What would you do with a ghost for a roommate? Beautiful and original play that takes on a character’s journey to accept themself through a supernatural lens with comedy and heart. The writing was excellent! ... full review

I liked the show, and the ending, but the ending for me would have been even more successful if there had been better clarity re: what exactly brought it about.... full review

Ghosts Can't Pay Rent did not disappoint! The show is a beautiful combination of humor and tragedy culminating in the heartbreaking and inspiring depiction of the queer human experience spanning decades. The diverse cast of talented actors gave a performance that was believable, touching, and thought provoking. The important topics addressed in this show was presented in a way that was relatable and hopeful, while also being entertaining and funny. I truly enjoyed the show. Five stars!... full review

This play tells a lovely story of unfulfilled desires and how we as humans (dead or alive) hold on tightly to the things most precious to us. Although I didn’t understand the ending too well, I didn’t question it in the moment at all. I believe that’s due to the very honest and impactful acting of Fernanda aka Cas. From the very first scene, this very lively cast told a very funny yet heartwarming story. Their inner lives and relationships to each other were deep and relatable. Be sure to catch this production to enjoy some supernatural yet genuine performances!... full review
