GABRIELA SOSA uncertified reviewer June 10, 2017
Not your typical mob scene. Touching message about loyalty.... full review
KATIE CONRAD uncertified reviewer June 10, 2017
Great dramatic play that tackles big themes without being stuffy. Gangsters dealing with shifting roles, friendship, aging, and identity. Everyone has either dealt with the same issues directly or watched someone struggle with them. It's fun to see 2 wise guys face it with lots of profanity. It builds to an emotional punch really well. The 2 actors connect very well and are very genuine.... full review
RICHARD GRAVES uncertified reviewer June 11, 2017
Fine, character-driven performances fuel this touching, melancholy story of an aging Mafia gangster, of former renown, in the sunset years of his life, facing hardship and the reality that his glory years are behind him. His only companion, seemingly, is his longtime dedicated employee - a Mafia bodyguard. It may be hard to believe that a play about a couple of aging gangsters can have a big heart...but it does! Highly recommend!... full review
THEA RIVERA certified reviewer June 11, 2017
The story had great humor and was also very touching. Subtle moments. Time to breathe but never dragging. Conversation twists and good flow of conversation with a lot of heart. Get ya right in those feels! These actors work great together and I sure hope they continue to work together in the future. ... full review
ZACHARY JOHNSON-DUNLOP certified reviewer June 11, 2017
I found this play engaging from the start. Schumachers sound design helps transport the audience into an old apartment waiting to be abandoned and the two actors make you want to stay there. The dynamic between the two characters ripples with years of unspoken understanding that is tested through out the show to great effect. A quiet storm of a piece that will keep you from looking away. ... full review
EMILY DECKER uncertified reviewer June 13, 2017
This one-act play establishes an easy, relaxing tone for the audience that transports you to another place and time. The actors have developed a dynamic relationship that feels natural and well-earned. And Three Clubs has the perfect ambience for this mobster drama, with its plush red velvet and in-theater bar. ... full review

LAUREN BYRD uncertified reviewer June 14, 2017
The actors both fit their parts so well, it was excellently cast and executed. The venue, set, and sound design serve the story very well, creating the perfect environment for this story of an aging mobster and his long-time body guard as they struggle to adapt to the changing world. The relationship between the two men is poignant and dynamic, it kept my attention for the full story and still managed to surprise me with the twist at the end. Great show! ... full review
CAMI HAMILTON certified reviewer June 11, 2017
This production really stands out among Fringe shows for drama. Audience is drawn up into an intimate piece exploring a quiet crisis in the lives of two mobsters. Jack Stroud and Eric Blair have great chemistry, giving performances that are both masculine and vulnerable. Austin Schumaker envelopes them in a soundscape that heightens the reality of a high-rise apartment that must be vacated. Nathan Ondracek directs this 1991 work with perfect pacing; a great ear for the rhythm of conversations. Don't miss this!... full review
ED SHARROW certified reviewer June 16, 2017
An enjoyable performance that everyone can appreciate. I left thinking about friendships and the running banter we develop with those who remain closest to us.... full review
