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
SHARON ELLINGSEN certified reviewer June 05, 2018
We really liked it. The actor did an amazing job of evoking the other characters who peopled his journey home to face his grief. You actually had pictures of them in your head. Humor and pathos. Definitely worth seeing.... full review
CHARLES ZIARKO certified reviewer June 11, 2018
Producer Michael Blaha has brought another Edinburgh Fringe success to LA, a solo show more conventional in style than ECHOES but also a compelling star vehicle, also recast with a local LA actor, EVAN McNAMARA, who commands the stage from the moment the lights go up. Anyone who can do a 58-minute monologue gets my attention, and my respect. Evan himself is more ingratiating than the British character he plays, but as the layers of the story are peeled back one year in one hour he becomes A Guy With a Heart of Gold that isn't at first apparent. This script seems like an ideal monologue for an acting class since it is obviously a series of segments which can be edited or abridged, though that mighty not meet with the approval of the author... full review

Evan McNamara was so powerful and riveting. I could feel the intensity pouring out of him. Evan was masterful in creating the different characters and bringing them to life.... 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
STACY DYMALSKI certified reviewer June 15, 2018
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
