"...Ray Bradbury wrote dozens of classic sci-fi and fantasy stories and novels. He even adapted his 1962 novel "Something Wicked This Way Comes" into a stage adaptation which BLK BOX PHX, ..is presenting in a visually stimulating production. It also features a talented cast and, like the novel, stirs the imagination in how it beautifully portrays the simultaneous existence of good and evil and the fight to not give in to the struggle of temptation....The leads in this production are excellent. Charlie Rabago and Noah Weavers beautifully evoke youthful excitement and fascination as the two young teenage boys, Will Halloway and Jim Nightshade...As Will's father, Mr. Halloway, Greg Lutz is giving a superb, beautiful, and at times heartbreaking performance...Director Elaine "E.E." Moe has clearly done excellent work with the cast, especially the four leads, to ensure they deliver realistic performances of fear and wonder at what the characters experience, and her staging makes very good use of the exceptional set by Douglas Clarke. ...beautifully portrays the innocence of youth, the hopes and fears of both young and old, the fear and fascination of the unknown, and the reminder that wishes can sometimes be the stuff of nightmares.....
