JAMES KIRKLAND certified reviewer June 28, 2019
Brilliant, absurd, comedic, graceful dance show and a heartfelt, hilarious personal story. Both shows were great and worked surprising well together.... full review
THOMAS WORTHAM certified reviewer June 28, 2019
It was refreshing to feel challenged a bit while watching 2 for 1. Alyssa Virker's avant-garde approach to her show was bold and took its time shaping the message that came together nicely by the end. Angela Beever's show was unapologetically intimate and brave in a way that felt relatable even if you had not lost a parent under such brutal circumstances. Both women should be applauded for exposing themselves through their art in such a fearless and courageous way. ... full review

This show delivers in what is advertises: two completely different performances, for the price of one, by two very talented women. The first show is experimental using interpretive dance to underscore a character's emerging feminism, and the second is a LOL comedy about death. I mean, come on, you need to see this.... full review

2 FOR 1 is two very different shows that are equally funny, creative, and most importantly heart felt. You'll laugh, maybe cry, and be amazed at their creativity. A must see!... full review

Both shows took my breath away. Truly some of the best work I've seen from performers in a long, long time. Each show achieves the difficult task of striking the right balance between hilarious & heartbreaking. The first piece, Alyssa's on the "simulacra," is like a feminist take on Black Mirror; in fact, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that her 30 minute show is far more thoughtful and powerful than anything Black Mirror has made in years. Her show is one of the most powerful depictions of the toxic relationship between the media and modern day feminism that I've ever seen. The second show, Angela's "My Dead Mom's Funeral," is a hilarious yet moving piece that everyone needs to see. Angela's wit, creativity, & masterful acting c... full review

I'm not one for plays in general, so watching two shorts for the price of one was perfect for me! I liked that the plays didn't really focus so much on the environment/sets but physically embodied both their worlds themselves but in such different ways. ... full review

Two powerful women in their own 30 minute solo shows take you on a journey of reflection, recognition, laughter and inspiration. Alyssa and Angela have kept their 2 For 1 shows a little secret, and it's that mystery that sets you up for a pleasant surprise. The shows are very different in nature but in the end brings us all to what being human is all about; finding our own place in the world through it all. These stories will leave you in that great place of looking at your own life, how you lead it, how it came to be the way it is and was. Go see!!... full review
KATE ADOLPH certified reviewer June 15, 2019
The two shows are so unique and different, yet somehow work together perfectly. Alyssa and Angela were both clever and genuine; their shows were moving, thought-provoking, and belly laugh-inducing. I was truly impressed and can't wait to see what they do next.... full review

I am still thinking about the emotional impact of these shows days later! I have to admit I didn’t know what to expect when going in to two back-to-back one woman shows, but trust me, it is beyond anything you could imagine. These performances are creatively risky, emotionally compelling, and dare to tackle big themes and societal issues. And on top of that, they are riotously funny! You will be mystified. You will cry. You will laugh. You will walk away with a new perspective. ... full review

A surreal exploration of human pathos- what makes us move and why. The woman- Alyssa Virker, I believe- communicates through wild movement and lightning flashes of character, maintaining a quick tempo throughout. The second play, with Angela Beevers, maintained the rapid fire, and was a supremely satisfying next act. She explored the darkness with a steady eye, and she found gold in unlikely places.... full review
