VANESSA LEDESMA certified reviewer June 22, 2013
I feel like this play could have really benefited from a more seasoned director and a workshop. The script could've been edited down, or maybe it was the actors' rapid-fire speech that made it seem like they were trying to race through too much script. Whatever it may be, I think there is a lot of potential in the script and in the actors, but the poor direction really did not cast either in a good light. ... full review

This was a show I decided to go to after realizing that I hadn't heard about it. I am glad I did because this show had heart and potential regardless of the directors missteps. One of the missteps was the clumsy scene changes and the inability to inform the actors that when the lights are not on them they are not"on" and to be careful to not steal focus. But other than that this is a show that speaks on this romantic idea of coming to the city of angels. Very much of the monologues were inner thoughts I have had many times. The two male actors, Grayson Wittenbarger and David Fein turn in real and true performances to note. While Tay Allyn as April steal the show with her honest and ditsy performance as April. This is a show worth seeing if... full review

Less a play than a sitcom, or perhaps a web series. This is a sweet effort from a young company that reminded me of watching a high school show. There are scattered laughs, but that's about it. A more successful version of this show would be Third Date. fringeblog.webs.com... full review

The writing was awesome. Lots of witty dialogue that had me laughing seconds after I processed it. Smart with lots of touching moments. Cool commentary on current 20 somethings. Really enjoyed the performances of all of the actors. Each had a shining moment. Would definitely recommend.... full review

More suited to being a short film or web series. Aside from a few nice moments during monologues, the script was cliched and uninventive, demoting the cares of twenty somethings to drinking, dieting and hooking up.... full review
JOSH HILLINGER certified reviewer June 22, 2013
Really fun! Fun characters, fun scenarios. I had a hard time sympathizing the two love-birds - the show pokes fun at people with unrealistic expectations yet the characters demand our sympathy ... kind of tough for me defend. The most sympathetic character, played by Tay Allyn, takes the most shit from the other characters. Well directed, well acted, I just wish the characters treated each other better, or that there was better justification or a bigger payoff for watching these characters ridicule each other. Great performance by ... darn, wish the actors and characters' names were on here ... the friend in the cut-off shorts. This actress had a very strong and natural performance. I just don't believe her character would take Lucy i... full review

Soh-cah-toa The life of a twenty-something creative trying to make it in the big bad world of LA is not something to be envied. Working for tips, crying over the degree or MFA you may never get to use – what’s to envy? And yet, somehow, this disparate group of five friends that people Soh-cah-toa manage to have a good time. It’s a cliché, but it’s true – your friends are God’s reward for your family, and probably everything else in life. So says Lucy, protagonist and soliloquist of the comedy, ‘Soh-cah-toa’. What’s a Soh-cah-toa you ask? It’s the perfect romantic relationship you’re never going to have. Whether it’s because of distance, other relationships or unavoidable incompatibilities, this is the relationship that will elude you ... full review

Jamie Sara Slovon blew me away. She created a honest believable character that mad me feel her experiences. Great job!... full review
VIVIAN GILBERT certified reviewer June 25, 2013
I thought all the characters were portrayed very well. It was a timely statement of today's 20+ year olds. Someone said it would make a good sitco. I agree I especially like Jamie's portrayal of Lucy. It was very believable and honest.... full review
