ADAM EVERETT certified reviewer June 14, 2018
Captivating and funny. This show reminded me what went into a radio show in the 1940s. Everything is performed live with almost nothing hidden from the audience. A must see.... full review

If you enjoy old time radio shows with a horror bent, like Light's Out, The Hermit's Cave, etc. this play does a great job of bringing a couple of those old stories to life. ... full review

Lights Out at the Hermit's Cave comes from a place of pure fun. An ensemble of very good performers demonstrate over-the-top means "good" if done well and in the right context. This company, The Hermit's Cave, stages in a dark room horror radio plays from the 1940s. Not as radio plays, but rather acted out all around you the audience, albeit with a foley artist and live musician to add ambiance. It works! It works delightfully, even in a simple meeting room with most of the lights turned off. I can only imagine how spectacularly this concept might work in a different environment--somewhere with brick walls, maybe a stained glass window and/or an alcove! Of course this kind of thing just grabs the imagination of a Dark Shadows/Night Gal... full review
JULIA NEWTON certified reviewer June 24, 2018
Don't let the funny bits fool you, this is an absolutely spooky piece of theater. So well done, so spine-tingling -- for real! Ghost stories in the dark, live foley, perfect acting, and spot-on directing -- what a great night of theater. And prizes! This was just an all-around wonderful show. Bravo, Angela Acuna & crew!... full review
RUSSELL EATON certified reviewer June 21, 2018
Pure joy and whimsical fun from start to finish! This piece bills itself as “an evening of vintage thrills and chills.” It delivers. The chills are mild but sincere as the audience is treated to the “live” radio broadcast of two short thrillers. There is a Foley person making sound effects on-the-go and playing live music as needed to enhance the creepiness of the whole affair. This show had me grinning goofily for the entire time. It's totally charming. ... full review

Lights out in the hermits cave is a fresh take on the vintage days when we got our thrills and scares on the radio. It is the right mix of fun and creepiness to keep you both at the edge of your seats and entertained. I am especially thrilled that this is another woman led project defying conventions! ... full review
ANNE MESA certified reviewer June 21, 2018
This was a really fun show! The cast and foley crew do a great job re-creating the 1940's radio play atmosphere. Never a dull moment, full of action and intrigue. Glad I got a chance to catch this at Fringe this year. ... full review
SARAH SPROUSE certified reviewer June 21, 2018
I really enjoyed this show. The actors were on point and I really felt drawn into the storyline. I loved the sounds effects presented right in front, the oldtimey radio feel, and the comic relief throughout. The juxtaposition of the ominous creepy stories and the laugh-out-loud comedic skits left me on the edge of my seat. From start to finish this was a very well thought out and executed show.... full review
