Swept Away

mika koontz · July 10, 2017
I loved the show! So worth the drive. It was colorful, intimate, and well written, with a twist in the plot. The main actress was amazing, and I loved the chemistry between the actors. It's a nice break from tv, to see actors performing live, just for you. Should do this more. ... full review

SECRET IDENTITY CRISIS

kyle lau · July 10, 2017
A very important show that speaks on things that most Americans (even Asian Americans) don't consider. More importantly, Paul is a powerful performer who showcases dynamic range in this one-man show. Multiple characters with an exciting through-line / message and a fantastic reimagining that will leave you wanting more. ... full review

SECRET IDENTITY CRISIS

a d · July 09, 2017
Paul Yen realized his nearly decade dream w/ Secret Identity going from pen to live stage performance and I was honored to witness it last night. He captured the modern day Asian man's struggle to find his own unique identity w/in media by drawing from his own experiences, referencing history, and sprinkling in just the right amount of humor and audience interaction to make the hour flow by nicely. The show reminded me of seeing a young Will Yum Lee in a similar venue when he first started. P... full review

Cheek (and other stories)

chris clonts · July 08, 2017
When people ask what my ideal of a Fringe show is, I can now forever tell them about this one. Essentially two parts funny, one part romance, this series of three unrelated pieces held attention solid for the 40 minute run time. The staging was simple but perfectly effective, the direction laser focused on giving the actors the moments they needed to bring these tight stories to life.... full review

Solomon: King, Poet & Lover - A Play About 1 Man & 700 Wives

jessica lynn johnson · July 08, 2017
Wow! This is a truly athletic piece of solo theatre! I applaud solo artists who understand that this genre is far different than storytelling. Solo Theatre requires theatricalization to bring the story to life on stage. Marcus understands this intimately and executes it masterfully as he utilizes every space on stage with beautiful motivated movement. Also, his confidence in his delivery puts you at ease as an audience member. You trust that he is going to take you on an entertaining ride that he... full review

This show is powerful and moving, and funny. You can't leave it without reflecting on the universal experience of being a woman in this society. We journey with her as she sheds light on her demons and moves toward healing in the telling. Brava!... full review

Got A Minute? (The Spoken Opera of Life)

patty miller · July 07, 2017
I'm always skeptical when it comes to unpublished plays- but I was completely blown away by this show. The true life stories that these actors so bravely share were incredibly touching (I teared up several times and laughed a lot too). It was a wonderful experience to get to hear what matters most to fourteen strangers and what/who has impacted their lives so greatly. It puts a lot into perspective for the audience member and reminds you that no matter what path a person has walked in this life, ... full review

My Janis

christina evans · July 06, 2017
Arianna explores a moment in Janis Joplins life that is full of inner conflict, temptation and the need for artistic expression. Arianna plays her with deep physicality, commitment and honest exploration. It is an interesting moment in Janis' life, ending with her hesitant choice to launch into the spotlight. A unique and heartfelt piece. ... full review

Shattered

lara ingraham · July 06, 2017
Shattered is a deeply personal yet universally human story that deftly mines the performer's traumatic experiences to offer healing, insights and comedic relief for her as well as the audience. The black box setting really highlighted the intimacy of the subject matter and allowed the viewer to witness the subtleties of each character. ... full review
