Here's what the media has had to say about other Geekenders spectaculars:

«With the use of huge puppets, beautiful human x-wings and tie fighters, and explosions of confetti, this was both mind-blowing and epic. I am waiting impatiently for the return of fabulous dancing and singing, more (and better than our) puns, and tons of nostalgia and fandom with a cast that includes sexy appearances from Chewbacca, Darth, Han, R2D2, Luke, and many more, all crafting an impressive two-act adaptation of this classic cinematic masterpiece.»
-Living Myth Magazine on A Nude Hope

«From a not so scary Darth Vader, to a yummy Lando Calrissian, a swaggering braggadocio Han and independent Leia, athletic Yoda, a Justin Bieber Luke Skywalker to the awesomely cute pair of a rollerblading R2D2 and C3PO, and oh those Stormtrooper troops, this is a Star Wars cosplayer's fantasy dream.»
-Live Vancouver on The Empire Strips Back

«Not only did The Wizard of Bras provide a rousing burlesque show, but through the use of innuendo, satire, and social commentary, Geekenders delivered a unique performance that appeals to a range of audiences.»
-The Peak

«Empire Strips Back is an ambitious, riotous, scandalous production that shows just how powerful a small group of dedicated people can be.»
