Review by SEAN TARAS

June 05, 2017 certified reviewer

What I liked

Quick-moving dark comedy with punchy writing, memorable performances, and a smart sense of humor as well as a social conscience. Scarlet is a character you will not forget.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

Very current concept, funny without being goofy, pointed satire of both present day politics and reactionism.

HOLLYWOODN'T is Lisa Verlo's solo show and personal journey across Hollywood's unsettling sexual landscape. Directed by and developed with Jessica Lynn Johnson, it is a musical memoir recounting Lisa’s experiences on the casting couches of LA.

See Mary Birdsong (Reno 911) as Melania!

“Democracy in shambles? Why not put on a show? That’s the inciting impulse behind Trump Family Special, [a] concatenation of Franklin D Roosevelt’s fireside chats, the Partridge Family’s Christmas albums and the apocalypse.” - The Guardian
