Kate Huffman was brilliant. ... full review

The Elephant Theatre Company has used its home-field advantage to stage a show during the Hollywood Fringe Festival that is so professional it could reasonably be considered a tryout for an offering later in their regular season. If that happens, I’ll be extremely excited to see the moody, brooding, and complex The Boneyard & Talisman a second time. In the meantime, this is one current production that should be on all Fringers – and all non-Fringers – short-list right now.

Liked it alot. Intriguing, fun. The fem role in the first act started out very shrill - which made me worry about the upcoming performance, but she toned it down to an amount still appropriate for her (scary) character soon enough.... full review

I wanted to see this show because it was directed by David Fofi, even though I knew nothing about it except it was a pair of one-acts with a central theme. While it was wonderfully directed, with an incredible performance by Kate Huffman in both shows, I found very little that connected the shows. True, they were both set in post-apocalyptic LA, but the only connection I could see was that each had a character who stole from the dead. In actuality, they couldn't have been more different. Still, the show is worth seeing, if nothing else but to see Kate Huffman as a dying Natalie Portman, too proud to accept an offer that could save her life. ... full review
