MORNING COFFEE is a funny play filled with heartache and melancholy. It follows a complicated and bitter sweet relationship between two exes as they finalize their breakup and who will be moving out of their shared apartment. ... full review

"They say that breaking up is hard to do..." Can I get an AMEN?!?! Truer lyrics to a song could not be more appropriate than they are here when I think of this serio-comedic, gut-punching, two-hander brilliantly acted by Emily Yonker and David Auspitz! At times, the darkness of this relationship was brutally uncomfortable and left me squirming in my seat, and at other times, I couldn't help but HONK OUT LOUD at the dark humor swirling around the dismantling of this five-year relationship gone so sour. I'll never look at coffee, cottage cheese, or Captain Crunch the same way again... ... full review

From the start, the actors felt so in their element that it took a minute to realize they were in fact acting. Emily and David both have such an easy, conversational flow to them, making it impossible to look away. They created the atmosphere, engaging many senses including smell - with real coffee brewing as we entered the theatre. Their chemistry radiated through the theatre and kept us spellbound. The range portrayed through pain, anger, sadness, nostalgia, play, and even humor kept us wondering what the outcome of their situation would be. 10/10 would recommend ... full review

I loved how natural the actors performances were. It really felt like I was a fly on the wall of someone’s break up story. It was also great to see the depth of this play ~ you had a lot of super funny parts with the audience roaring as well as more tender moments. Overall this production was both entertaining and inspiring, from an actor’s perspective.... full review

An engaging cat and mouse game between a couple come to life in a an intimate theater setting, Morning Coffee was a delight to watch. The chemistry between the couple was palpable. You immediately felt like they had been in a relationship for years and that this was moment when things could change. There were some hilarious lines, some heartfelt moments, and overall a well-paced back and forth between the two actors. Highly recommend. ... full review

I walked into the theatre expecting to see a play. Instead, it feels like I accidentally walked in to someone's apartment and witnessed a real breakup. That's how good the performances, set design, and general ambiance was. Bravo.... full review

A great duo show that is tightly written with twists and turns. It’s full of “will they, won’t they” moments that keep you guessing how it’s all going to end.... full review

I thought this was a really thought provoking and impressive piece, especially considering this was the producer, director and actors debut on an LA stage. Attention to detail is so important in capturing (and keeping!) the audience’s full and undivided attention for a full hour plus in a two person show. And this really did not disappoint. ... full review

I loved this show. The setting was intimate, resonant with the overall essence of the performance: an intimate, raw, insightfully dialogued relationship between the two characters. This pulled on some heart strings. ... full review
