What Am I, Chopped Suey?

michael lyons · July 02, 2022 certified reviewer
Meg delivers a funny, deeply personal, and brutally honest introspection into her upbringing shaped by her Chinese-American identity, difficult home life, and reckoning of personal and societal biases as an adult. And despite is being deeply personal, she brings out the universal feelings of self-doubt, judgement, otherness, regret, and forgiveness that we could all relate to. ... full review

Not That Illegal

Yusuf has written a charming, funny comedy that is brought to light be fun, engaging ensemble. From the experiences of some of best friends, I know that the immigration process can be horribly frustrating, dehumanizing, and sometimes heartbreaking. Bravo to Yusuf for creating this play to speak to those experiences and make us laugh along the way. ... full review

Grief: A One Man ShitShow

michael lyons · July 02, 2022 certified reviewer
Profound, moving show that does exactly as the poster suggests, flips grief on its head. I walked away with a shaken, expanded perception of the subject, and I do not doubt that it will come to mind when it is inevitably my turn to grieve something or someone. ... full review

Not That Illegal

joshua pyne · July 02, 2022 certified reviewer
Not That Illegal is not only topical and socially inoculating - in this increasingly theocratic, xenophobic fascist country - but it is side-splitting and has lots of heart. Yusuf Yildiz’s somewhat autobiographic script has gotten quite tight and it shows! This cast is extremely talented with comic timing for days. It is incredibly difficult these days to come upon a piece of theatre that not only sets out to accomplish it dramaturgical intent, but is also incredibly engaging and entertaining. I ... full review

STUNNING. I was blown away by the caliber of this show and the explosive talent of the performer. Not only are all the original songs clever and beautifully sung, but it's also funny, fast-paced, and touching. This show/Charlotte needs to be on Broadway ASAP!... full review

Grief: A One Man ShitShow

kristine mcpherson · July 02, 2022 certified reviewer
Grief is an inconsolable emotion. I realized this watching Colin's show last night. It creates an uncrossable chasm between the sufferer and the rest of the world. I've been the world and the sufferer in this life and I felt like Colin's beautiful story telling creates a bridge between the two experiences by creating a space for grief's expression and allowing us to witness it. I am deeply grateful.... full review

Theatre is not dead! From the storyline to the actors who did the roles justice. Everything was well thought out even down to the music numbers. This play was one ecstatic rollercoaster ride I did not want to get off and I’m glad to have been part of an experience that really showed value to what the future could be not only for society but for roles and storytelling in the industry. The show was nothing short of brilliant! Standing ovation to the many hats Tazia wore, I believe it was no easy fe... full review

This performance is an honest look into one couple's grief and pain and how they are coping. A very tragic personal experience which touches everyone in the audience and opens a door to help deal with grieving, which is something we have all experienced. I heard laughter and crying in the audience and I too laughed and cried. ... full review

Every human being should see this show!!! Colin tells the true story of the tragic loss of his two children and the journey that follows. He tells his story with humor, brutal honesty and such care.

Not That Illegal

anonymous · July 01, 2022 certified reviewer
The premise is interesting enough: a same-sex marriage to result in a green card; however, when comparing it to works with similar premises such as The Odd Couple or the ridiculously homophobic I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, the show already feels behind-the-times. If the end of the show had resulted in, say, a character's coming out, that would definitely improve matters, but the show is a story about immigration that ends with a very awkward position regarding homophobia and same-sex marr... full review
