Anxiety Written

anonymous · June 22, 2018
Gripping theatre and just overall great storytelling. Personal, fascinating, poignant, thought provoking. Not only does it cover mental illness and OCD/anxiety, it’s also about growing up and coming to terms with fear and the world as we know it. Also a wonderful arc, you experience the growth and realizations as the character does. Love, love, loved it. ... full review

A Complete Waste of Time

curtis krick · June 22, 2018
Sharp, funny, wryly observed and very entertaining, the show is anything but a complete waste of time. Steve Chang takes risks in life as well as on the stage. His laid back manner belies a courage that led him on a journey from quitting his dead-end, soul-killing job, through a psychedelic vision-quest in a South American jungle, to the overly bright lights of Las Vegas. Well worth taking the journey with him.... full review

Rayn: An Electronic Burlesque Experience

micah cover · June 22, 2018
It’s such a joy to watch a performer who knows so clearly who she is as a person and performer, let alone an ambassador of positivity and self-respect. Miss Rayn is all those things and more. What a beautiful, unforgettable experience. I am lucky to be her fan, and the audience was lucky to experience her one-woman show. ... full review

The Day I Became Black

kathryn smith · June 22, 2018
One of the most entertaining solo shows I've seen. Bill found the humor in a sensitive topic (race) without losing it's significance. It was like watching a socially conscious stand up comic.This show has the makings of a great 1hour HBO special. I would watch it again and again and bring people back. ... full review

Anxiety Written

margaret katch · June 22, 2018
This is a beautifully told, vulnerable, powerful, funny, sweet story. I believe there’s something everyone can relate to, and most importantly, makes mental illness seem not as scary or isolating. ... full review

marilyn corum · June 22, 2018
This play has potential, but it needs work, particularly of the structure. I was drawn to the play because I wanted to learn more about Victoria Woodhull, but I learned very little.... full review

RESA FANTASTISKT MYSTISK

marilyn corum · June 22, 2018
This play is wonderfully professional and full of humor. Originally, I thought I was going to see a translation of a European play, but as it progressed it I realized it was the product of the brilliant mind of the playwright. I laughed and laughed. It's just a wonderful play. Congratulations Todd Merrill.... full review
