Review by ALEX SCOTT

My overall impression

I give props to both Alexa Giuffre and Sean Burgos, because they’re very committed to their characters, but the 20 minute “EXPERIMENT” may not be for everyone. Melanie Wehrmacher’s play has little to no exposition, and doesn’t allow it’s character to really change between the beginning and end of the play. As a result, it’s characters, regardless of who’s playing them, come across as a little bit unlikeable. Maybe it was just me, but I didn’t understand what I was supposed to take away from this show, and I wasn’t exactly sure who it was trying to reach, or what it was trying to say. Most of the trouble lies within the script that has an all too familiar story, resulting in a pretty unoriginal, predictable play.

"Birthday" by Michael David Ker

A comedy about one man losing it all in a year - his parents and home - and finding his way to rise from the ashes in an attempt to celebrate life.

A Solo Show with Jokes...and Espionage

Saurabh Kikani was the nerdiest, most awkward teen in the world. In 1996, he was in a summer program at Oxford where he happened to see the movie Mission:Impossible, and his life changed forever. This is a solo show with jokes...and espionage.
