ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 09, 2023
Ooo, this is a good one folks! I thought it might be a bit ghoulish in subject matter, maybe I wasn't in the mood for that. But no, it was clever, charming, insightful and thought provoking. All that but also funny banter and some good ol' belly laughs thrown in there too. The performances were first rate quality (it's a two women play), the dialogue sharp and witty. Definitely put this one on your fringe list to be sure to catch. You won't be disappointed!... full review

One of the best plays I've ever experienced! Donnie Jarman is a wonderful writer and the actors executed his words so brilliantly. As Gen Z would say, "They killed it". I felt every moment, laughter and tears are always a surprising combination. If you don't go see this play you're missing out. ... full review

This was a FABULOUS play! Beautiful script, great direction, flawless performance by Jennifer Ashe, and a brilliant, authentic, stunning, inspiring and memorable performance by Lindsay Seim. It's the best play I have seen at Finge this year. I am SO glad I saw it. GO SEE THIS PLAY!... full review

Absolutely Fabulous. I was captured from start to finish. It's such a pleasure to see a play that is well written and not self-indulgent, with actors who were not just good actors, but well cast. The set was well thought out. The dark humor was just right and the difficult subject matter was handled with perfection. I see a lot of theater and this was one of the best of the year.... full review

Donnie Jarman has a special gift of storytelling. He asks his audience to explore love, death, letting go, and reflection on who we truly are through his two characters. And he does it with humor as well as heart break. The cast and the director have taken his words and given them a powerful life. A compelling, inspiring and thought-provoking experience This play is a beautiful example of the value of seeing live theater!... full review

"Eulogy" is a very sharp, sincere and highly entertaining play about trauma, survival and love. The outstanding dialogue really rises in this very well-written two-hander set in New York City, featuring two outstanding female actors. I was wrapped by this piece from the start, all the way to the final fade to black. The dark subject matter did not stop me or the audience from laughing out loud at this plays honesty. Fantastic show.... full review

Go see this play. That is my simplest, most heart-felt reaction and review. I mean it. Donnie Jarman's play hit me in the gut and the heart. It is a profound piece, not in terms of ideas or action, but for the emotional depths it reaches and explores, with compassion and humor.... full review

DAVID ROBINSON certified reviewer June 17, 2023
This show was good. I am known amongst my friends as someone with impossibly high theatrical standards and am so often disappointed. Not this time. This show was good. VERY good. Go see the last performance if you can.... full review
