What a perfect venue! Practically got shivers as Joel Hodgson walks on stage, a true creative genius, responsible for bringing laughter and happiness to us for decades! It was great to see such a supportive crowd and the riffs were fresh and hysterical! Seeing the bots live was truly poetry in motion, puppeteering at it's finest! The jokes were timely, relevant, and approachable to beyond the core fanbase, needless to say your face hurt from smiling so much!

MST3K 6PM SHOW
It was cool the way they brought the show to the stage. The timing of the Video sequences to the live performance was flawless and the jokes seemed fresh even though they've sat through this movie several times. Fun time!

MST3K - WATCH OUT FOR SNAKES TOUR DE FORCE.
My wife and I were lucky enough to catch both the 7pm (Eegah) and 10pm (Secret Mystery Movie) shows. While it was warm as hell in the Moore; Joel, Jonah, the bots, Cynthia, & Terry made the six hours not just endurable they made it the best evening out we've had in years. There's something indescribable about seeing Jonah & the bots live in person. Even more impressive (to me anyway) was the fact these folks had performed this show on the road two dozen times before hitting Seattle, but each castmember still popped and shined like it was all fresh and new. Their ability to take riffs they'd delivered every night for a month- and make it feel like they'd just cracked wise for the first time- that's a special kind magic. These folks LOVE what they do, and it shows. That love it contagious. I hope they release this new Eegah & the 'secret mystery movie' (whose name I won't spoil). These two shows are in my all-time top 10, no doubt. They deserve to be seen by all MSTies everywhere!!

WE'VE GOT MOVIE SIGN
Jonah was comfortably in his element performing a live show. Crow was hysterically right on, sizzling with sharp improv in the host segments. And the 7pm movie, an incompetent and incoherent Canadian sci final, was ideal fodder. My only quibble is balcony seating a bit too confining for even ventriloquist dummies. No legroom and width xx small.

MST3K LIVE CINCINNATI, OH
The MST3K Live fulfilled every cheesy over-expectation we had built up over 6 months waiting to see it. Jonah is nerd-ily likeable and we deem him worthy as the new host, but the main reason we went was to see Joel! He was funnier than ever with his dead-pan delivery and great timing. The show was tight and well scripted, and the riffs were hilarious. We loved that it still family friendly - even though Crow has learned to “cuss”, and experiencing a MSTie with a theatre full of other fans who “got” every riff and reference was fun. Our seats were great and the Taft seemed like the perfect venue for this type of event. “Movie Sign!!”

My husband and I was able to make it from Holland Michigan and we had a blast!! Even got a selfie with our favorites!

IT WAS OKAY. I WISH THE SOUND WAS BETTER.
It was great seeing Joel Hodgson. I still have to watch the new version of the series but in all honesty I'm not sure if I will like it. Joel Hodgson was the highlight of the Minneapolis show at 7 p.m. hopefully I'm not doing any spoiler material here but I presume that the video that was shown after movie sign was all pre-recorded. My biggest issue was the sound. It was difficult to hear a lot of the jokes because the State Theater has too much Echo. Seeing a single comedian or a band is not a big deal but seeing a performance like mst3k would have been better in a smaller facility where you could appreciate the sound quality. All my best to Joel Hodgson. It was great to see him. The rest of the new cast is debatable.

As a huge fan of MST, I was disappointed by the poor acoustics and staging of this show. It was hard to hear the lines and the puppet handlers were visible most of the time. The setup was awkward and the banter between the movie segments was not very funny. The B-movie itself was truly the gem of the night, but overall definitely not worth the $75 ticket price.
Finn Lusby from Eugene Oregon
NOT WORTH THE MONEY
As a huge fan of MST3K, this was very unfunny. Some moments were very awkward and and acting was wooden. A lot of it just felt like it was rehearsed the day I saw it. And don’t try defending the production by saying it’s "Charming" I want my money back.
