blackboxing

javier rodriguez · June 16, 2019
I am not a theater buff. I didn’t catch many of the references to the theater scene. And it didn’t matter. It was fun, funny, and appropriately touching at the end. Very well written. gratifying to watch performers and audience having a great time together. Really felt, in some ways, to a rocky horror picture show screening in nyc, circa ‘78. Lots of energy. I recommend, especially if you’ve been dragged around to several one man shows in the past. This is an homage and a middle finger to al... full review

WHAT? a story show

monique reymond · June 16, 2019
I very much enjoyed What? A Story Show. In most traditional story-telling shows, each performer is given their allotted time to share their tale. This show takes story-telling to another level. Each story is broken down into segments and the performer will begin to narrate their personal tale. Then the story is brought to life and acted out with the other performers in the ensemble. Director Goodhart takes an original concept and soars with it. Each story is deeply personal and we get to actually... full review

One of my favorite shows so far at the Fringe Festival! The casting of all the Stranger Things characters was spot on ... what a talented group of actors and actresses!

BIRTHDAY

monique reymond · June 16, 2019
GO SEE BIRTHDAY! I have seen many one person shows and this ranks as one of my all time favorites. Michael takes the audience on an emotional rollercoaster. You're laughing your ass off one minute and crying the next - and you love every minute of it. Michael is vulnerable on stage, and I can only imagine how cathartic it is for him, because it was cathartic for the audience. We are right there with him as he shares with us a year filled with unimaginable loss, but skillfully manages to never lea... full review

An American Video Store

sang kim · June 16, 2019
A truly entertaining piece that takes you back to the era of the video store, in this case Blockbuster. It was humorous, educational and very touching as the writer added a great personal storyline to parallel the fall of Blockbuster. I felt the range of emotions throughout the production, and there were genuine laughs from the whole audience. The writer/director/narrator did a fantastic job parsing out the story and also engaging the audience with each era of Blockbuster. You'll find yoursel... full review

Temple Tantrum

sang kim · June 16, 2019
Courageous and phenomenal. A truly inspirational story that required the artist to be truly vulnerable to share such a personal and touching story of growing up in a Christian cult. Although a unique experience, the artist made things relatable so anyone could understand and feel what she went through in a sincere and honest way. A one-woman show, the production never stalled and the direction kept the storytelling fresh and dynamic. I was captivated throughout and found this to be one of ... full review

Bushwick

anonymous · June 16, 2019
I loved Bushwick. The dialogue was very real and the actors did a superb job. This is a must see. Bushwick captures a “moment on time “. Three very different young people dealing with life and in this case finding a roommate. Summer Bills is outstanding g as is the entire cast. Schuyler Mastain, writer and director, has a gift. In this case a well focused view on something we can all identify with. ... full review
