A really fun theatre experience- a comedy that goes to "uncomfortable" places, making you feel a lot of disdain, pity, judgment, and other things for the characters, but caring about them enough to be engaged. Well acted and well-cast across the board. Sharp writing and solid comedy. Do people not list gun warnings on shows anymore? Sudden loud gunfire should be listed in the program same as you would list strobe lights, nudity, etc... especially this day and age, but really any day and age. Ok, look, I really enjoyed this show, but you know how when you want to give something a high grade, like it might get an A, but it has one super-glaring issue so you take off at least a grade, maybe two? I read all the reviews to see if anyone h... full review

The play really delved into what felt like ALL of the current political, religious, social, and familial topics with direct force and no meandering about it. It was funny and really made you think about your beliefs, er, well "opinions", on many topics. The cast did a great job with their energy and it was the perfect venue for this show. ... full review

One of the best shows at Fringe this year! I was laughing and intrigued at the same time. This is a type of show you will be thinking about for a while after seeing it and in the best way possible.... full review

You guys. I had to write this review immediately because I couldn’t run the risk of anyone going another moment without knowing the glory that is White People Drinking. The writing is tight. The performances: on point. Subject matter: see performances. In an anything-but-basic show, we see an ensemble of talented actors share endearing, fearless perspectives of humans making their way in a post-aTrumpalyptic America. There is no judgement, only laughter, thoughtfulness, and equal-opportunity truth-slinging. Do yourself a favor, have a drink (or two), and enjoy this humbly provocative piece of art.... full review

Sugimoto has crafted a modern-day dark comedy that is paced to perfection. The writing here is amalgamation of playwriting and screenwriting that settles into a nice balance of the two mediums putting all audiences in familiar territory. Additionally, the characters are written with realistic conviction—as these people talk on stage you can hear your friends, relatives, neighbors or even yourself speak. As part of the play’s main objective this ruckus dinner party hits upon a surplus of current political, social, religious, societal and controversial issues. Although none of these topics are necessarily fully addressed, but much like in the play, they are mentioned to spark a conversation and even allow you to confront your own beliefs. It m... full review

ROSS BURAN certified reviewer · June 02, 2018
Relentless and thought-provoking. It challenges the audience to lean into the conversation topics that we'd never enter into even with our best friends. Thoroughly impressed and enjoyed the experience. Still don't know if I'd bring any of this up at my next dinner party, but quite enjoyed the different voices crossing various lines labeled taboo. ... full review
