Overall Impression....Outstanding. Smooth and clever dialogue. Brutal and honest. If the mind is open and willing to listen one is left with a feeling of understanding. This show I felt was not a time to judge war but to truly listen to a solider, a chance for a solider to be heard. I do hope this production leave audiences with having the utmost respect for those who truly give up everything (mind, body, soul and at times faith and life) to serve an entire country. Thank you to the cast and crew for telling this story and to those within the production who have served this country thank you from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your serve! ... full review

Powerful storytelling and a visceral performance, make FOXHOLE STORIES: a must see for this years 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Evocative and captivating, I found myself mesmerized, on the edge of my seat the entire show, this is such an important story to tell, and writers Matthew Domenico and Katherine Duff breathed so much raw authenticity into this piece, it is simply a can't miss experience. Brock Joseph, as T-Dog might simply be the best acting performance, I have seen at any Hollywood Fringe Show, if there was a category of "Best supporting Actor" I would give it to him, without hesitation. The standing ovation at the end was well deserved, there wasn't many dry eyes, including mine by the end of the show. ... full review

Twist, Pull, Smoke, Run-Motherfucker- Run is this generations Tracers and may be one of my favorite pieces of theatre. What starts off as a cute metropolitan take on the ‘soldier-back-home’ narrative is given resonant tension with the addition of a non-verbal military presence sitting in on the scene. Director Chris Game deserves ample applause for building tension throughout the entire piece leading to a climax that reinvigorates the medium. When the non-verbal marine (played by Brock Joseph) dressed in fatigues awakens the show takes flight. Given Joseph’s performance, the Fringe community really does need to start legitimately thinking about Acting awards for future seasons. His performance is stunningly beautiful and at times heart... full review

If you are looking for riveting and compelling theater do not miss this play. Though the subject matter has to do with PTSD and a soldier's struggle after coming home the play has universal appeal. The fearless writing, courageous performances and expert directing make Twist Pull Smoke Run-Mother-Fucker-Run a great theater experience.... full review

This play itself is a fascinating piece. Knowing it is derived from actual experiences of soldiers adjusting to their return home, there is an authenticity to the storytelling that automatically adds weight to the play. The memories being brought to life are exciting and disturbing. The play shifts tone, radically at times, from heartwarming to gut-wrenching, all depending on what the character Adam is remembering or trying to suppress. It is intense, thrilling and sometimes heart-breaking. ... full review

There is much that the American people wake up to every morning. A avalanche of hashtags invade the day vying for attention, but by the time you’ve gotten up for work, taken a shower and eaten your breakfast, a Veteran has committed suicide. A study done by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs showed that roughly 22 Veterans were dying by suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes. Some sources suggest that this rate may be undercounting suicides. Well, timing is everything as they say and the time is now to showcase the plight of the American Veteran. Thank you Matthew Domenico, Katherine Duff, Brock Joseph and Director Chris Game, for breathing life into not only the personal stories you tell, but the stories of those who can’... full review
