An intimate look inside a nasty breakup. I felt I was a fly on the wall, watching the characters unfold on stage.... full review
JOE ROZMAN certified reviewer June 24, 2019
An emotional and intense rollercoaster, filled with joy and pain. The two main actors delivered on the uniquely authentic script. So good, I want to see it again before it ends! ... full review
WILLIAM KELLOGG certified reviewer June 24, 2019
Mr. Langer and Ms. Fountain deliver powerful performances that somehow capture the general experience of every heartbreak by focusing on very specific details of one particular story. The tech methods applied during scene changes/breaks really gave the performance a polish which one could understandably not have been expecting, given the austere cozy venue. Compelling writing keeps a great pace for this 65 minute performance, which will leave you with a dry mouth and damp eyes.... full review

Thank You For Loving Me makes the audience a fly on the wall, watching a romantic relationship ebb and flow in heartbreaking ways.... full review
ERIN THAYER certified reviewer June 22, 2019
This was an intimate portrayal of a relationship’s end. Langer and Fountain’s performances were entirely realistic and absorbing. Through present day scenes, and flashback moments, the audience saw how both sides recalled the same shared experiences, that ultimately lead to the destruction of the relationship. ... full review

Thank you for loving me is an emotional rollercoaster of an all too true look at the ups and downs of the end of a relationship. Scott Langer and Ashley Fountain captivate the audience with their raw, emotional, heart on their sleeve performance reminding all of us of the love and hurt we go through when a chapter closes in our lives. Go see this show so you can remember why it’s important to love the people in our lives and to be present and grateful for what we have. ... full review
JOHN PATRICK DALY certified reviewer June 21, 2019
A touching, cathartic look at how loving another person can consume you completely. Well written, well acted, and very personal, you will go on a journey with these characters through the first spirited moments to the inevitable heartbreak and trauma. If you've ever been in love this is a show to see. ... full review

JEREMY SAPP certified reviewer June 15, 2019
Funny and Heartbreaking. The powerful piece triggered memories of past relationships with all of their ups and downs and forced me to reexamine my perspective on how I relate and listen to people I've cared about. Loving relationships are at times challenging and rewarding regardless of the outcomes. This play was a welcome reminder of lost love's previous incarnations. ... full review

The greatest challenge for any show is how to be incredibly relatable to an audience of completely randomly selected people. The answer is always to tell as real a story as you can and hope that you land on some universal truth along the way. This piece hits that universal truth button no less than a dozen times because the story it tells is so raw and vulnerable, you cannot help but see yourself and your own experiences in each interaction between this couple. ... full review
