“Our Top Ten” – Stage Raw
“Our celebrity-obsessed culture frames these six vignettes by Sharon Lintz, with compelling, offbeat characters whose attachment to elements of pop culture influences their lives in humorous , affecting and often, profound ways. Eric Johnson directs, and draws fine, animated performances from his cast. Stephen DeCordova is memorable –and disturbing— as a respectable, middle-aged man…”
-Lovell Estell III, Stage Raw
“‘Starfucking’ works…The scenes, for all their audacity, are etched with a calm dignity, and clever writing that display a twisted appreciation of the absurdity that expresses itself in what people desire, or tell themselves they do…from the ranks of cartoon artists have emerged some unique talents: Tim Burton, Federico Fellini, and Jules Fiefier with whom Lintz seems to share a certain sensibility…Johnson’s craft is apparent in the trust he shows his cast and the material, a trust that allows him to place before his audience a piece that is not unlike a Japanese puzzle box…DeCordova, opens the piece on the perfect note of understated truthfulness…Kelly Schumann is touching…Blaine Vedros is excellent…Smith executes with stunning skill…Dawn Joyal brings a sweetness and vulnerability to the part…Yoder and Allie bring all the uncertainty these two characters share and forge it into a bittersweet conclusion.”
-Ernest Kearney, LA Bitter Lemons
“Lintz’s writing is crisp and clean and director Eric G. Johnson and his cast keep the show moving at a nice pace. There are laughs and pathos seamlessly bound together.”
-Rob Stevens, Haineshisway.com
“What a fantastic show! Usually I am hesitant to stand at the end of a performance, but I was the first one to jump out of my seat to lead the audience to a standing ovation for this one. These performances were unreal. The actors were truly Phenomenal. The play was extremely well written. The pace was perfect and the intimacy of the space made this an extraordinary evening of theater.”
“The performances are so tight — the writing is impeccable & sooo wonderfully nuanced — & the directing? Just WOW! This is a show I would pay serious money to see at the Ahmanson or on Broadway!”
“Wonderful play…Intimate, moving, funny. Two thumbs up.”
“A refreshing and fun journey into a peoples’ inner lives. Heartfelt, raw, funny and tender…Lovely show, all around.”
From Sharon Lintz, author of the acclaimed comic series “Pornhounds,” called “astonishing” in The Comics Journal, “funny and wondrous” in The Onion’s A.V. Club, and named a “Notable” in Best American Comics 2012.
