Seeing Groundwork made me think if I saw good theatre once a week I might be a better person. Definitely catch this show - really delightful! ... full review

Long after the show is over you will remember the haunting quality of Paul's troubled state of mind as he plans a garden and finds the connections of his new passion with his own life, the history of the earth of the people on it. A beautiful and moving journey.... full review

THIS is what a solo show can be. We were comparing it to Murder Blood Bear Story, and it's such a different show, but they both do what needs to be done, which is tell an honest story with characters with dimension. Perspective. Every solo show artist needs perspective on their story, and this one has it.... full review

Mike Ostroski delivers an inspiring performance. As the stage gradually becomes a garden, his character feeds the audience with a universal piece full of amazement, excitement, frustration, disappointment, and hope, always. The universe is his garden.... full review

I don't think there is anything negative that anyone can say about this piece. The emotions are raw, the passion is tangible, and the humor is perfectly placed amongst such painfully realistic mindsets we all find ourselves in at one point or another. I was immediately hooked by the story. Mike Ostroski is a never-ending pool of energy, and I don't think I have seen anyone piece together such beautiful chaos on their own before. You forget that Mike is an actor, and you begin to believe that he is just another lost soul searching for the goodness in the world (which I am sure he is in many ways). Bravo to the whole team behind this piece. You have created beautiful art that boldly and unrelentingly reflects reality.... full review
JASON REED certified reviewer June 26, 2016
Mike Ostrowski delivers a thought-provoking, enlightening, heart-felt piece about the status quo of our presence on Planet Earth. The gardening metaphor works poignantly with our human growth and the stages of life. Strongly recommend this enjoyable, entertaining and well-executed performance. ... full review

I found this to be a really thoughtful, complex, but emotionally involving show and also something entirely unique. From the pre-show music to the banjo to the references (Poor Richard's Almanac??) it had a voice that is often missing in theater. ... full review
