RICHARD LUCAS certified reviewer June 05, 2017
The subtle and brilliant trick to “Hey, Hollywood…” is that - being a show about having ADHD - it actually has ADHD. Rasika Mathur uses storytelling and improv to walk through her recent ADHD diagnosis as liberating knowledge that has led to an understanding of why things in her past hadn’t turned out so well. But there’s an underlying and constant truth beneath that acceptance as she cleverly weaves a touching metaphor of one who cannot go in the “right” direction, performed as a wayward sea turtle teetering on the edge of a cliff, amongst the very funny scenes she sets of opportunities missed or blown. There’s an almost anti-solo-show, pleasantly unkempt feel about the evening which she rides with ease and unapologetic enthusiasm. Thus the... full review

Rasika is a powerhouse performer that folks need to see. She's so comfortable onstage and such a good improviser (she casts audience members and is so incredibly present with them). She's fun... deep... FUNNY... and touching (sniff... there's a beautiful baby turtle through-line which was a lovely decision in regards to structuring the show). Not sure what she'll do next, but I'd watch a sketch-style solo show from her in a heartbeat, but who knows what she has up her sleeve... or... what the world/this industry has in store for her. ... full review

I found the show fascinating, especially as we had brought a teen relative who may have ADHD with us to the show. The bell rang and the lights went of. It was also interesting to see the levels of ADHD within ourselves, and seeing something like this is the first step on dealing with it. So the show was enlightening and entertaining and a great start to the Fringe Festival. I just wish there was a show from the other side: Hey Hollywood, I’ve Got To Deal With An Actor with ADHD! Hustle was directed and developed by Deana Barone (FB), who worked on last Fringe’s 30JJ or Bust.... full review

Bravely honest while never letting the energy or humor fall out from underneath. Rasika's natural charisma is the biggest highlight, accompanied by well conceived metaphors, bittersweet anecdotes, and a boss opening number.... full review

I met Rasika at an audition in 2004 and knew immediately she was a special, charismatic and genuine authentic talent. I'm so pleased she has realized that now, too - she's come to terms with it and sharing her stories, characters and brilliant writing.... full review

Rasika Mathur was simply amazing in her writing and her performance.  She took what could have been a boring personal drama, and made it into a delightful immersive experience that kept the audience in stitches.  As you can imagine from a show about ADHD, it was delightfully disjointed, changing topics rapidly while telling an interesting story about an artist discovering the cause of her "affliction."  See full review at Indie Voice Blog... full review
