a cappella is lampooned on comedies like 30 Rock and The Office — because a group of adults chicka-chicka-cha-ing through ABBA's ''Take a Chance on Me'' is just absurd. There are some guitar solos that aren't meant to be sung and drumbeats that shouldn't be clucked. Beatboxing and scratching are okay in a song, but not as a song. And after 30 or so minutes, they're primarily just annoying"

BROADWAY WORLD REVIEW:

"They look a little like Blue Man Group, they sound a little like Toxic Audio and they talk a lot like Andy Kaufman and Carol Kane playing Latka and Simka onTaxi, but while Voca People might give the appearance of being a bit too tourist trappy for we jaded New York theatre types, it's the kind of family friendly, good clean fun that's legitimately clever, catchy and often downright adorable."

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"Out of the dark, eight bald, chalk-white figures shuffle onto the stage of the Westside Theatre (Upstairs), gazing about apprehensively and twittering in an unknown tongue. They are the Voca People, aliens from the planet Voca who have come seeking fuel in the form of musical energy for their grounded spacecraft. By the end of this appealing 90-minute show, they have generated enough power through their thrilling a cappella singing to supply a fleet of starships."
