Theater: Soho Playhouse / 15 Vandam St., New York, New York, 10013

Synopsis: 

Marshall Pailet, Bryce Norbitz and Steve Wargo's musical comedy Triassic Parq The Musical vividly brings together music, sex and singing dinosaurs in ways hitherto unimagined.

Chaos is unleashed upon the not-so-prehistoric world when one dinosaur in a clan of females spontaneously turns male. The mutation spawns a chain reaction of identity crises, forcing the dinosaurs to question the very facts of life they've held as truth. Triassic Parq is an unflinching musical meditation on science, faith and love. Like all great tales laden with import, it is narrated by Morgan Freeman.

    Dinosaurs With Problems, Prehistoric and Modern

    ERIC GRODE

    July 1, 2012: “Triassic Parq the Musical” is overproduced and scattershot and a little bit desperate. It is also more than a little bit fun. This bawdy tribute to dinosaurs and their newfound genitalia doesn’t particularly make sense, and the would-be cult-classic onslaught at the very beginning — a naughty preshow announcement, a belabored gag with a white guy impersonating Morgan Freeman — has the “Laugh! I said laugh!!” hard sell of far too many New York International Fringe Festival transfers. (This one won an award for best musical at the 2010 festival.)

    NY Review: 'Triassic Parq'

    David Sheward

    June 27, 2012: If you want the theatrical equivalent of a quick bite, "Triassic Parq" is as nutritious and forgettable as a bag of chips. A hit in the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival and running a swift 80 minutes, this mini-musical has a sorta-funny premise, a whip-smart cast, frenetic staging, and an acidic sense of humor. But it will vanish from your mind the minute you hit the pavement outside the SoHo Playhouse.

    Triassic Parq The Musical

    Andy Propst

    June 28, 2012: Musicals don't get much goofier than Triassic Parq The Musical, now playing at SoHo Playhouse, the fitfully amusing show about what might prompt genetically engineered dinosaurs (which are part of an island similar to the one in Jurassic Park) to run amok on a carnage-filled spree.

    Triassic Parq

    Matthew Murray

    June 27, 2012: Think of it as a premise encased in amber. An island where humans use convoluted scientific experiments to bring dinosaurs back to life slowly but surely falls prey to the very creatures they were so sure they could control, but — get this! — we see it all from the reptiles' perspective. It sounds brilliant, right? Especially given that the story on which it's obviously based, as previously immortalized on both page and screen, took itself so seriously that parodying its inherent improbability is basic common sense? Yet despite the idea's essential genius, the theatre piece resulting from it, Triassic Parq: The Musical, is a snoozer.

    'Triassic Parq' Review: Off-Broadway Play Is Deeply Funny

    Associated Press

    June 28, 2012: Pre-history would sound very different if dinosaurs could tell their own stories. Especially if they were raucously singing and dancing while dealing with identity crises and gender morphing and sudden doubts about the belief system that has always ruled their lives. A troupe of leaping, singing dinosaurs are the true rock stars of the deeply funny "Triassic Parq, The Musical," which opened Wednesday night for a limited run off-Broadway at The SoHo Playhouse.
