As a twenty-something, I thought the action-packed first two acts were freakin awesome! The show goes much deeper at the very end of Act II and deals with more serious emotions throughout Act III. If you are not young at heart or are a bit long-in-the-tooth, the first two acts are probably not going to be your cup of tea, but it's still worth the price of admission.
Directed by Lila Neugebauer this show is action-packed, funny, emotional, and moving. Troublemaker gives you the feeling of being in the movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (rent it) and then moves away from that comic book edge towards what reality can be for a kid. This show will truly make you remember what it was like to be a kid again and how hard being that age can feel.
