“…But, really, what’s a Fringe show without some modicum of poor taste, as in the exceptionally stupid and very wonderful I Can Has Cheezburger: The MusicLOL! As a caption on the source site (icanhascheezburger.com) might read: “Dumb play: Ur doin’ it right!” Insouciant, infantile, and uproarious, this tuner by Sauce and Co. tells of a cat who has his picture uploaded to the titular website and embarks on a heroic quest in search of that meaty, dairy-laden foodstuff. “I know what a cheeseburger tastes like,” the feline Odysseus opines. “It tastes like my destiny.” Silly ditties and ample screen grabs accompany his search. The villainous Mr. Wrong and Epic Fail attempt to foil it. Though the aisles at the Cherry Lane were too narrow to accommodate literal ROFL, several audience members attempted it.
No other show offered such gooey irreverence or a ballad like “Someone to Eat Cheese With.” …”

An excerpt of NY Theatre’s glowing review of I Can Has Cheezburger: The MusicLOL!
“The production is laugh-out-loud hilarious, while still being able subtly to present a commentary on our mediatized existence. It throws into relief the obsession we all have with the imaginary online world. Lolcat discovers a whole wonderland of adventure within the ether of the internet, but one with little applicability IRL (that is, in real life).
I Can Has Cheezburger is extremely well-written. It is able to be overflowing with jokes while still telling a coherent, albeit outrageous, tale. The text is punctuated with clever one-liners and witty wordplay, particularly through its use of internet acronyms and shorthand. The music is quite catchy and the lyrics are gleefully humorous.”
