TARA DONOVAN certified reviewer June 06, 2016
This show was fun! Definitely a good time. It was at times cheesy, funny, creepy, moving, and overall- a good time. Congrats on an imaginative production!... full review

Why do I love Fringe? Sure, there are one-man/woman shows, comedies, musicals galore. And they're often dynamite, fantastic and genius. But every once in a while, something comes along that REALLY tries to be different, unique, strange and unusual. This year, you're already part of one of those. Because Shine Labs has been quietly watching you from the shadows--and you're a perfect candidate to learn "The Truth". All you need to do is accept your chance to be a test subject during this year's Fringe festival and off you go. Really, that's all I want to tell you about this particular experience. I mean, yes, it's theater--sort of. It's really a lot more than that. It's sort of a LARP (Live Action Role Play) experience. It's sort of a w... full review

A highly enjoyable and unique experience. A day later, I am still thinking back to things witnessed and interactions had. I was moved, amused, and occasionally a little bit confused. I highly recommend checking out The Truth.... full review

This was one of my top picks for this year’s Fringe. Knowing that the writer goes to the same haunts and other immersive experiences as I do made me really excited that some of those influences would be used..and they were. This is one of the better truly immersive experiences. You walk around Hollywood, but this is not a touristy walking tour. You first meet with the doctors from Shine Labs and they tell you about how we were selected for a reason (they say they were watching us and all we do). Then we were told to use the headphones and a soundtrack that is given to you. This will help you read people’s thoughts. On your adventure, you come into contact with various people and they tell separate parts of the story. Some people in our... full review

Kudos to the brave souls who put a new twist on what a "play" is. Fun, inventive experience. ... full review
JEFF LAUB certified reviewer June 23, 2016
A fun, engaging show, that ranged from moving to funny to scary and made great use of technological integration. Admittedly, it was also at times confusing (it didn't help that one of our scenes was interrupted by a pickpocket making a getaway and nearly getting hit by a car. Hollywood!); I can't say for certain that I followed the thread of the story all the way through, but the mood and the immersion made for a very rewarding experience (and I LOVED the ending). Great job to this team on pushing the boundaries of what a Fringe show can be! ... full review
AARON DOWNES certified reviewer June 26, 2016
A very unique interactive experience. As we walked the streets of Hollywood, led by various characters, it was hard to tell who was an "actor" and who was a normal pedestrian that got caught up in the walking play.... full review
