I Am Not My Mamma
Actress Neecole opened her life up and shared it with her audience. Many of her scenes allowed the audience to reflect and relate within their own life. I enjoyed the play and would return to future plays performed by Neecole....
The Last Five Years
What can I say, I loved this play! The acting was spectacular, and the singing was fantastic. I particularly loved the performance of Nate Aylworth who played the role of "Jamie." This young actor is truly destined for greatness in the theatre, and I can't wait to see his next performance. But what do I know, I'm just his father....
I kept running across the various members of Fierce Backbone throughout the Fringe, but had been unable to attend any of their shows except Texas Loves Lyla! I am so glad that I was able to carve out a few hours of my time and that I picked this particular production to attend - it was soooo worth it!
Mandy Dunlap was brilliant as Suri in the opening number, Gayby's Playdate. The writing, directing and acting were all above board. It wasn't until the end of the skit that you realized it was...
Making Love Over There
This was a very interesting piece of theater. I went into the performance not truly understanding what it would be about, and was still confused at the end.
What I was not confused about was the quality of the acting. Both Patrick Riley and Zoe Chao turned in great performances in a myriad of roles with the central theme being the pursuit of love.
It was funny, emotional, serious and breathtaking. I was most impressed by the opening scene, where they stood next to each other under multip...
Great plays come across once in a blue moon. Rise is definitely one of those great plays.
It is most remarkable and noteworthy that this is the first play drafted by writer Cal Barnes. I believe he may just be the next Arthur Miller.
The direction of Aaron Lyons is also quite evident, and continues his reputation as an exemplary performer and director. Last year he starred in Pulp Shakespeare, which was selected for extension during the Best of Fringe.
But the true stars of this produ...
This speaks volumes to the description "Art imitates life"!!Wonderful, realistic and riveting portrayal of the human condition, the dynamic of relationships between man and woman, injected with humor and heartfelt emotions. The actors displayed tremendous talent and drew in the audience in a very intimate theater setting. I had the pleasure of sitting in front of the front row, very close to the set, and it made me feel as if I was on the vacant lot with them, in a poignantly personal way! My lon...
I was intrigued by this play, and had to see it - it didn't hurt that the play was only 25 minutes long. I have attended plays three times that long that didn't impact me as much.
The concept was relatable to practically everybody. The play centered around dinner conversations at three tables in a crowded restaurant. At one table was a couple celebrating their five-year anniversary. At the second table was a couple going through a divorce, and meeting to sign the final papers. At the thir...
I Met Someone
It was great fun. I had a great time. Funny and touching....
I Met Someone
Cheryl has written a happy/sad/hopeful rendition of her life and has brought it to life in an engaging manner. The recurring "I Met Someone" line was a wonderful counterbalance to the sad things that come in between. I left the theater hopeful for her and for everyone who struggles being loved....
If Water Were Present, It Would Be Called Drowning
I can't help but find the negative review of June 23rd by "Anonymous" somewhat specious as I attended that day's show and can assure you that no one walked out of the theatre nor was there any gratuitous nudity as implied. Critical reviews left anonymously are the equivalent of a hit and run and I question the validity of such cowardly actions by envious haters. (and no, I did not work on nor was I involved in the production of this play in any way.)
That said, this play was a fast paced and s...
