SAMANTHA RONCEROS certified reviewer June 21, 2022
A NoHo Arts theatre review of “The Tanner,” written and performed by Alex McSherry, and produced by Fringe Management and Samantha de Gyarfas at this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival. Alex McSherry is no stranger to Fringe.

I thought the show was terrific. I especially liked that it was based on historical facts and very well done. The actor did a fantastic job telling his story as a tanner and soldier. He made me feel how he must have felt going into battle with Wallace. Go see this show and don't miss the end.... full review
