Girl From Schenectady

mesha pesha · July 15, 2019 certified reviewer
Oh my gosh GFS was AMAZING definitely a MUST see! I checked it out last night. Ayo blew me away with her performance! This was my first time seeing a one woman show. I was really impressed to see how she transitioned into each character she portrayed. She also caught me by surprise with her comedic ability. I was in tears from laughter! ... full review

Such powerful storytelling touching on so many of the complicated, personal and painful aspects of "growing up" to be a woman. Told with extraordinary honesty!... full review

A funny and surprisingly deep examination of the culture being fostered online by self-appointed gurus and ego-maniacs and the negative impact all that noise can have on very real people. ... full review

Dagmar Stansova’s, “Loose Underwear” is performance magic! She entertains, she touches, she transforms. I laughed, I cried, I left healed.... full review

My Trans Wife

spike dolomite ward · July 15, 2019 certified reviewer
Heart felt, honest, and endearing. Mimi and Mara make one of the most complex issues of our time very relatable by distilling it down for us so we can see their story through the lens of love, humor, and some really good harmonica.... full review

FERTILE.

matt ritchey · July 14, 2019 certified reviewer
FERTILE is a study in how to do character work in a solo show right. Not only is the structure of the show tight and moves flawlessly, but Heather Dowling creates scenes between two (or three) distinct people and takes her time shifting from one to the next as they communicate. Her timing is perfect and her characters are always honest and never rushed. The show is a terrific blend of comedy, tragedy, drama, and inspiration and Heather is a tremendous performer. Can't wait to see her next proj... full review

SWIPED

alex rasmussen · July 14, 2019 certified reviewer
The show was smart, funny and earnest. I thought it brought a fresh perspective on modern dating that didn't feel overly fatalistic. Overall I had a great time, and I'm not usually a huge musical person.... full review

FERTILE.

ray carsillo · July 14, 2019 certified reviewer
Poignant and powerful, Fertile humanizes and puts into perspective the kind of conversations lots of millennials and Gen-Zers are having with their families and friends now when it comes to starting families of their own: that it just isn't as easy as it once was. Myriad reasons affect people of all types and Heather's terrific performance of all the characters she's created tugs on your heartstrings one moment with its realness, and then makes you laugh the next when you realize how absurd some ... full review

Rory & the Devil

susannah snowden-ifft · July 13, 2019 certified reviewer
Fantastically well written and acted, compact and cozy in use of space, time and story. It drops you into an unfamiliar world yet within minutes you feel so comfortable with these characters and who they are that a short-hand or a simple gesture conveys just as much information as a long-winded exposition. The beer might've helped with that too.... full review

Mr. Yunioshi

jennifer chun · July 13, 2019 certified reviewer
This wonderfully multilayered comedy made me laugh, and then it made me want to cry because the subject matter hit me close to home as I am the mother of two CeltoKorean daughters who struggle with the subtle undertones (and not so subtle undertones) of racism in their daily lives and careers. The tongue in cheek humor was brilliantly rendered - a real Fringe delight. ... full review

Dear Jeff: A Musical Comedy About Suicide & Domestic Abuse

jennifer chun · July 13, 2019 certified reviewer
This show kicked my ass. In the best way possible. Callie Ott was 'singing my life with her words and killing me softly with her song.' Yeah - corny, but completely true. I sat in my car and cried after this show. ... full review

FERTILE.

jennifer chun · July 13, 2019 certified reviewer
Heather grabbed me immediately with her exceptional skill at characterization. Frankly, being born in a different social background and having the absolute opposite problem (how NOT to get pregnant) I thought I wouldn't be able to relate. However, her wry humor and boundless energy pulled me along in her journey. ... full review

NO MORE TOYS

The whole cast did a great job, particularly Luis García whose intensity and rage keeps everybody in the audience at the edge of our seats. Really intense and real. I need to recoup and remind myself that this was just a play ... full review

The Mayor's Debate of Tranquility, Nebraska

kelley pierre · July 12, 2019 certified reviewer
Jim Hanna's "The Mayor's Debate of Tranquility, Nebraska" takes a concentrated, smart and undeniably hilarious look at our political habits. But while most plays of this nature use the story to react to our current political situation, Hanna removes the corrupt underbelly altogether and replaces it with something much more immediate and far more magically sinister- turning this political play into an abstract mind f**ck of an experience. ... full review
