52 pick up was a stunning piece of theater. I had been looking forward to seeing this show, but I wasn't really sure what exactly was going to happen. I was fortunately surprised at the phenomenal performance I saw. The two actors I saw were simple. It was so real, as if they weren't acting. They moved and talked naturally which resulted in a feeling of relatability for the audience. The scattered order of each scene encourages the audience to connect events in their head and leaves them on the edge of their seat. The most important aspect of this show is that it makes you feel something. It makes you think. Theater has the tendency to stray away from that nowadays. 52 pick up nails it. Bravo!... full review

52 Pick Up should be on everyone's list to see. This beautiful show tells the story of a young couple and shows you every angle of a relationship,and what really makes it special is that there are 52 scenes and each one is written on a card and shuffled and after every scene a new card is called out making the order of events in each show completely different. The two actors I saw were both amazingly talented and made the relationship feel real and I found myself relating to them and this show. This is great for any audience and you'll find yourself, like I am, wanting more and coming back to see it again. Another thing that makes this show special is that there are 4 different couples so who knows if when I go back I'll see the same couple ... full review

Acting 4 Camera presents a very interesting way to see a play – 52 scenes presented totally out of order based on a shuffled deck of cards in 52 PICK UP, now at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. The concept is that 10 actors learn all 52 scenes, but the couple that performs in the show each night will never be the same two actors so all 10 shows will be unique for even though the scenes are memorized, they will be done in a different order at each performance with two different actors. The only improv happens in the transition between scenes to make them fit together logically. The show’s host has the deck of cards which he shuffles at the start of the show as he explains the concept to the audience. Each card has a scene title on it, wit... full review
