Yes, this is a MUST SEE show! Besides the range of emotions you experience throughout the show, what really moves you is the message it brings. Real people, real war. It's hard to talk about acting here because it doesn't feel like it. It's REAL. Great ensemble, amazing directing, incredible lighting and sound. Come see it and appreciate peace!.. ... full review

There aren't words for what a brilliant, poignant, honest, beautiful ensemble piece of work TRACERS is. This is a MUST see! Do yourself a favor. The overall talent of the cast is like nothing I have ever seen. But what's most? I was reminded tonight of the things that truly matter in life. Cheers to those who missed the Freedom Bird. ... full review

OUTSTANDING. I could watch this play over and over. There is a lot of comedy and a lot of drama. The actors give a very truthful performance and you are right there with them in every scene.... full review

I wish I could select more amazing than "Amazing". We sat in the front row, and I had no idea what I was in for. The actors were compelling, the set was perfect, and the lighting created such an environment that completely engulfed you. I want to rave about the ending, but do not want to give anything away. It was clearly hands down, the best ensemble dramatic piece I have ever seen at Fringe, and one of the best pieces of theatre I have seen in a long time. Much applause to a well talented team. This production clearly deserves more press, and I believe every performance should be sold out. I am glad to see Tracers is part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2015. My fingers are crossed for some well deserved Fringe Awards...... full review

Tracers is one on those plays you must see before you die and this production is outstanding in everyway. Go experience what it was like to live as a grunt in the Viet Nam war. Fred Hirz, Army Viet Nam, class of 72 Tracers 1987 ... full review

Tracers is a FANTASTIC production, and a must-see at this year's Fringe. The story itself is something that can never be forgotten, and the actors do a phenomenal job at bringing the audience right along with them into the war zone. I laughed, I cried. Everything from the use of music to further the depth of the moments to the brilliant lighting that made the stage truly breathtaking. Not sold yet? Then you're crazy! Go see this show!... full review

This is a fantastic telling of the truths of Vietnam. This play has excellent pacing with a slow burn of character arcs as we see these young men slowly realize the gravity of their situations and how they must adapt in order to survive in such a dire environment. Each actor gave %110 to their roles and were able to not only pull you into a setting, but convey a state of mind that these young men went through day in and day out. By the time it got to the intense climax of the play it effected me on a gut level, feeling physically affected by the experience you are brought through. Couple that with excellent production value and sound design and it becomes a very engrossing play to watch. Cannot recommend enough. ... full review
MARCO VIRGILIO certified reviewer June 24, 2015
This is an amazing show! I watched it twice and both times I loved it! The story is at the same time entertaining, funny (at times), sad and moving. I was impressed by the use of the lights and sound that made this production feel very real… As an audience member I felt to be on the stage with the characters, fighting with them, and going through their same pain and emotions. It's really a great show. A must watch.... full review
JACOB BEITTER certified reviewer June 24, 2015
This is the second time I've seen this show, and this awesome cast was EVEN BETTER than last time! They never fail to surprise me in new and pleasant ways. Each moment feels real and honest, and they always find new impulses every night, which is perfect for Tracers - a play that calls for constant honesty and focus from the actors. This play also needs a massive amount of comradery within the cast that fills the entire theatre and even includes the audience. And trust me, the comradery in THIS cast was infectious. So much energy filled the theatre, and you were with the characters every second. When they were partying, you felt like you were partying with them. When they were in the middle of battle, you were terrified for their lives and y... full review
