Excellent work all around. Fun scenes, excellently executed, and well directed. I had feelings about the relationship of a pumpkin and a penguin. I never thought I'd type that sentence.... full review

Director/Writer Aaron Kozak presents several original one act scripts. He's assembled an all star cast that take the audience on a laugh filled journey through the course of the show. Stand out performances by Eric Cire and Travis Joe Dixon are highlights of the show!... full review

Worth your time. Short Plays for All Your Problems twists life around for fun and clever insight. Some shorts take a behind the scene look at the human psyche for a knowing smile and others just make you laugh out loud. Excellent writing and solid performances.... full review

This was an interesting collection of skits/ short plays. It had lots of adult language so not for kids.

Kozak's pieces channel everything from the avant garde solitude of Eugene Ionesco, the absurdist dialogue of Christopher Durang, the dissatisfaction of Wendy Wasserstien, and the chronic dysfunction of Sam Shepherd. In summation, all the geniuses of modern comedy. And... he does it well.... full review
CAROL NACE certified reviewer June 10, 2014
This was a series of sketches. Some could have been good—for example, Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man being interrogated for murdering someone—but the language was horrific in almost every sketch. Plus, they started and ended over 15 minutes late. This is a real problem when you are trying to schedule multiple shows in a day. ... full review
