I really like this company and you should too. Their work is consistently energetic and full of artistry. I'm a crier, but this is the first show at the fringe to make me weep, weep like a little boy. The acting is top notch, really this pair is dynamic, interesting and varied throughout. Lonesome No More! is a terrific young company and if having a linear plot isn't something you require to enjoy a play, definitely see their show....
This is one the the best pieces of theatre I've seen in a long time. It's raw, playful and fun-- while also being incredibly touching, authentic, poignant and beautiful. It attempts to scratch the surface of one of the most precious aspects of being human; love. I say "attempt" because this show wonderfully points at the fact that love can often be innumerable, inconceivable, and downright ridiculous. It's short, it's sweet, and it's not to be missed. Do yourself a favor and see this show. ...
This is a fast and furious piece of delicious strudel that makes you laugh after each bite. All sketches have the theme of love, yet many are from famed or ill-fated lovers of literature or real life. The staging and direction is brilliant. They use the whole theater as their stage. We, the audience, are like participates in a park watching two great actors spin tales of love all around us. GO and get caught in the web....

This was a finely acted and wonderfully produced show. It was very creative with its scenes.
2 actors, who knows how many plays. Quite a feat to take on.
However, there were multiple times where there were extended periods of nothing onstage. Having 2 extra actors wouldn't have hurt that. If the audience is given the time to divert their attention, they will do so.
It was also confusing, but because the scenes were not always developed. Not enough plot in all of them.
Overall, not a bad show. ...

Think of this as an experiment and you will get much more out of it than if you think of it as "a show." Two actors, bare bones ideas (sometimes confusing, sometimes more fleshed out, sometimes completely random), and quick costume changes make for an interesting experience!...

I had mixed feelings about the show, but at the conclusion of the show, I felt like my hour was well spent.
The skits were hit or miss. Some of them, including the Salon scene and the chase scene using both doors and the backstage area were magnificent, but the Scrambler scene was just okay, for example.
I think the overall theme of the show and the connections between pieces was excellent. I did laugh often, but more appreciated the cleverness of the direction and presentation of the pieces. Each member of the cast was multi-talented and likeable, including the voice-over audio actor.
There was a lot of work put into creating a true sketch comedy show without leaving many seconds of time absent of entertainment. Even the chan...
