LOVED this show. I am not a theater critic but I enjoyed watching this show. After seeing the performance tonight I felt moved by the each of the character's story and their need to belong to something greater than themselves. It was comedic, timely and well written. I felt transported by to an era my parents talk about all the time. This is a must see.... full review

I enjoyed this show a lot and have to say it was refreshing to see progressive theater here in LA. I thought both actors were really good and had my attention from the time the house lights went down. I will say that I left the theater wanting more from the playwright. Kudos to you for putting pen to paper and putting your work out there for the public. ... full review

I LOVE THIS SHOW! Love Me Richie is a nuanced, superbly crafted play. I love the burlesque element that appears in the show and that the play examines a fading dancer and an aspiring war hero during World War II. Both people display a huge desire to become part of the American fabric but are denied that opportunity due to Jim Crow Laws and personal demons. The play is well crafted by Kenyetta Letheridge and superbly acted by Maryam Myika Day and Michael Ralph. I just love this show! They all do a fine job of transporting us back to the 40's so we can take a glimpse of this often times unexamined lives. ... full review

I saw this show on its opening night and I really enjoyed it. It's set in 1945 and is essentially a love story...with a twist. It's a pretty short show (30 minutes or so) with just two actors (who are AMAZING) and it definitely left me wanting more. I didn't know anything about the show or the actors before seeing it, but I'm really glad I gave it a chance. ... full review

This was a great show and I highly recommend it to all!! With the back drop set in the 1940s (I'm a World War II buff) and the powerful love story, the actors did an amazing job conveying the choices (sometimes good and sometimes bad) that many couples face even today on choosing your family or your hopes and dreams. This show left me wanting more and I hope the playwright makes this into a full production!! ... full review

The actors were charming but unfortunately they didn't have any emotional investment in the characters. While they were comfortable with the physical acting and with each other on stage, I wish that their relationship after 10 years would have been more fluid, expectant, warm, and loving, despite the challenges within.... full review

What can I say, it's the best show I never saw. I wish I had an extra special selection option in the left-hand module of this review form for this show. I rolled up to Open Fist Wednesday evening, hoping I could drop into a random show at a random time, in the very sprit of Fringe, and the cast never arrived! I purchased a ticket, and subsequently got a refund. Perhaps this no show is a HFF first, but it begs the question: would you rather perform to an empty house or not at all? ... full review

"You got me at '1945'"! I, too, love period pieces, so I was very happy with this story taking place during that time and exploring themes in a way that we don't often see (mental illness and the African-American perspective or voice on Patriotism). I would love to see more from this story, it's characters and it's journey. I left the theater with a lot of questions that kept me thinking about the play long after I left. I was enchanted with the mystery of it, with the questions of "what if she...?", "when did they...", "what happened when...". I truly enjoyed the writing, acting and the directing. I'm excited to see what Maryam's (writer) next incarnation of this piece will take...if not for the sole reason of seeing her character El... full review

Overall, I enjoyed the show, although I think it was too short. The story was well written but could easily be expanded to provide the audience a little more information. The cast was incredible and mostly believable, although the shortness of the play didn't really allow the characters to develop. Would love to see this play again in a longer format.... full review
