CHRISTINE DEITNER certified reviewer June 08, 2019
A surprisingly moving one-woman show centered on family, genealogy and the way food both defines us as individuals and reminds us how we are all connected on this planet. ... full review

Once again, Chambers Stevens has written a brilliant play that is truly brought to life by the cast, in this case Orange County native Brigitte Ngo-Trinh. Make sure you come on an empty stomach to get the full effect of this amazing performance.... full review

Up front: Brigette was my Scholarship mentee for 2019. I had no creative connection to the show. Holy cow this show is great. Not only is the story of a girl discovering her heritage interesting, especially through the lens of cultural food dishes, but Brigette is a fantastic storyteller! She's honest, connected, and it's hard to believe that the show isn't a first-hand account with her simply walking us through the most important moment in her life. A tight script and fluid direction by Chambers Stevens along with Brigette's openness and easy relationship with the audience makes PHO GIRL an eye-opening, informative, and if you're lucky enough to sit in the right spot, tasty evening of theater. Highly recommended!... full review

A delightful, very funny exploration of identity and ethnicity via the universal language of food! Brigitte Ngo-Trinh gives a very engaging performance and offers good insight into what makes delicious pho and makes up a person. Highly recommended!... full review
