BOB LEGGETT indie voice blog certified reviewer June 21, 2019
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
MATT RITCHEY gia on the move certified reviewer June 21, 2019
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 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

SAROYA WHATLEY certified reviewer June 16, 2019
Pho Girl is both a comedic and poignant tale that follows a young woman on her journey of self-discovery through her love of cooking. Chambers' script combines witty one-liners with emotional moments to remind us that we are the ones who define ourselves, not others. Trinh brings a warm, comforting energy to the role. All in all, Pho Girl is a gem that should not be missed.... full review

A beautiful play about identity and culture. Pho Girl goes deep beyond the surface of what we think we know about Asian culture. It digs into the roots of cultural division and the struggles of being biracial. An honest, funny play that through fantastic storytelling poses the right questions that makes you think about how we have viewed identity and worth for so many generations.... full review
