Thank you Eli! What a generous gift of authenticity and joy to the audience. I felt your every experience, every detail, all the nuances. Time was not felt, only the deep connection to you as you shared your 3 dimensional story though song, sight and the sparkle of each vignette.... full review

Out Of The Blue is the Feel-Good show of the Hollywood Fringe! This beautifully told story of faith and trust in our own intuition and the wondrous powers that guide us, is completely entertaining! It’s like a bite-sized Broadway show in a solo package! Eli Hans has crafted a glorious show with uplifting songs and a message that lifts our spirits high. He’s a generous, open hearted story teller, likable from the moment he takes the stage, with an incredible singing voice! This show will make you laugh, cry, and ultimately cheer on your feet, asking for an Encore…as our mighty audience did!! ... full review

I watched this show a while back but I’ve been thinking about it since and it’s one that has stayed with me because it was such a deep and meaningful piece. Yes it was fun and funny also and so very interesting. Eli is an amazing performer. But, it was also a story of heartbreak, roadblocks, life’s struggles and the will to survive, a love for life and life worth living wholly and YES listening to that gut feeling that tells you how to navigate this crazy world. ... full review

Wow, just wow! This show had everything that the audience wanted!! The powerful story, triple threat performers and a true life love story! What an inspiring, moving and beautifully enlightening story. Incredible execution, commitment and connection with the audience. I particularly enjoyed the contrasting journey Eli and Joseph took us on; ranging between the elated dance moments and the deep moments of vulnerability, pain and loss. ... full review

My Wife and I met Eli and Joseph in San Miguel de Allende this April 2022. We connected with them so much in Mexico, we wanted to see “Out of the Blue” in Los Angeles, CA. So we drove in from Arizona and we brought our very best friends with us. My overall impression of the show was …”Wow!... Actually I said “F@#$, I am blown away by everything Eli has endured and gone through!” ... full review

OUT OF THE BLUE is a truly wonderful and very heartfelt show. This is a personal show that manages to remain very personal while touching every person in the audience. Beautifully and sincerely performed, it’s an emotional journey that manages to not only touch our hearts DEEPLY but keeps us beautifully entertained at the same time. Eli Hans has been through a lot and I mean A LOT. It is quite a journey he takes us on as he goes back over what he’s been through in his life and he accomplishes that rare quality of looking back with brutal honesty, warm humor, touching grace and a keen eye that makes us stand and applaud his life as well as his performance. This show and this man have HEART!!! He has a lovely voice and the songs are deep and ... full review
