"This almost two-hour wild ride through “Perry Playland” transports the audience into another dimension of rainbow fluff, heart-shaped confetti and larger-than-life anthropomorphic household objects — it’s part fantasy, part hallucination and thoroughly high-camp Perry."
"In the opening number... the singer descends from the ceiling while a giant hand pinches her by the bow on the back of her sequined coat. She looks like a Barbie doll plucked by one of those mechanical-arm arcade games. Once placed onto a gigantic bed, she proceeds to sing her 2010 hit, “E.T.” It’s pure camp!"
A performance from Katy Perry’s PLAY was produced for Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen’s CNN “New Year’s Live” on December 31st, 2021. See performance below:
"Opening night of “Play” featured set pieces that rivaled the singer’s own outsized personality... the production was larger than life."
