A truly entertaining piece that takes you back to the era of the video store, in this case Blockbuster. It was humorous, educational and very touching as the writer added a great personal storyline to parallel the fall of Blockbuster. I felt the range of emotions throughout the production, and there were genuine laughs from the whole audience. The writer/director/narrator did a fantastic job parsing out the story and also engaging the audience with each era of Blockbuster. You'll find yourself smiling for the whole hour but also find yourself touched. The ensemble cast really delivered great performances with engaging, unique characters. Can't recommend it enough. You'll leave the show with a big smile on your face.... full review

More a story told in a Blockbuster than a story about Blockbuster, but the play is better for it. A really engrossing tale about growing up with a cast of well-written, well-acted characters. This is a play I really wanted to see because of how much Blockbuster meant to me growing up and I feel like it delivered.... full review

BENJAMIN ROSEN certified reviewer June 14, 2019
What a heartfelt and humorous look at a cultural touchstone that will only exist in our memories. For someone who religiously visited and ultimately worked at (for several years) Blockbuster and for anyone who appreciates the ways in which movies shape ourselves, our identities and our values, our friendships and relationships, this was a truly satisfying piece of theatre.... full review
ALEXANDER ALCHEH certified reviewer June 14, 2019
If you have a love for the nostalgic and classic movies, while enjoying a light hearted but poignant story, with excellent performances and whip smart dialogue, this is the piece of theater for you. Highly recommend. You'll laugh, you'll remember and you'll question if all the technological gifts we have are worth it. Go go go.... full review

Star Trek, Marlowe, Zero G! A once in a lifetime opportunity to see Tamburlaine and Klingons together. "EPIC!" "Not to be missed!" "Genius"

Five Pieces of Paper

How do you tell a story about the Holocaust without it being overwhelming? You sing in Yiddish, act, tell stories, puppeteer, clown, and bake... “Beautifully courageous and authentic performance. I laughed, I cried, and I was deeply moved.”
