MANDY RUBELI certified reviewer June 11, 2023
Drew is an absolutely fantastic actor, and somehow also an incredibly gifted writer. This show felt like a poem. It was wonderfully absurdist, I almost felt like I was in a surrealist painting or a crazy board game. Do yourself a favor and go see this beautiful piece of art!!! ... full review

Drew is an exceptionally captivating writer and performer. I was riveted the moment the lights went up. The show was so intelligently and creatively designed that I immediately felt like I was inside another world, enhanced by the sound effects and lighting. Drew has a brilliant creative mind and it was a pleasure to immerse myself in his creation. ... full review

A personal epic that gives us a view of grief, artistry and wonder through a universally relatable framework. The performer’s love for literature comes to the forefront, and the moments of self referential nature of the piece made the structure approachable.... full review

DAN PREVETTE certified reviewer June 23, 2023
A beautiful, existential drama. A work of poetry as much as a piece of theatre. Drew is an artist's artist and an actor's actor.

This play is lofty yet intricate, expansive yet intimate, and while it leaves much to be interpreted, Drew's passion, craft, and heart are inarguably left on the stage.... full review

Impressive performance that was conceptually fascinating and completely unique to anything I’ve seen in a one person show. One man’s journey through loss and heartbreak told through a fantasy experience. Clever, original, and gripping.... full review

I was really touched by this whole show. Drew has a skill for depicting human experiences in a unique way without being too "on the nose". His performance of a man searching for his missing wife hit home as more than just a story of yearning, but a story of learning to let go. ... full review

An artistic deep dive into an emotional experience we can all relate to--lost love. Drew's metaphor of navigating a literal heart to process a break-up was both clever and poignant. ... full review
