DAVID SHERRY certified reviewer June 26, 2013
Frank Blocker is one of those rare actors who can embody a character with total conviction, only this time he embodies at least 17 of them. Great writing and a great performance!... full review
JOSE COREA certified reviewer June 17, 2013
This show was fun to watch. There were many beautiful moments, including a standoff between a tenant manager and a transvestite homeless person that kept screaming "I am Jackie Onassis!"—I will definitely remember that expression for a while. The story was a little slow at times, but Frank Blocker is an amazing performer. He is worth checking out.... full review
BART TANGREDI certified reviewer June 24, 2013
Frank Blocker is a tour de force as a solo performer. His writing skills are equally as impressive. He creates an entire world of thoroughly entertaining characters. He does this not only through extraordinary vocal work but through his physical and movement skills. Even though he weaves his way through so many characters jumping from one to another, each one is so clearly delineated and defined that you are never confused as to who is who and it is easy to follow and be engrossed in the story. A must-see.... full review

You're probably wondering the same thing I was....A one man show for 70 minutes? How am I going to be able to handle this? This guy pulls it off. He told a great story, had some fun characters, kept the process moving and above all, he was entertaining. I really admired his ability to do it. Congrats my man. Worth seeing if you have the chance. ... full review
BRETT AUNE certified reviewer June 26, 2013
Wonderful show. Blocker's vocal gymnastics are incredible to watch. Each character is completely distinct, and fully realized. It's also a master class in how to create atmosphere using very few props; beautiful direction and attention to detail from both actor and director. The story was engaging and fun, and the whole thing is so creative that I sat there enthralled during the show, and amazed afterward.... full review
