These actors lucked out. The script is very good and gives each of them some fun moments! It flowed well. The director made some great choices and elevated a good script to a fantastic show. And it's stocked with some of Fringe's favorite actors. Courtney Sara Bell should be looked at closely and considered for the "Best of Fringe Actress" category. Nailed it. Theater Unleashed knocked it out of the park on this one. ... full review

I really, really liked it! A great dialogue about a great topic with great actors. Didn't recognize half the cast when I ran into them the next day - a testament to the characters they created. A wonderful balance of comedy and drama.... full review

Relationship plays almost always have something interesting to offer and Sleeping Around is no exception. I truly enjoyed the ways the stories were connected which gave the piece more of a fullness and made me want to invest in the characters much more. The cast is definitely having a blast doing what they love which is a treat for the audience. Some great one-liners from out of nowhere knocked me off a good way and the running time was perfect for the material. A fun, funny and interesting play that offers many perspectives on how we relate to one another...even beyond sleeping around!... full review

Very engaging material and well acted. It's a meaningful look at a variety of relationships--why certain relationships come together while others fall apart. The show isn't just about sex--it definitely dives beneath the surface. Really enjoyed every actors performance and highly recommend seeing this show!... full review

Theatre Unleashed knows how to entertain. Sleeping Around uses the tool of circular storytelling to explore the dynamics of open relationships and intimacy. These "scenic snapshots," which rotate through different couples, is always kept fresh and engaging: from emotional highs to lows, there is no corner untouched. Today's relationship culture is obscenely complex and constantly changing: Sleeping Around explores this with great fearlessness and heart, challenging us to reflect on just what "intimacy" is all about.... full review

Nice vignettes that cross over to other scenes, made me wonder if the order could be different every show, like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and we see a glimpse of 1 again. If they start with 4 then 5, 6, 7, 1, 2, 3. Makes me wonder, which is a good sign. Not so much as a choose your own adventure, but it'd determine whether the show would end on a good or bad outcome. Eeeesh, un0fringe-ing-beliebable, I have definitely been up for more than 24 hours. Goodnight, you Fringey mutha phuckas. Don't forget to add this hour to your night… 'if you know what's good for ya!' ... full review
KIRE HORTON certified reviewer June 07, 2015
What an amazing , insightful, smart, funny show. It plays like a collection of short stories. That all mingle together as a connected narrative that perfectly glides from one story to the next r. You end up feeling like you know each one of these characters even thoguh you will never hear them say each others names. On the surface it may seem that its all about sex, which is sex and fun, but it really about all the feelings, motivations, consequences , and understandings that arise from such experiences. Running only an hour it doesn't lag for even a second. You will be captivated by these people and their stories. It might even make you think about the people you've encountered. No matter how deep or loose your connection with each person y... full review
MATTHEW MARTIN uncertified reviewer June 13, 2015
Wow! What a show! I was completely blown away by Theatre Unleashed! The ensemble in this show is at the top of their game as they masterfully weave 9 scenes together to give the audience an incredible glimpse of "sleeping around." There are hilarious moments! Touching moments! And even "WTF" moments. And with Abella's text and Soroka's directing, this troupe does not let it stop from start to finish! Truly a must see at this year's festival!... full review

An all-round excellent cast (with a few heart-breaking standouts) telling a story of love, and sex, and hope blended with despair. Yeah, with that mix it had better be a comedy. full review
