LAUREN SIMON certified reviewer June 06, 2017
What a wonderful show! Jennie Fahn is a powerhouse on stage. As the first show to open Hollywood Fringe '17 for me, Under The Jello Mold could not have been more perfect. Jennie pulled me into her world with her mother and I was enthralled. What sort of person leaves post-mortem instructions "under the Jello mold"? Masterfully directed by Tom Cavenaugh, Jennie tells her story with flair, highly entertaining characterizations, so much humor, depth of emotion and even song and dance. And surprises! I both laughed so hard and was so deeply moved! Captivating, hilarious and poignant! A must-see show. Go see it.... full review

If you haven't already, make sure you make reservations to see Jennie Fahn in "Under The Jello Mold" at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. A deeply moving and funny performance, ably directed by Tom Cavanaugh. Fahn is a loose and honest actor, the kind that puts the audience at ease, and she has an impeccable natural sense of comedic timing. She manages to make everyone laugh as well as cry a little in this just-right 1-hour one-person show. It's one of those performances that directors or agents see and say, "I want to work with HER." ... full review

This heartfelt solo show is 80% laugh out loud comedy, 20% heartwrenching truth. Jennie performs all characters with clarity and dexterity-- unlike less refined productions, here, it was never unclear when Jennie was playing herself, her mother, or a variety of other characters, and it was often possible to lose myself in the story, forgetting it was one woman telling it. It was often hilarious, with the personality of the characters and liveliness truly coming through, which made the more poignant moments all the more impactful. Upon later reflection, I'm even more impressed with the masterful storytelling-- what feels like a very natural, organic unraveling of perhaps unrelated anecdotes later reveals a deeper purpose for each within a gre... full review

JADE BEAUVOIR certified reviewer June 11, 2017
This was such a fun, inspiring show. Jennie Fahn takes us on the journey of growing up as the daughter of Joyce, an over-the-top Jewish mother obsessed with looking her best and men with black hair. Heart-felt and honest, Jennie shares the good, the bad, the ugly, and most of all, the funny.... full review
