This was a very sweet story with a happy ending for the main characters. The integration of technology to the story was well done, the actors all did a wonderful job. It's a great show to put in between some of the terribly serious and/or "downer" shows that can be at Fringe. ... full review

Once again, the Flat Tire Theatre Company proves that its strengths lie in crafting well-performed and engaging productions. The Circle Table generates a nice snapshot of the transition from high school to early life that happens to all of us, in one way or another.... full review

This is a great interconnected web that reminds me a little of a story like "Love Actually" in the way that so many stories intersect and entwine with one another, particularly as the show ends. Thorough, well-acted, and cleverly staged and choreographed, "The Circle Table" really highlights the ways we communicate and the impact on our relationships in the age of smartphones, Facebook, and Lyft... and even while evaluating that, makes you care so much more about the characters and their stories.... full review

Real. So real. Most if not all of the scenes spoke to me in regards to my own life. The indecision of moving from a small town to a big city for school. Being happy where you end up, but still missing the family and friends left behind. It was an inventive way to tell a old leaving home story.... full review

Surprisingly endearing "slice-of-life" style offering with lots of great humor and heartwarming moments. ... full review
VERONICA TJIOE certified reviewer June 10, 2019
A witty and endearing script by Eric Moore explores how technology connects and separates us and reads like a better-written cousin to "Almost, Maine". Clever, but not overwrought, weaving of storylines piece together how these young adults are connected and form a relatable array of figuring out how to be an adult in your twenties while navigating a changing relationship with your parents, your exes, your highschool friends, your current relationships, your chosen cities, career paths, and yourself. ... full review

JIM BLANCHETTE certified reviewer June 10, 2019
A smart ensemble of talented young actors bring their focus to love in the social media age. Presented in a series of scenes, the show cycles through the trials of young people finding their way in the world. The cast was top notch, with delightful subtle and nuanced performances, none better than the outstanding Ali Pinkerton. But their were no weak links. The strength of the this piece is the well-directed acting company.... full review
