What I liked

The live music, the dancing, the incredible connection between the actors and their commitment to their roles. Fantastic use of the space with minimal sets (which worked extremely well), and beautiful lighting design and sound design that only adds to an already delightful show.

What I didn't like


My overall impression

This show is beautiful, full of heart and emotion, and I really enjoyed all of the comedic moments. Each actor fully commits to their respective roles and there is never a dull moment. The writing is unique and fresh, and the direction is carefully crafted in such a way that every intention is crystal clear and has a purpose. The use of live music and dance interwoven throughout is wonderful. As someone whose younger sister identifies on the spectrum, I was blown away by how spot-on Craig Shields and Esther Mira’s mannerisms and speech patterns were. It’s clear that so much detail went into creating this. It’s quite thought-provoking as I am still thinking about it days later. This is a show not to be missed at The Hollywood Fringe!
