    It Sure Beats Sitting on the Tarmac

    Catherine Rampell

    September 16, 2011: Imagine Borat doing dinner theater, and you’ll have a pretty good sense of whether you’ll enjoy “The Lapsburgh Layover.”

    The Lapsburgh Layover

    Andy Propst

    September 13, 2011: Surprisingly smart goofball humor gives way to sophomoric silliness in The Berserker Residents' The Lapsburgh Layover, now playing at Ars Nova. As inventively directed by Oliver Butler (who also helped develop the piece), it inspires both guffaws and groans.

    Review: The Lapsburgh Layover

    Adam Feldman

    September 13, 2011: The Lapsburgh Layover is overlaid with multiple covers of metatheatrical gamesmanship. Tucked too tightly, such an approach can be stifling; but the layers are endearingly larkish and loose in this offbeat hybrid of dinner theater, genre send-up, horror thriller and sketch comedy.

    The Lapsburgh Layover's Trippy Theater

    Alexis Soloski

    September 20, 2011: Ah, the delights of Lapsburgh: its castles, its discotheques, its 16 varieties of sheep. You won’t find it on most maps, so imagine this European principality as a slighter Montenegro with stranger native dances.

    The Lapsburgh Layover

    Rachel Merrill Moss

    September 12, 2011: Though layovers have recently become the choice options for longer air travel journeys, The Berkserker Resident’s fictional country of Lapsburgh is certainly not one that should be getting a stopover pathway through it anytime soon. The Lapsburgh Layover, now playing at Ars Nova, is a quick jaunt through the the fictional Lapsburgh, which quite enjoyably proves beyond a doubt that, despite the heartbreakingly hilarious and darling attempts of the locals to woo layover passengers with the charms of Lapsburghian tourism and culture, Lapsburgh might need a little further development before attracting those mainstream flight paths.
