DOUG GREEN certified reviewer June 07, 2015
Original, fascinating set of monologues, linked in mysterious ways. Very well-performed, intriguing, and thought-provoking. And I can't imagine any audience member not wanting to see it again, to view more specifically how it all works. ... full review
FRED JOYAL certified reviewer June 08, 2015
This show was smart, unique, funny and surprisingly moving. It is extremely well written--which is often not the case with smaller theater productions--and the caliber of actors was exceptional. They were all so strong and consistent that it almost isn't fair to single any one of them out. This show captures the real essence of what local theater can be--spare, simply staged, powerful and memorable.... full review

Delves into the strange corners of peoples' fantasies and vulnerabilities. Reveals the way people see themselves in the world around them based on imagination and desire. A refreshing and fun journey into a peoples' inner lives. Heartfelt, raw, funny and tender. Diversity in the pacing. Nice range of character types. (You'll laugh! You'll cry!) Lovely show all-around: writing, directing and the performances.... full review
TARA CRITES certified reviewer June 08, 2015
This show appealed to me because of the intriguing title, I had to see it! The fascinating tales told by the characters was a deep and truthful look at how everyone can fantasize and idealize events in their sexual relations. The acting was superb and directed cleverly. You will take a seat and relax into the bedroom of storytelling. Truly a stimulating and amusing play!... full review
MICHELE JOHNSON certified reviewer June 08, 2015
"Starf*cking" was an amazing night of theater. The acting was consistently fine; the direction, flawless. There was an array of rich performances drawn from a dark, but often hilarious screenplay. I especially enjoyed Tony Devon Smith's amazing turn as Ruben, Stephen DeCordova's poignant Martin and Dawn Joyal as the doomed Patty. The theme of a bleak Hollywood peopled by the lonely and starstruck seemed like a modern take on Nathaniel West's "The Day of the Locust." Beautifully done. ... full review
JEN B certified reviewer June 12, 2015
Wonderful play made up of a series of linked monologues (and one two-person scene), expertly performed by stellar talent. Kelly Schumann and Blaine Vedros shine especially bright in their pieces, though the acting is fantastic across the board. Director Eric Johnson's sparse choices are top-notch. Intimate, moving, funny. Two thumbs up. ... full review
K OLSON certified reviewer June 18, 2015
The subtly intertwined stories of Starf*cking were delightful to watch. The last 3 stories were a particularly compelling blend of humor and vulnerability. Well done!... full review
CYANNE MCCLAIRIAN certified reviewer June 20, 2015
BRILLIANT! Such a hidden gem in this festival, but truly NEEDS to be seen! 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! ... full review

It was not what I thought it was going to be, so there was a nice surprise. And it was deeper than I thought it was going to be. The characters were good all around. Definitely recommend. ... full review
