Jordan Maverick, History Teacher

jonathan tipton meyers · July 12, 2019 certified reviewer
A viciously biting satire of the horrifying prospect of weaponizing teachers, Jordan Maverick walks the tightrope of comedy on this subject. Make no mistake, however, they're not calmly walking across that rope, these outrageous performers and shaking that rope wildly and the results are disarming and entirely enjoyable. Kudos to Ryan Gowland, JJ Mayes, Sacred Fools and the entire cast. ... full review

THE BULLY PROBLEM

susannah snowden-ifft · July 12, 2019 certified reviewer
A fantastic show that is fun, simple and beautifully celebrates being different and standing up for yourself. The movement and song weave together effortlessly to create a story that despite it's simplicity, still finds you gripping your seat all the way through. ... full review

Mr. Yunioshi

vivi thai · July 12, 2019 certified reviewer
Moving and fun, this show brought up a near-and-dear issue of appropriation and taking a look at the other side. This is exactly what "meta" is meant for! J. Elijah Cho takes a controversial piece of artistic history and fills it with compassion while still not condoning the facts. He got to the heart of the matter in a really fun way, proving that comedy can still punch you in the gut.... full review

FERTILE.

vivi thai · July 12, 2019 certified reviewer
Fertile is a wonderfully written play exploring all the emotional nuances of what it takes to bring a child into this techno-godlike world. Heather Dowling is magnificent in telling her candid, compassionate and surprisingly complex story. Seeing multiple characters' points of view, I almost forgot I was watching a one-woman show! ... full review

I'm Jennifer Mother F*cking Lawrence

catherine collier · July 10, 2019 certified reviewer
Extremely fun and original show! Christy Lee Hughes was hilarious as J Law (and transitioned flawlessly into her super confident drunk alter ego Gail!), while Alice Winslow was great as closet psychopath Rose Byrne. With a fabulous script and amazing cast and crew, this show proved to be a great time for its audience!... full review

Supportive White Parents

amanda lainberger · July 09, 2019 certified reviewer
This was such a hilarious but full story show all crammed into a small half hour. It pokes fun at how different types of parents-supportive completely in what their kids want or supportive in pushing their kids to strive for the better-and the good and bad of both. It was so quirky and at the same time joking on true facts to where it made it even more hilarious.... full review

Forgetting not Forgotten

amanda lainberger · July 09, 2019 uncertified reviewer
I’ve seen many one-person shows, all of which have their own unique story to tell, but Petal brought SO much emotion into this storytelling and I was moved, touched, crying, and emotional throughout the whole show.... full review

The One-Man Improvised Musical

amanda lainberger · July 09, 2019 uncertified reviewer
This was hilarious beginning to end. Improv always impresses me, as I’m not one to be able to think of things on the fly, but a whole musical off of one phrase? Excellent!... full review

Sins

amanda lainberger · July 09, 2019 certified reviewer
I found this show quite unique-breaking the fourth wall with an actor who actually an audience member made the show interesting and comedic. It brought to light the differences between acting and directing/writing, different styles/talent levels of acting, and what acting means for different people. ... full review

Lincoln 2020

amanda lainberger · July 09, 2019 uncertified reviewer
This was one of my favorite shows of the Fringe. It was smartly comedic, and had two different endings depending on who the audience voted for, which was great! It brought to light some of the many crazy changes and different expectations when it comes to politics today compared to the 1800’s. ... full review

Fight Song!

amanda lainberger · July 09, 2019 certified reviewer
This show is such an interesting take on what happens when you die-heaven/hell/the in-between? It also raises the questions on what it’s like to live in a religious setting and how hypocritical that way of living can be.... full review
