This show is a MUST SEE! Scott did an outstanding job relaying his feelings and experiences as a gay man raised in a Mormon world and in a straight world. Very insightful and very entertaining. His use of humor was poetic and his stage performance was AMAZING! The audience was taken through a range of emotions while following Scott's journey. Great theatrical production! Well done, Nick Drago! Well done.... full review

I've always known Scott Hislop was talented, and he just took it up to another level! He deftly moves in and out of his emotions, while navigating himself and his audience through growing up as a "Gay" "Mormon" child to his discovery of not having to bear those "Labels" This funny, poignant, intriguing(I have so many new questions for Scott) thought provoking, body of work, which was wonderfully directed by Kelleia Sheerin, will keep you engaged from "Lights Up!" Congratulations on a wonderful production, this is a MUST. SEE. EVENT! ... full review

Damn fine work people! I attended the opening and he crushed it. The audience was him from go. Tight, compelling, poignant and funny, funny, funny! Under an hour too. That's impressive in itself. Scott dances, sings and acts like it's 2nd nature. Strong writing and direction combined with his stage chops make this a sure hit of the festival. ... full review

A thoughtful, funny, heartbreaking, joyous, belligerent and thoroughly enjoyable evening. Well written and intelligently produced, whether you are gay or not you will connect with the challenges of growing up in a world that does not always look kindly on you. Scott Hislop acted, sang, danced and charmed his way through the show aided by Kelleia Sheerin's seamless direction. Kudos to all involved.

I experienced this show to be an exploration of gender stereotypes, addressing harmful social expectations, shining light on religious expectations, all while following one mans quest to be his authentic self. Laughing crying, gripping and smart this show fed all my senses. Inspirational, brave and courageous -the talented lead and creator Scott Hislop not only 'Buries his Testimony' but he inspires everyone else to do the same. Never a dull moment, I witnessed this show to be bright and exciting, and Hislop's 'testimony' has changed me for the better. ... full review
