ZAY WARFIELD certified reviewer June 09, 2024
A slick, neurotic frenzy that is tightly wound and hilariously unhinged. Emily Markoe has a laser-focused yet frantic, delicious energy that cuts like a knife and leaves you laughing til you [don’t] puke. A must see. ... full review

Emily is hilarious and captivating in this aesthetically adorable, and cognitively rich solo show. It’s cute, clever, deep, and intriguing. The production design is beyond delightful. Every single piece of pink and purple, however relevant or absurd they might be. Markoe invites the audience into a captivating mash-up of play time & time capsule, as she journeys through the memories preserved in her reimagining of her childhood bedroom complete with conversations with her equestrian action figure therapist. She’s wonderfully expressive and charismatic as she vacillates through the many vignettes that compose the show. Great sound design and costuming as well. It’s everything from silly to serious. Wholly intriguing, with a sprinkle of existe... full review

As a fellow phobia-haver, I was bowled over by this show. Emily’s going to have you in tears laughing before choking you up with one of the funniest and realest portrayals of how a phobia affects you I’ve ever seen. This show will devastate your abs with roiling chuckles before shattering every misperception you’ve had about phobias.... full review

I LOVED this show! Eccentric humor, surreal settings, and deeply personal and vulnerable. Unexpected and totally up my alley. Emily is so funny and such a smart writer. I appreciated her portrayal of OCD, and felt the show was extremely relatable. I was totally engaged for the entire 50 minutes (which can sometimes be tricky for us neurodivergents ;), and I couldn't wait to see what was next!... full review

PARKER MILLS certified reviewer June 21, 2024
I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this show! Emily has a real gift when it comes to storytelling! She let us in, and was absolutely fearless and funny in talking about things that in other hands could be overly dark or “dramatic”, everyone in the audience had such a smile on their face- I felt I walked out of there knowing who Emily is at her core... full review
