I really enjoyed it! Inventive movement and colorful characters in a very compact play. I always enjoy watching David Haverty perform - he's consistently dynamic and charismatic in his work. Nikki Muller and Jason Rosario continue their streak as fantastic directors, producers, and performers. Ian Kaye, new to me, wrote an engaging piece and was wonderful to watch as counterpart to Haverty. I recommend it!... full review

A tight, action-packed, cerebral, emotional half hour. Featuring a cast of fantastic performers and a sharp, well-written script, your eyes, brain, and heart are in for a rollercoaster ride of emotions. "Keep your eye on what's important and be wary of bombast." More importantly, go see the hell out of this show. ... full review

DAVID REYNOLDS certified reviewer June 23, 2019
I would say this is a quintessential fringe show. New participants and old die hards coming together to create something that only they could do. This could only be made by the people on that stage. I’d say rush and snag your tickets while you can because this a must see. Bravo! ... full review

45 Milligrams blends adept physical comedy with deeper, mental issues while being wrapped in an absurdist blanket. I was completely engaged the whole time, having no clue where they were going to take it. It's hard to believe 30 minutes could fly by so fast. ... full review

Interesting, cool show! The physicality in this show was awesome, and the characters were crazy-fun to watch. ... full review

Quite literally felt like a physical representation of an anxiety attack unfolding in front of you. The intensity, the breathing, the pace. It was quite a genius production. Quick, jam-packed and an experience to remember. Plays of this nature can easily become very one note- but 45 milligrams was real, had excellent comedic moments and visceral. I wouldn't miss this conversation starter. ... full review
JESSIE KNOWLES certified reviewer June 15, 2019
There was not a moment that I was not totally riveted by what was happening onstage. I wanted to be able to watch all four actor’s faces at the same time because there was so much depth in the performances. I was mesmerized by the physical aspect as well and how it was stretched and experimented with throughout the show. ... full review
BENJAMIN SCHWARTZ certified reviewer June 10, 2019
Borrowing from classic Hollywood comedies like the Three Stooges and Laurel and Hardy, 45 Milligrams takes these physical comedy elements and sensibilities, drops in a heap of dark absurdity, and blends it into a weird little 35 minutes that fits right into its own category. A great piece for fringe!... full review
