Space, or the Number of Nothing is not your typical play about space. At first, you think it's going to follow the 2001 path of A.I. gone rogue. What it becomes is much more of a soul search for these characters. Watching how they deal with the pressures, loneliness, and the unknown of interstellar travel was an unexpected, but terrific surprise. The actors all conveyed the struggle differently and realistically. The use of media in this show is some of the finest I've seen in not only any Fringe show, but of any show I've ever seen. You really don't want to miss this one.... full review

I enjoyed the play immensely. It drew you in on different levels, made you "feel" with the characters. Their pain and fears, isolation and deeply felt need for human connections. It was very affecting. It extracted a wide range of emotions from both the actors and the audience. You should definitely make it a priority to see the unique and original work.... full review

This sci-fi thriller is well worth the price of admission! There is nothing else like it in the festival!... full review

Though provoking, SPACE OR THE NUMBER OF NOTHING is an intimate story following a crew to their potentially unknown fate, it is a powerful reminder of how small we can actually be in the known universe and that our minutia does not make us insignificant, in fact, it is due to our smallness that our stories are so important to tell. Bravo to Ethan and the rest of the hardworking cast and crew. ... full review

The play is interesting and is worth seeing for the very ambitious technical aspects. If you are a fan of Space/Sci-Fi, you will absolutely enjoy this show. ... full review

For Fringe requirements--a quick show turnaround means simple sets/props--there's a lot of bang for the buck. I didn't quite get it, however, but my wife explained it to me. ... full review

ROM WATSON certified reviewer June 19, 2017
A science fiction drama. It holds your interest because you're trying to understand the mystery, but when it's over you realize it's too cryptic to be satisfying.... full review
ANONYMOUS uncertified reviewer June 21, 2017
Respectable, by-the-numbers Twilight-Zone-like episode, but the piece's quintessential plot-twist is muddy, and the quirky details (a running gag about breakfast, a lesbian romance) distract rather than complement the story. ... full review
