SWIPED

eric billitzer · June 25, 2019 uncertified reviewer
Among the best of the Fringe ! This is a comedic look at phone-app dating seen through the eyes of Alena's fictional persona Polly. Alena is a total talent -- professional opera-level voice, killer lyrics (she co-wrote with the director), Broadway-level performance ! This one-woman show has a live keyboardist, and Alena's singing voice fills the Hudson. The lyrics are Disney-level sharp; Alena also plays all the other characters and two more live instruments, flute and ukulele. There were ... full review

Pit of Goblins

This is a delightfully dark comedic piece from the equally dark and disturbed mind of Mitchell Bisschop. It follows. the story of a serial killer in a small town and revolving around a Pit of Goblins. ... full review

SexualMisadventuresOfAStraightWhiteMale: APrivilegeStory

alex hathaway · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
A wonderful journey into the mind of 'just a guy named Ross' As a one man show, this works beautifully, it's well paced, well thought out and the transition of Ross through his life to become the man that stands before you is an interesting journey to behold. The moments of truth are evident as you feel what he went through and experienced, as if you were a fly on the wall. A story told with heart, humility and understanding. Not exactly what I was expecting and challenged the way I thought abou... full review

Meet Me In Mizzery

jim hanna · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
I was looking forward to a solid, funny solo show about someone who moved from MO and had tales to spin about the people she knew there. This is instead something entirely different, entirely hilarious and far more entertaining. It's a hugely talented comic performer presenting what amounts to a series of comedy sketches with one character in each. There is no over arching tale to tell and yet, she manages to create something of a story just from well written, well acted characters performed with... full review

POCKETS

ian kaye · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
The songs and script were tight and it allowed the actors the space to really dig into their characters with an almost SNL inspired aire. This kept you engaged and at the fingertips of the performers and the scenes carried momentum in what was a laugh out loud funny, definite must-see.... full review

Effing hilarious and totally irreverent! What a great send-up of Tinder and online dating. I haven't laughed this hard since I saw "The Book of Mormon." Not for the prudish. ... full review

Earth To Karen

ian kaye · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
Easy to enjoy. A coming of age story about one of the most famous for all the wrong reasons astronauts of all time. The dialog was tight, the actors performances all hit in the right spots and the songs maintained the same clever quip the script possessed. ... full review

Red Bar

Very dark and very thought-provoking. I was captivated and eager to see what was next with this support group for serial killers. This is definitely a play for deep soul-searching, not for mere entertainment. ... full review
