APRIL WISH certified reviewer June 10, 2019
This show blew me away. Fiercely creative, incredibly revealing, hilarious but thoughtful. Both of these women have an incredible mastery of being concise. They chose every word, every movement, cleverly. While attacking two very different themes with intelligence, giving the audience a new perspective on feminism and death, it was also extremely moving. Awkward in the best ways, bold and quirky, the shows complimented each other perfectly. ... full review

This is the epitome of a fantastic Fringe experience! Something superbly creative using all kinds of theatrical standards and props in fresh and fun ways. Dancing, video, puppetry, the big box of surprises, wigs... and the performances polished, honest, and charming... oh, and absolutely hysterical and heart wrenching all in the same breath. ... full review

Wow! I am so glad I saw this. I left the theatre in tears and I just wish the lights had been off for longer so I could have cried as much as I wanted to. Both pieces were absolutely amazing and so creative, huge congratulations.... full review

Two one-woman shows for the price of one! "Simulakra" by Alyssa Virker (hope I spelled that right). Alyssa's show is a perfect mash-up of visual and physical storytelling. Quirky, funny, and charming, with a great message in the end. I really love this kind of approach to performance. "My Dead Mom's Funeral" by Angela Beevers. Angela's show was comedy gold. There are a thousand shows about loved ones and cancer. Many try to pull it off as heartfelt comedy. This show pulls it off in spades! Absolutely loved it. You owe it to yourself to get a ticket for this great duo of shows.... full review

These are two great women who have put together very different but equally compelling experiences. I'm very glad to see that they're getting some recognition because they definitely deserve it. This production connects two very different ideas into a sharp, exceptional hour of theatre that everyone should go see immediately.... 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

Brilliant, absurd, comedic, graceful dance show and a heartfelt, hilarious personal story. Both shows were great and worked surprising well together.... full review

Two engaging, experimental, and insightful solo shows, performed by two writer-actors with strong stage presence and wonderfully weird approaches to their craft.... full review

One of my favorite shows at fringe this year. What a perfect way to end my fringe viewing schedule! Absolutely beautiful, and very relevant to Millenials especially. Almost the whole audience were Milennials and there was something really powerful about that. I’ll be watching whatever these women continue to make because damn, that was good art. ... full review
MARLA BLACK certified reviewer July 01, 2019
Engaging, hilarious, this is the epitome of the perfect Fringe experience. Two immensely talented women present two completely different yet perfectly paired shows. I laughed, I cried, and marveled at these two powerhouse writers and performers. I loved this show :) Alyssa's use of movement and mixed media helped tell a story that every woman can relate to in the most unexpected, unique and just really f*cking cool way. She is an fiercely talented performer with an incredible knack for impressions. Angela's show was heartbreaking and hysterical, she shared her beautiful vulnerability and grief peppered with precise one liners. Her dead pan delivery was impeccable as she delivered her phenomenally written piece. ... full review
