This show is such an interesting take on what happens when you die-heaven/hell/the in-between? It also raises the questions on what it’s like to live in a religious setting and how hypocritical that way of living can be.... full review

It was soooo good. Very compelling. I have never seen a play like Fight Song, and I didn’t know what to expect but I’m blown away. It’s experimental in all the right ways while still delivering such a great story. ... full review

Incredible. Out of the countless shows I have seen at the Fringe over the years, I have never experienced something that affected me or captured my attention quite like this.

JASON POLLAK certified reviewer June 22, 2019
If you've ever enjoyed an experimental production, do not miss Fight Song. The acting, writing, direction and design are superb, and the ensemble works together on and offstage to craft a brilliant production, full of laughs, darkness, and more meaning than I thought a 50-minute production could muster. ... full review
