My overall impression

Assistants the Musical is a FANTASTIC show! It wonderfully depicts what life is like for the assistants in the TV/Film industry who are rarely seen or credited for their hard work. It tells a story that is easily bypassed to those who don’t know what an assistant does. I, in fact, am a personal assistant and could relate completely and wholeheartedly to this show! The storyline was spot on, and the characters were wonderfully relatable. They took us on a journey filled with highs and lows of what life is really like out here in LA.

The music and lyrics were heartfelt, as well as hilarious, and all around strong and captivating! Bryan Blaskie and Manny Hagopian are brilliant writers and lyricists. The harmonies in the songs gave me goosebumps. The stage picture was also very captivating, especially when all four characters were on stage, and one can tell C. Ryanne Domingues has a great eye for detail, spacing, and placement.

The actors were phenomenal!! All four of them, Daniel Amerman, Ali Axelrad, Abigail Eiland, and Andrew Thomas, have killer voices, exploding energy, and superb acting chops.

I highly recommend seeing this show!
