Crack Whore, Bulimic, Girl Next Door is a bold, gut wrenching and impossibly funny exploration of the tormented inner world of a depressed bulimic woman. The acting is raw, edgy and fearless. Sound grim? It's not. Marnie Olsons writing is so devastatingly self deprecating and honest that with a few dance numbers, a rollicking sound track, artful lighting by Joshua Silva, and fast paced witty staging by director Jenny Chun it all comes crashing together in this riveting entertaining one act roller coaster of a play. A warning: Do not feel badly for laughing inappropriately, the humor, like a healing beam of bouncing light is intentionally pointed at the darkest scariest parts of ourselves.... full review
VANESSA BOSS certified reviewer June 16, 2019
I was swept away by three women playing the psyche of a girl growing into womanhood and facing body image issues, bulimia and trying to control the unpredictable world around them. The dark insecurities many young women face are told in a way that is both heartfelt, vulnerable but also quirky and fun. There is so much light in this show amongst the darkness. Wonderful writing and acting! A fantastic show!... full review

'Crack Whore' begins lightheartedly enough, evoking vaudeville and burlesque. But soon clouds gather and it becomes a cri de coeur, crying justice in a voice first raised in 'The Trojan Women,' assaulting our comfort with a fierceness that would make Artaud or Brecht proud. This is theatre as the ancients of every race intended it -- strong soul medicine. I don't know a woman (or an LGBTQIA+ person) whom I would not warn about the show's many triggers. And I don't know a man I would let off the hook. See it. ... full review

SCATHACH COTTER the_detective (my blog) certified reviewer June 09, 2019
Riveting, raw, real & a riot Crack Whore, Bulimic, Girl Next Door opts for an anesthetic of darkest humour drawing you into a complex and beautiful story of healing and self-love. I have never seen a dark story end with such beautiful hope, handled with grace & dignity. If you're a woman (or know one) who has been through the dark, this is the beautiful medicine you need this Fringe Season.... full review

A truly honest, raw, beautiful, funny, and heartbreaking story of a woman's life as told by 3 incredibly talented and brave ladies, playing the same role, and one brilliantly funny and standout man playing all the men in her life. Bravo Crack- Whore, Bulimic, Girl- Next-Door! Thank you for a beautiful night of theatre. Do not miss this! It'll stay with you!... full review
BRIAN POPE certified reviewer June 09, 2019
Don't let the title put you off, CRACK WHORE, BULIMIC, GIRL-NEXT-DOOR is painfully funny, fueled by anger, but held together by compassion. The writing, directing and acting are so direct and honest, they feel revelatory. Don't miss it.... full review
