CASSANDRA AMBE certified reviewer June 13, 2017
The piece as a whole was simple and solid. It was rooted in a wonderfully colorful script and with talented actors who brought fullness and an imaginitive charm to a post-apocalyptic world. Really a special piece. ... full review

A Fringe MUST SEE!!!! They break down the core of the human existence in the most comprehensive, relatable, and beautiful way. Straight up amazing theater. They are most deserving of your time and contribution. I absolutely loved it! ... full review

Pick of the Fringe for me. Fearless in conception and execution. Nikki Muller is insanely talented and Jason Rosario is more than able to match her energy and power. I'm so glad I got to see this show. The physicality is fantastic but it's the language, in short, it's what these two are talking about (you, by the way), that sets this one apart. You're all over this thing. So, go see yourself go through it. ... full review

A thought-provoking experience through the psyche of humanity and what it means to be a "man." Delightful, sinful, and playful, the heartbreaking stories combined with humorous moments of dialogue provide an almost cathartic journey.... full review

It's a pleasure to watch artists who are dedicated to their craft. Definition of Man, is exactly that. Add on to that an incredible amount of physical work and you have yourself a must see at the Fringe. ... full review

A welcome addition to the Fringe festival in pacing, movement, content, and emotion, which were all used very well in telling the story.... full review
STEVE MADAR certified reviewer June 13, 2017
This is a strong physical theatre piece that is as much an extended scene about the nature of relationships between men and women as it is a movement piece. Really enjoyed it!... full review

Definition of Man is a gorgeous, thoughtful and provocative piece that stayed with me for days. XX (Nicki Muller) and XY (Jason Rosario) are the last two people on earth, and yet, even as they need one another to survive, they struggle to communicate as their relationship grows distant from the blooming love it’d once enjoyed. This philosophical gem, developed by both actors and written by Muller, uses language(s), movement, music, and even great silence to explore the existential crises not just in greater humanity and within themselves, but in the micro-moment flashes of a wilting relationship. Brilliant writing, wonderfully performed and deftly directed (JJ Mayes). Highly recommend. Go! ... full review
