"Shadowbox Live has a split personality: Sometimes the troupe reaches far out into experimental territory, and the rest of the time it stays true to what has become the bread and butter for the group, the skit comedy and rock music revue. "Body Heat" is the latest example of the working out of this formula, and if it doesn’t break ground, it does offer refreshingly varied musical numbers and sharply focused sketches. Stand-outs among the musical numbers include a hard-driving version of Joan Jett’s "Do You Wanna Touch" performed by Nikki Fagin and a stylish, bluesy "Strange Face of Love" with Julie Klein on vocals and Brent Lambert on searing guitar."
"This issue of Naked Sunfish not only marks our 15th Anniversary, but also 14 years of my reviewing shows at Shadowbox Live. Way back in January of 2003 I was invited to cover a performance … at what was then Shadowbox Cabaret … called Sex at the Box. And, as they say (whoever “they” is), the rest is history. While the format is basically the same, a lot has changed in 14 years … to both the theater troupe and this e-zine. Both have been refined, polished and streamlined … without losing an edginess, sense of daring … and a shared appreciation of the …. (How shall I put this delicately?) … lowbrow."
"Are sex and romance the best antidotes for the post-holiday blahs? Shadowbox Live seems to think so, as it always starts out the new year with the theatrical equivalent of a roll in the hay. Accordingly, the new Body Heat theme show holds forth with nearly two hours’ worth of heavy-breathing skits and songs. Is the show sponge-worthy, as Seinfeld’s Elaine Benes might ask? Yes, thanks to three laudable attributes: (1) Some of the skits are pretty clever. (2) Some of the songs are dynamite. And (3) Funk Daddy Love is back!"
