Love Chicken is a must-see! As a queer nonbinary person of color, I hardly ever see myself and my lived experiences presented in the media. This play is relatable, hilarious, and captures all of the joy, sloppiness, and tenderness that is being queer. It also brings to light different relationship styles, sexuality and gender identity, and both the struggle and triumph of finding one's voice in a way that plucks at your heart strings and makes you laugh until your stomach hurts. Kudos to the amazing director, cast, and everyone who helped make it happen! What a special way to kick off Pride month!... full review

Everyone needs to see this piece. This is what theatre could and should be in 2022. A relationship drama that makes LaBute and Mamet look like amateurs; this phenomenally simple story is the voice of a generation presented without a megaphone. Ultimately it's about humans dealing with friendship and love through the scope of identity. Writer Maddox Pennington has elegantly and seamlessly molded a story that absolutely anyone could relate to. Although gender and sexuality are huge pieces of the puzzle, Maddox uses their adept hand to not necessarily make it ABOUT that. It's a play about relationships and those relationships just happen to be between trans/non-binary people. This should be the new trajectory for theatre. A character's gender... full review

TAMARA HARRISON certified reviewer June 18, 2022
It was great - lot of jokes and a great cast. And it was full of interesting relationships between the characters. Nice to see something with characters you can empathize with. The jokes didn't feel shoehorned in, they came from the characters/ truth. They didn't seem tacked on to the story.... full review

Love Chicken is one of the queerest things I've seen at Fringe yet, and that's high praise. Hear more about the show contrasted against other Fringe productions on the "Stages of Our City" podcast: http://stageraw.com/2022/06/08/podcast-stages-of-our-city-16-part-1/... full review

Wonderfully written, expertly- performed, hilarious and thought-provoking reality show! Holy cow, this was a quick 90 minute show that keeps you thoroughly engaged and wanting for the next move and the next meaningful conversation! I enjoyed the “realness” and relatability portrayed through all characters. Well done - writer, director and cast members. I feel this story can be a series with a spin-off with each character’s life and story. Loved it!!... full review
