ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 03, 2018
Phenomenal show. The writing was so natural it felt like you were really just a fly in the wall of the characters' apartment. Deals with complex issues without being heavy-handed and while adding honest humor for some levity. The performances were wonderful and the direction tight. This is a quick show that will make you think, laugh, and even might jerk a few tears out of those dusty old ducts. I can't say enough good things about it.... full review

A layered and well acted story that looks at ugly truths of today's entertainment in terms of whitewashing. Sharp and to the point it's a theatrical conversation that will generate ones between the audience afterwards.... full review

SKIN JOBS is a searingly honest look behind the curtain into the darker corners of an all-to-often glamorized and white-washed industry. ... full review

I loved this show! It's an intriguing, thought-provoking play, and yet highly entertaining. It shed light on a serious issue in the movie industry that very few people know about. It was riveting, finely acted by the two actresses, and a deft script by Jim Vejvoda. The turn was so smooth you hardly felt it -- until you did. Just an all-around great show. ... full review

This just might be one of this year’s hidden gems. Both actors delivered sparkling performances, and the chemistry between them was very real. ... full review
DREW PETRIELLO certified reviewer June 15, 2018
Not only does this play wrestle with some very important questions in our modern zeitgeist, but the escalation of conflict is masterful - just when I thought the play was easing up, it would twist the knife a little harder. Made me uncomfortable in a good good way.... full review

SOO CHYUN certified reviewer June 20, 2018
Brilliant writing. It touches on the subject of controversial issues and the effects it places on the actors involved in it. The portrayal of the two friends' conflict was so real. Skinjob delicately addresses differing viewpoints through both characters while taking the biases of social status in mind. Kerri and Viv are right in ways while also wrong in others too. The writers spared no expense on this 30-minute show through a rich narrative. I enjoyed every second of it. ... full review

Strong, character-driven dialogue tells a story full of hot-button topics in a way that never feels preachy or like an essay.... full review
