RICK KOPPS certified reviewer June 16, 2014
Having seen "Ravens and Writing Desks" twice at the Garage Theater in Long Beach, and loving it, I was curious to see how it would play at the "Hollywood Fringe Festival." With no set, this time, and minimal lighting, this production brought even more focus on the talents of this incredible cast. Lead by Tian Walker as Alice (of "Alice in Wonderland"), we went down the rabbit hole into a world that was fun, sexy, and sometimes scary. What a ride! I was thinking of going to see it again…would that make me a stalker…hmmm.... full review

"Why is a raven like a writing desk?" No one really knows, including myself. 'Ravens and Writing Desks' is a piece of genius inspired by Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland." The play contains key characters that will be familiar to anyone that is used to Disney's "Alice in Wonderland" such as: the March Hare, the Mad Hatter , the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts and special appearances by Peter Pan and others from Neverland. If you walk in and out of this play confused or feeling like you missed something then that is the point. You're in Wonderland and the place isn't supposed to make sense or even use normal logic and reason from the world that we have grown accustomed to. There isn't a lot of heavy dialogue as ... full review

Since my son is one of the actors in Raven's and Writing Desk, it is hard not to be very impressed and enthusiastic about what a great show the group has created. The dedication, skill and intensity of all of the actors is remarkable. I would like to see this play move to a larger venue so that a greater audience could experience the amazing talent of the group!!... full review

Really good show. Lively, fun, exciting. The lady who handled the tickets was very rude and impatient. Also, I bought a button for five dollars and no one had any idea what I was talking about. I guess that was a waste. If you are interested in making it right, it would be nice to have it mailed to me. Thanks ... full review

Serene, tender, touching, exciting, scary, and emotional this movement show is art imitating life at its finest. Packed full of talented artist every performer and musician in this production is worth recognition. From beginning to end a flawless harmony of all the stages of the theatre, no job was left uninspired. Genius choreography and directing with the incredibly docile actors make a spectacle that one would only usually experience with a cirque Du Soleil show. This show reminds me that if there were any indication that magic existed in this world it would probably be in the theatre. Part of this magic is the show uses subjective story telling applying all of your own inspiration as an individual in this funny and strange world. The aud... full review
