WENDY WANDERMAN certified reviewer June 02, 2018
I thought it was really good. An extremely well-done one-man show. It was thought provoking and Evan McNamara did an excellent job portraying a variety of events and characters - some very funny - that affected his bereavement caused by the death of his father.... full review

Evan was really on his game in this wonderful one-man show. His great talent let's him sift through each character like a seasoned professional. The directing by John Coppola was also fantastic to watch as with most great directors, you barely notice the directing.... full review

Evan McNamara brilliantly plays multiple characters in this tour de force about loss, regret, and redemption. For a character who starts off as a self described "C*&^T", I was surprised to care so much about his plight that by the middle of the piece, I was crying with sorrow, and by the end, with tears of joy. (That is no exaggeration.) Great acting and directing.... full review

#SeeItLA Last Christmas is one man’s journey through grief and the holidays after the death of his father the previous Christmas. To say that he isn’t handling it well, is an understatement. To quote the character himself, he is a, “bit of a cunt.” After the first ten minutes, I was prepared to hate this show. I was in no mood to sit and listen to someone complain about everything for an hour. However, the pay off at the end was well worth the journey.

I called my mom and dad after I left this show. This was such a fun and engaging story with a beautiful message that was all delivered very well. Speaking of engaging, Evan did a fantastic job creating the different characters and giving them unique voices and personalities. He really brought this story to life. This well-written script, along with its great direction and acting, gives for a very special theatrical experience. I left with a warm heart and a thankful life. Go see this show!... full review

An amazing show about navigating the treacherous waters of grief. ... full review

I loved this play. It's a peek into the running dialogue that we all have swirling around in our heads, but never actually say. Except here, Tom says all those things out loud which makes him very easy to relate to. It's a visual essay that expresses how coping with emotional pain is universal, and that processing that pain is the only way out. Well done to all involved in this production.... full review
DENZIL MEYERS certified reviewer June 15, 2018
Super writing and excellent acting really bring this story to life. A gruff but likable regular guy struggles with his feelings about his girl, his friends, and his family. Very relatable and heartfelt. This is one of my favorite shows this Fringe.... full review

The actor in this one-man show was nothing short of delightful. The different voices of the people he was having conversations with made it easy to follow, and without the differences it could have got confusing really quickly. The show is full of those crazy but hilarious emotions we all go through while trying to get over a loss. The energy in the play overall was done wonderfully. A very fun story to watch!... full review
