GEORGE CAPACETE certified reviewer June 11, 2018
I enjoyed this show immensely and I highly recommend it. An emotional moving experience and visually attractive show. Also, thought provoking as in for example with the symbolism behind every color. The humor humanized the often harsh conditions that people with Aspergers syndrome or autism face. It is also hopeful and a reminder that in the end we're all trying to make a human connection or simply communicate clearly with others. ... full review

JOHN MARCUS uncertified reviewer June 15, 2018
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!... full review

So LOVELY and BEAUTIFUL!! I felt that it was a very thoughtful and original show that captured human introspection. I felt that I could connect with both the characters through their journey as they sought to connect with each other despite their own limitations. Would happily see again!!! This is what Fringe is all about! ... full review
