EDWARD GOODMAN certified reviewer June 28, 2019
The reviews aren't wrong. This show is a lot of fun. And the premise is great.... full review
KELLEY PIERRE certified reviewer June 28, 2019
Oh this was fun. Lucas Alifano had me by the heartstrings the moment he stepped onstage as our almighty creator. A rockstar cast. Delightful premise. A knock-out comedy from start to finish. ... full review
JOHN PATRICK DALY certified reviewer June 29, 2019
A cute, awkward, and provoking look at the political and social climate of today as seen by the very people who created it. How much of our world was planned, and how much of it was our doing? And if we've done this to ourselves, are we really worth saving?... full review

Jeff Scott Carey knows how to write comedic roles straight down the middle of the strike zones of his accomplished cast. And they deliver with home runs from the top to the bottom of the lineup. Lucas Alifano (looking great in earth tones) does wonderful work as a nice-guy supreme being condemned to live among his creations in an Alabama trailer park. Emily Clark whips up a southern girl, tired of working a drive-thru and her troglodyte ex, who's frustration has inspired her to get active for political change. A play with laugh-out-loud twists and turns just when they are needed, COME ON DOWN is one of the most highly enjoyable productions of this year's Fringe.

The story was very creative and kept you guessing about what would happen next. It had an impressive acting team that brought the characters to life and take you with them on the adventure. Highly recommended!... full review
GAYLE BLUEMEL certified reviewer June 11, 2019
Such a good idea to explore, especially in this world we live in now. The writing was powerful, yet didn't hit the audience over the head with obvious references, giving us the ability to dig deep into ourselves for meanings and relevance. Excellent actors bring this allegory to life. An hour certainly well spent.... full review

They say you're not supposed to talk about religion or politics in public, but Come On Down cleverly does both so well and with such charm that you can't help but fall in love with everyone on stage--even the "bad guys!"... full review
