DAVID MACDOWELL BLUE certified reviewer June 04, 2018
Look at the poster image for this play, Still and you get a real sense of how this story as we experience it feels. Not the stillness of waiting, nor the stillness of rest. No, this three-person drama makes us feel the stillness between moments--between life changing words and decision, between realizations. Even between the question asked and the answer given. On top of that we have the subject matter--sexual assault, which still remains a matter to avoid rather than confront, to seek excuses rather than understand truth. In this case, the entire work seems to take place in all the still moments described above, a refuge from the "still" also inferred above. A fragile or at least delicate in some ways young woman, her best and maybe o... full review

#MustSeeLA #SeeItLa “I’m the drunk girl, and he’s the victim.” This play pulled me in from the start and held my attention until the lights went out at the end. It’s the type of play that the audience needs a moment at the end to absorb what just happened before they can clap. My suggestion is that you stop reading this now and just go see it for yourself, because the less you know going in the better. But if you want to hear more, read on.

Recommended. Still is so simply written, so sparsely staged, so guilelessly performed. Incredibly powerful.... full review

Sometimes you see a show and you have a brief, but intense emotional experience in the theatre and that's great. While I definitely felt the emotions during the show, I'm going to be thinking about this show for years and I think others will as well. I only wish I had a chance to see this one again! Out of 100+ submissions for folks who wanted to be considered for the award I was giving out, this show moved to the top of the list based mostly on the line from the script it included in it's marketing materials. "He's the victim, Nick, and I'm the drunk girl." Particularly with the #metoo movement, people make really strange (and often ineffective) choices when they talk about rape and sexual violence- it's like there's no attention paid ... full review

tagged as: excellent · a petit-regal · A GEM.
THIS IS A GEM. The actors bring you into their world and keep your attention the entire time they are on stage. Actors are perfect. Dance moves while "naked" rated EXCELLENT!!! The characters continued to change, evolve, mature, etc., as the story unfolded at the end. Totally satisfying (BUT QUITE A BIT TOO BRIEF) petit-regal OF A PLAY. ... full review

A SHOW ON THE FRINGE OF FRINGE?

A show beyond this reality? A one-man cabaret about never, EVER fitting in. Told through four days in the 90's. Described as, "Reinventing the form," "amateur," "musically outstanding," "a waste of time," "earnest, heartbreaking, & real."
