Reviews for “F*ck Tinder (a love story)”
“Enthralling… Rodwin is a phenomenal writer… reminiscent of a cocaine high… [but] never feels vulgar." -StageAndCinema.com
“There are very few edgy storytellers with his gifts out there right now… Masters of the form like Spalding Gray and Eric Bogosian… David Rodwin does deserve to be mentioned in such company” – Better Lemons
“A smart funny show… and his writing is sharp” – Stage Raw
“Fuck Tinder is one of the best shows I’ve seen in five years at the Fringe… It’s as though he has nailed himself to the post-modern sex & love cross and is suffering for our sins.” – Bill Ratner 8-time The Moth StorySLAM winner

N.B. *ALL PERFORMANCES WILL START EXACTLY ON TIME.*
There is no parking lot. You must find street parking. And there are multiple theaters in the area. Plan on taking 15 min to find parking and walk to the theatre. And plan on getting there 10 minutes before the show.
*So if there’s a 6:30pm curtain. Arrive at 6:05pm.*
