SHOW #5: A hard-to-quantify, non-standard, twisty show you should see because it's fun as hell and gets your thinks happening. ... full review

To me, Sam Mobean is an alluring, abstract play conjuring themes like identity crisis, existentialism, and fate. Great use of the black box and several creative, unique theatrical conventions are established early on and used throughout with great success and excitement. I felt as though these scenes were best taken in by allowing myself to settle into the momentum and tone of the piece instead of trying to decode them on-the-fly. The most interesting piece that I've seen from Michael Shaw Fisher yet.... full review

A swirling, maddening, hilarious descent into a tale as twisted as its main character. I heard a lot of comparisons to David Lynch before the show, and I gotta say, it did not disappoint. Mindbending and entertaining from start to bloody finish. ... full review

This show was a freakin' wild ride. The entire cast is stupid talented. An interesting show to see as unfortunately the majority of what I've experienced at Fringe thus far has been pretty underwhelming. This show makes you think and makes you laugh and makes you impressed. It makes you. lol Like most Michael Shaw Fisher show you leave going "What did I just watch?", but like... you're happy about it.... full review

A weird and wonderful mash-up of modern noir, David Lynch, and quantum physics.... full review

What a weird and wonderful and wacky show that just kept spiraling towards more and more insanity. This was right up my theatrical alley.... full review
RYAN GOWLAND certified reviewer June 17, 2019
A cast, script, and director firing on all cylinders! I absolutely loved it! A surreal journey filled with humor and inspired staging executed with assassin-level precision by the cast. This is a show that defies expectations while simultaneously exceeding them. Would see it again without hesitation! A fucking delight!... full review
FRANCESCA MANZI certified reviewer June 17, 2019
I'll put money on this play being the most clever & interesting you'll see all Fringe. A wild ride full of lyrical beauty, excellent writing & acting and impeccable stagecraft & use of space. Original, hilarious, disturbing and thought-provoking.... full review
