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

Breathtaking. In the context of Fringe this show does a stellar job putting up a quick and stunning theatrical experience. It's worth the ticket price and more, and complete in and of itself, but it was SO good I wish it had a second act. The actors are perfect, the direction and script are lovely. I'm still thinking about this show two days later, especially as a nanny for a child who is on the edge of the spectrum- the depiction of autism and how it varies from person to person is wonderful- the production team has done an impressive job of showing instead of telling- the topic is tricky and nuanced and it is handled carefully and boldly in this awesome new play.... full review

WHAT I NEVER TOLD YOU

Sometimes love becomes transparent, but is it too late? Through the course of one evening, Nick and Alysha ultimately remind themselves how deep their love is. A knock on the door, however, brings the world crashing down around them.

A BIT MUCH: A Solo Comedy

A LOL funny, insightful journey that illustrates how women can comfortably step into their own brand of strength and femininity without compromise. Spoiler alert: it's harder than it looks, but not impossible. June 8, 16, 27 at the Lounge Theatre.
