Pastiche Queen's one-person show is an inventive peek through the keyhole of the life of a creator of a sprawling game/lifestyle. PQ conjures a tiny, specific universe to tell an intimate story that I imagine most of us haven't heard.... full review
DANIEL SUGIMOTO certified reviewer July 10, 2022
The writer and performer has such a grasp and control for the text and story that you can’t help but get sucked in. It’s a theatrical experience that you actually won’t get with other shows. Definitely worth a viewing and there are some emotional beats that remind you what theatre can do that other mediums can’t. ... full review

So much heart and good feels in this show. I laughed and I cried and then I thought about it all the way home while crying. Excellent for all DnD nerds like myself or just anyone that loves to hear a great story.... full review

The creation of Dungeons and Dragons and references to Syd Barett of Pink Floyd. As a fan of both I am already intrigued. This show exceeded my expectations. Dan is a powerhouse of a performer, effortless morphing into different characters. Very inventive, creative and fast moving show. ... full review

I loved it. Dark, funny, and personal, the show will reel you in and carry you in it’s wake. The characters portrayed are distinct, enjoyable, and believable. The story is charismatically told through several interconnected parts where laughter is followed by tears. ... full review
