There was a point, about half-way through the 90-minute performance, when I simply stopped looking for realistic motivations and surrendered to the piece as a fever dream conjured by Lisman. Absolute Zero, may have its problems, but it’s never boring. Read full review at the link above.... full review

A very unique love story told in a sincere way. It makes you question normality when it comes to love and relationships. What is normal? What types of love exist? What makes you feel important? I especially appreciated the brave acting and the risks that were taken in telling this story. There's not enough of that anymore.... full review

I came into this play with no conception of what I was going to see. What I found was a play that ultimately is about the meaning of love. What is love--who can love whom--is love fragile--is it forever--is it powerful--is it salvation, or damnation, or worthless? The characters in this play are all circling around the idea of love and that's a play that is really worth seeing. Unfortunately, the play that currently exists is deeply flawed and in need of revision before that greater play can shine through. Choices often seem to be made by both characters and events simply and only so that the plot can continue or change at the playwright's whim. Some directing choices seem to have been made equally for similar expediency or plot-moving e... full review

Legit offering from Writer, Director, Star, Ryan Lisman. Normally I am very leery of anybody wearing those three hats in one show, but it works out here. I wonder what else we might have seen with one or two more pairs of eyes on the piece, but what-ifs aren't a reason to stay away. ... full review

I enjoyed my time watching the show, though the experience was a bit confused. I wanted so badly to laugh at some of the apparent comedy, but wasn't sure if I was supposed to.... full review

It felt like the cast was really bonded over this project and it felt to me that this was the writer/director/star’s personal journey expressed through theater. I appreciated that he had a forum to process this story and collaborative artists to work with and supportive audiences to witness and respond to this piece. Although I felt the writing was underdeveloped and I laughed at moments that weren’t meant to be funny, the show itself was paced in such a way that I stayed with it.... full review
