MAGGIE WHEELER certified reviewer June 08, 2014
Run don't walk to this beautiful , evocative, magical evening in the theatre . Into The Fog embarks on an emotional journey from the moment the lights come up .The actors take you with them and never let you go . There is beauty and mystery , story telling born of the simplest means that leaves you appreciating every movement , sound , light and texture. Don't miss it!!! ... full review

After watching the play, I watched the film and I see the inspiration, but I also see where Source Material went off in their own direction – you kind of have to. The cartoon is about a hedgehog drowning in a body of water (obviously it’s about much more than that but you get my point). To me the piece was about breaking through confusion – breaking through the fog of life – breaking apart – being pulled in different directions: which makes sense coming out of the perspective of post-adolescence.... full review

This is what the magic of theatre is all about! It's a gorgeous piece of theatre with beautiful dancing, magical staging, and imaginative storytelling. Although the story telling is much more visceral than it is concrete in anyway (I'm not too sure what the play is about), Into The Fog is very much worth the trip. Loved every minute of it!... full review

Stunning, emotional, uplifting -- one of the best things at the Fringe, and one of the best things I've seen in 5 years of LA theatre. A story (or several connected ones) told through movement, dance and music with very few (almost no) words -- this isn't simply a dance piece, though, but a fully-realized display of the magic of theatre. The actors are all riveting, providing mesmerizing performances. Simply but powerfully lit, amazingly choreographed, this 50-minute show will take you on an emotional journey if you allow it to wash over you. It certainly filled me with wonder.... full review

This is by far my favorite show at the Fringe Festival this year. It's nature completely allows each audience member to take away whatever he/she wants from it. The choreography and music are absolutely beautiful, and I can't even begin to imagine the creative process for this show! I really hope it gets extended - I'd see it a hundred times over. It's one of those shows that, no matter how many times you see it, you will always find something new. It goes home with you, just as all amazing shows should.... full review
BRIGHT EYES PRODUCTIONS uncertified reviewer June 28, 2014
Imagine that you found a book, but not just any book. A very special, magical book which is also a doorway into a mystical land, a land where the shadowy revelers draw you into strange and enticing, even bacchanlian, rituals. Spooky, yes, but also thrilling and very, very theatrical. The highest "WOW" factor I can give. I left with my faith in theatre renewed after walking out of so many Fringe productions in dismay. See it if you can. INTO THE FOG is what theatre is supposed to be.... full review

ENRIQUE ACOSTA certified reviewer June 16, 2014
I have no idea what I just watched, but I don't care. I was mesmerized. I don't actually like ballet, but I could not look away. I was swept up by emotions I did not understand and by the lyrical athleticism of the dancers. A moving (if slightly confusing) time.... full review

Truly captivating...movement as a form of beautiful expression with maybe 2 sentences throughout, I was completely engulfed on this emotional ride. Sparse staging, imaginative use of little to no props and musical numbers that contained as much mystery as the choreography. Loved the wonderment of it all...do not miss this show!... full review

It's hard to know what every moment is saying, but people moving through intentionally lit space is a fascinating way to get us to wonder.... full review
