Jurassic Park was as cold-blooded, oversized, and all-devouring as the dinosaurs it kept us waiting, and waiting, to see. So there's a hilarious thrill in watching John Skelley send it up in this one-man show, taking on all the ridiculous accents and implausible plot twists, all the while rooting against the cute little children. His props are ridiculous, his performance is pleasingly maniacal, and the man never stops moving and delivering dialogue straight from the source. Of course, the secret is that one has to have affection for the material to bring it down with such passion: It's an homage to fromage.
