“Shubop” is the musical prequel to Gordon’s musical play of last year, “No Matter Watt.” The cast is quite good, with some great singing and dancing. Gordon’s introductory monologue is quite moving, and really is the “book” explaining the plot of the musical numbers. I would love to see both halves of this play put together, which Gordon is planning to do. Recommended !... full review

It is clear Gordon Matheson is a man with a lot of heart. This show is heartwarming and I believe his work geniunely makes the world a better place. A life-affirming story about not letting your pain define you, and overcoming self destruction with self love and compassion. The world needs more artists like Gordon.... full review

An earnest and genuine show with a lot of energy and talent on display. A touching and personal story made for everyone to enjoy and take in. The cast of talented singers and dancers truly shine and I am still impressed with how with such little space they were able to pull off such complex and vibrant choreography. A play that deals with the hardships of life and addiction yet still is so charming and hopeful!... full review

I am no stranger to The Rooms., but good therapy does not necessarily make for good theatre. Such is the case here. The writing is so far beneath the talent of most of the actors tasked with presenting it. Perhaps the lead, John Cassidy, could explain what is so interesting about the stage right wall, since he delivers most of his monologs to it instead of the very patient, attentive audience. Alex D. Hayward is a fantastic mover and has a beautiful voice I wish I understood what he was signing about...or why. The only "piece" that makes sense is the song called, "Normies," delivered expertly by Aurelia Myers. It's the one bright spot in the show, the one thing that makes sense in this rambling, repetitive, nonsensical content.... full review
