DOUG GREEN certified reviewer · June 07, 2015
Original, fascinating set of monologues, linked in mysterious ways. Very well-performed, intriguing, and thought-provoking. And I can't imagine any audience member not wanting to see it again, to view more specifically how it all works. ... full review

This show was smart, unique, funny and surprisingly moving. It is extremely well written--which is often not the case with smaller theater productions--and the caliber of actors was exceptional. They were all so strong and consistent that it almost isn't fair to single any one of them out. This show captures the real essence of what local theater can be--spare, simply staged, powerful and memorable.... full review

Delves into the strange corners of peoples' fantasies and vulnerabilities. Reveals the way people see themselves in the world around them based on imagination and desire. A refreshing and fun journey into a peoples' inner lives. Heartfelt, raw, funny and tender. Diversity in the pacing. Nice range of character types. (You'll laugh! You'll cry!) Lovely show all-around: writing, directing and the performances.... full review

This show appealed to me because of the intriguing title, I had to see it! The fascinating tales told by the characters was a deep and truthful look at how everyone can fantasize and idealize events in their sexual relations. The acting was superb and directed cleverly. You will take a seat and relax into the bedroom of storytelling. Truly a stimulating and amusing play!... full review

"Starf*cking" was an amazing night of theater. The acting was consistently fine; the direction, flawless. There was an array of rich performances drawn from a dark, but often hilarious screenplay. I especially enjoyed Tony Devon Smith's amazing turn as Ruben, Stephen DeCordova's poignant Martin and Dawn Joyal as the doomed Patty. The theme of a bleak Hollywood peopled by the lonely and starstruck seemed like a modern take on Nathaniel West's "The Day of the Locust." Beautifully done. ... full review

I've never experienced something quite like this. I've been to plays, but this was just so much more personal! The cozy little theatre out me in front row seating, and half the actors performed directly to me. It's as if the whole thing was solely for my own purposes, and I was truly learning about them as people. I loved this so much. After we got drinks with the cast and I found out this was only their first performance of this show! I thought it was soo good... Looks like it will get even better. I'll be back for the final showing, I can only imagine the difference will be entertaining to percieve. *round of applause*... full review

JEN B certified reviewer · June 12, 2015
Wonderful play made up of a series of linked monologues (and one two-person scene), expertly performed by stellar talent. Kelly Schumann and Blaine Vedros shine especially bright in their pieces, though the acting is fantastic across the board. Director Eric Johnson's sparse choices are top-notch. Intimate, moving, funny. Two thumbs up. ... full review

What a fantastic show! Usually I am hesitant to stand at the end of a performance, but I was the first one to jump out of my seat to lead the audience to a standing ovation for this one. These performances were unreal. The actors were truly Phenomenal. The play was extremely well written. The pace was perfect and the intimacy of the space made this an extraordinary evening of theater. There are 5 performances left and I am going to try to make one more of them just to make sure I didn't miss anything (that's if the show doesn't sell out by the time word gets around this weekend)!... full review

Staf*cking was beautifully done. The play, a series of monologues along with a 2-person act, flowed together in a coherent and seamless way. The show was engaging and funny and at the same time thought-provoking, drawing the audience into the intimate thoughts of the colorful characters. The acting was top-notch. Quite simply, a phenomenal show. ... full review

The subtly intertwined stories of Starf*cking were delightful to watch. The last 3 stories were a particularly compelling blend of humor and vulnerability. Well done!... full review
