AURORA CULVER uncertified reviewer June 05, 2016
A wonderful one person show, allowing the audience to take their own personal journey through the performer's own experiences. Commodore is a perfect asset, creating a comfortable atmosphere where the audience lowers their guard and truly is present and listening.... full review

MATT RITCHEY uncertified reviewer June 12, 2016
A fantastic meditation on what it means to deny being yourself and how to find the way back to what you truly are. Drew Vandiver is not only an amazing writer and performer, but has had some incredible experiences, and I relate to so much of what he's done and been through that I was personally very affected - I feel we all will be: this isn't a story of someone finding themselves as an artist, it's the story of us finding and not being afraid of our selves. ... full review

Drew Vandiver is a natural storyteller and his charisma will draw you in from the start. His story is one of disillusionment, loss, wrong paths, new beginnings and philosophy.

RACHEL FLANAGAN discover hollywood magazine certified reviewer June 12, 2016
Drew Vandiver studied Theatre, Literature, and Mathematics and has been a sawmill worker, a bouncer, a high school teacher, an accountant, a drug dealer, an actor, manager of the world’s largest Victoria’s Secret, and a writer among many other career paths. He has quite the life experience, work experience, and flair for comedy that it is no surprise Here There Be Dragons takes through laughter and tears as he relays some of the stories from his life so far. Commodore, the Ukrainian pup that has been by Drew’s side since 2012, adds a little extra to the story with his own commentary and wandering through the audience looking for attention and a few good belly rubs. As Drew guides the audience through various touching points in his life from ... full review
MONICA HAFER certified reviewer June 14, 2016
I'm going to be looking forward to more from this writer. This was an incredibly funny and touching show. It felt like the best advice you'd get from your crazy, ex-alcoholic grandfather who is also buddha. Will be waiting impatiently for what comes next.... full review
