It's a fantastic musical that really explores the world of mental health and makes you think. So happy it was the first show i saw this Fringe, perfect way to kick off the festival! Lots of talent in this cast, you won't be disappointed! ... full review

I cannot say enough good things about Trixie: The Musical. I went in with extremely high expectations, and they were still exceeded. Emily Decker is an exceptionally talented writer, singer, actor, and mental health professional. Her show is smart, witty, and incredibly touching, helping you explore feelings that you may not have known existed. Her cast was perfect, bringing incredible life to very real characters. If you see one show this year at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, or anywhere at all, please see this one. You can validate me later.... full review

This play wildly exceeded my expectations for a Fringe Festival show. It's a fully-formed work of entertainment that tackles big issues in a deep and innovative way, all while making the whole crowd bust up laughing. Most impressively, it made me forget that I was watching a musical (I generally dislike musicals, so that's a crowning achievement). TRIXIE is definitely worth leaving your house for. And then some. Go see it.... full review

This show is profound, tender and brilliantly funny. It gives voice and song to a swath of mental illnesses through irresistible characters, all under the "care" of the bent but well-meaning Trixie, and it does so with sparkling humor and deep pathos. Insights are offered, but are rendered with enough subtlety and complexity, that I have been thinking about this show since I saw it three days ago. I want to see it again, I want to think about it more. I suspect Emily Decker is on to something that is a rare and amazing thing, a show that is not only absorbingly entertaining, but unexpectedly healing as well.... full review

KATIE CONRAD uncertified reviewer June 19, 2017
Many Fringe shows feel like a workshop or first draft of a production. Trixie is among the few that feels fully formed and pretty much perfect. It starts as a ridiculous musical with glitter and ribbon dancing, then slowly transcends the schmaltz to a cathartic and emotional ending. The humor hits on many different levels, ranging from corny/over-the-top to very human moments where the audience is cringing at the familiarity. It's an extremely satisfying show and is worth seeing multiple times as the whole cast are a treat to watch and have their own humorous moments in the background while the main action happens. ... full review

You've got one more chance to see this show! Do not miss it. The story, the level of talent and the commitment to this project blow my mind! All of the actors brought their A games. The writer and star of the show, Emily, is out of this world talented! The entire crowd was laughing the entire show. The writing is not only funny, it's smart too! ... full review
