AMY SCHUMACHER certified reviewer June 09, 2019
This show is held up by thought provoking dialogue and great performances. The writing is really great! I actually wasn't ready for it to be over. It left me wanting more, that's for sure. ... full review

I loved that this show addressed some important and pressing issues with humor and sensitivity. It was LOL funny but made me think back to some bonehead moves of my own. I am a longtime fan of Chris Valenti, and he never disappoints. SMTTW was my first FRINGE experience, and I am looking forward to next year... full review

A fun and at times hilarious and thought provoking sketch show that sheds light on what it means to be engaged and what it means to be "woke af". Playfully toeing the line of offensive in moments, it makes the audience exactly as uncomfortable as their conscience allows. ... full review

A fun, funny show! Not altogether perfect - some of the plays are a bit uneven, and not sure if certain actors were under-rehearsed or simply underwritten - but worth the ticket price for the plays that were really hysterical! 'Polite Racism' might be worth the price of the ticket alone... but if you're in a really silly mood, throw in the last piece as well, as I laughed my ass off.... full review
