Tales from the powder room was great! It showed the very real struggles that women go through every single day and had such an important message that women need to encourage and build each other up instead always tearing each other down. There were very honest and vulnerable moments on stage that as a guy gave me a glimpse into a woman’s perspective and made me think about how I can be better man. The women in this play did such an amazing job. Go see it!... full review

Refreshing to see a play written & directed by a woman, starring eight women. Funny moments, sad moments and cringe-worthy moments. ... full review

I loved this show! The premise is genius. I think everyone has had that experience at work of going to the oasis in the bathroom away from everyone, and the noise and the prying eyes. Whether to cry, talk yourself up, or talk in private, it's a sacred space. This play has all of that. The actresses brought so much depth and vulnerability to those private moments that I almost felt I shouldn't be watching. However I couldn't take my eyes off of them. The show really peels back the layers of the human experience and reminds you that you never really know what's going on in someone's life. ... full review

An intimate look at what it means to be female-presenting in the workplace. A poignant look at a wide variety of experiences and realities of working while female.... full review

WHAT A DELIGHTFUL SHOW! SO MANY TALENTED WOMEN ACTING IN THIS PLAY, WITH SO MANY IMPORTANT MESSAGES ROLLED INTO ONE, IT'S HARD TO CHOOSE A FAVORITE. EVERY VIGNETTE WAS ENTERTAINING, WHILE GIVING A GLIMPSE INTO THE DAILY STRUGGLES OF WOMEN, THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS OF THE POWDER ROOM. I WAS PARTICULARLY BLOWN AWAY BY MEGAN OLIVIA'S PERFORMANCE -INJECTING COMEDY INTO WHAT COULD BE OTHERWISE SEEN AS A TRAGEDY. FANTASTIC COMEDIC ACTING!! SHE HAD THE ENTIRE AUDIENCE UPROARIOUSLY LAUGHING! GO SEE THE PLAY AND SUPPORT WOMEN ACTORS, DIRECTORS, WRITERS AND THEIR STORIES. ... full review

A familiar format is given a fresh new twist with a mix of monologues, two handers and ensembles pieces all sewn together to make a beautiful and touching piece. Well acted, performed and executed it's a show with something for everyone.... full review

Tales From The Powder Room was such a moving piece, especially as a female viewer. I'm sure every woman can relate to one, if not more than one, character's experience in or out of the workplace. Every woman clearly has their own personal obstacles in life and feels the pressure to constantly "have it together," without wanting to show any sort of weakness under pressure, be it work pressure, rivalry, jealousy, or not being accepted. Sometimes the drama at work isn't actually about the work.... full review
STEPHEN FIFE stage raw certified reviewer June 19, 2019
Heartfelt and powerful. I thought you did a good job of capturing all the pressures on women in a high-powered office environment. You also got a nice mix of personalities, and all the actresses did a wonderful job of bringing those friendships, conflicts and power-plays to life.... full review

Such a different play! I never really thought of all the scenarios that go on in a powder room. Its take on the female world really opened up my perspective in today’s society.... full review

Wow, what a great show, wonderful message about being there for other women, it was powerful. Stories from what goes on when women go to the bathroom in the workplace. I was teary eyed for the touching performance by Kelli Fish who plays Cheryl and laughing hysterically for the virtuoso performance by Megan Olivia who plays Krystal. Robyn Migel is highly talented and watching her show was such a treat. All the women came together and gave such an amazing performance, great job also to Sandi Milne, Kamri Lin, Burgandi Phoenix, Lara Helena, Davida Sal, and Sarah Siadat. Go watch this show!... full review
