My overall impression

Colin Mitchell’s Mission to Mate is a dynamic, well-acted, well-timed and thought provoking production. The mood changes with each piece — from heavy, to light, to a combination of both.

This play is made up of three movements, with each actor portraying a different character in each piece. Michael Sanchez does a solid job as the three male leads. The male characters may be more understated than the female ones, but Sanchez’s talent is clearly evident.

Alla Poberesky is the female lead. She is an electric performer, expertly portraying three characters who are each a different mix of intensely vulnerable, sexy, awkward, and domineering. Poberesky is definitely an actor to watch for.

Each movement made me feel different things. I was uncomfortable at times (in a good way), amused at others, but always intrigued. Mission to Mate is a play you don’t want to miss.
