GRAYDON SCHLICHTER uncertified reviewer June 08, 2015
I definitely recommend this show, but I don't want to tell you too much about it, as the reveals and turns add so much to the overall enjoyment. I am very glad that I went into it largely blind, so I could take the journey one step at a time. Michael Lopez moves effortlessly through the narrative and the various characters inhabiting The Inside Edge of the World, and the simple staging heightens the skill with which he brings the audience along, transforming the performance space time and time again, occasionally with some well suited props and devices, but more often simply with his body and voice. During this show you will laugh, scratch your head a few times, and at least once or twice recoil in horror, but I shall say no more ... full review

Great performance and storyline.... The actor really takes us on a journey inside a mad mans brain.... Which seems schizophrenic as he has conversations with his dog! Overall well done! ... full review

Michael Lopez is a captivating performer with a unique presence and a gift for making the most bizarre, darkest circumstances warm and human. This play exemplifies this; you'll have no idea where it's heading, but you'll be grateful you went on the ride and honored to have Mr. Lopez as your guide! ... full review

Wow! I really enjoyed "Inside Edge of the World." Michael has written a challenging multi-perspective performance piece, and pulled it off splendidly. He creates narrative drive and dramatic tension with incredible creativity, and balances the dark with the light exactly when it's needed. I highly recommend this show!... full review

I saw this show while waiting to see another show and I am so glad that I did. Michael created an entire world and a few characters while it just being mostly him and a stage. It was hilarious and full of suspense too!!... full review
CHARLOTTE CHANLER certified reviewer June 13, 2015
I loved this show. It was super different, and there were moments where I thought 'what the hell is going on!?' But, it was engaging and interesting to watch from the moment it began. Excellent story telling, and there was one visual cue that will literally blow your mind and make you feel like you are tripping on acid and fell down the rabbit hole, which I highly enjoyed. Great job!! ... full review

LAUREL MINTER uncertified reviewer June 14, 2015
What a hoot! This show was funny, touching and soooo imaginative. The various characters were well defined, as Michael played each one. The dog was charming. One surprise after another. I normally merely tolerate one person shows but found this genuinely entertaining and sweet balm for a Friday night. ... full review
KARINA WOLFE uncertified reviewer June 14, 2015
Michael is an incredible performer. A solo show can be one of the most difficult types of performance to tackle (and watch) but Michael transitions between characters effortlessly and its a joy to watch. The story and his acting is so specific and intriguing. My only issue is I wanted it to keep going! Definitely recommend checking it out!... full review

Michael has done a fantastic job making both an interesting and entertaining show. It's a one man show so he does all of the characters and he does them well. I never knew where the story was going so it was quite an enjoyable ride. I highly recommend that you see it. ... full review
