STEVEN LESSER certified reviewer July 01, 2024

I want to wish one of the biggest congratulations on the production and performance of rectangles. It was amazing to see it in the way it was originally intended where Maddie and Cleo had a theater to themselves and not have to worry about the act who went before or the act that went after. The sound design and production were brilliant and the joy and passion on Maddie’s face performing such an original and personal piece of art is evident with every block. Congratulations.... full review

Absurd, hilarious, weird- this show was wild and gross in the BEST way possible. I super loved this show and I loved how Maddie is unapologetically themselves. ... full review

Maddie holds nothing back— her total personal candor has an authenticity you can identify with. Her observations and riffs are equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking. “Bottom”line: what goes in can come out … in beautifully odd ways. ... full review

Colorful, beautiful, and bizarre. Like if Bjork hosted an episode of Pee Wee’s Playhouse about anal fissures.... full review

Maddie is truly an original! A unique gross adventure of blocks and poop! Her voice is so unique and her brain is so strange. Silly, weird and original. As a people pleaser myself it is cool to see a physical manifestation of blocks being the thing that is sharp and weighs you down. When you look through the silliness of the show you realize how sad it is, which is a great way to tell story. ... full review

What a unique theatrical experience this was! From her clownish props, costuming and set design to her soul-baring lyrics and surreal, original melodies, this young woman’s inner struggles with people-pleasing and learning to rid herself of toxic blocks is cathartic!... full review

Yes! This is what Fringe is all about! Highly Recommend! So glad this was my first show to start of the season. Personal, experiential, musical, comical, movement, and a strong storyline. ... full review

Maddie Mutations has an artistic voice unlike any I've ever seen. I was captivated the entire time. As a recovering people pleaser, I thought... is this f*cking play about us? Yes. ... full review
