Review by DAN JOHNSON

My overall impression

The show is an interesting collection of three pieces. 1 monologue, an unrelated scene, and then another monologue that is connected to the first.

The show is doublecast so that two actors are playing four characters, however, I think the show would have benefited from having a cast of four. There was a bit of sameness from having two actors play parts that also were connected thematically. Each actor, as well, seemed more strongly suited for one of their roles, but not both.

The last monologue, performed by JP Rapozo was an absolute stunner. The text and the performance were perfectly entwined. The struggle and denial in the piece was heartbreaking. I am eager to see more of that story, as there is so much to explore.
