A fun piece with a lot to say, HOW TO BE LAZY AND NOT FEEL GUILTY constantly switches tones and narrative devices in a way that keeps the audience on its toes. You will certainly never be bored.... full review

The execution of the show was humorous and frenetic, silly and overdone at times, earnest at others. What impressed me most about the show was the point that it was making: that far too often we place far too much importance in the things that we have to do, as opposed to the people we care about around us. That’s a message that resonates ... The execution of the show wasn’t perfect. It was Fringe, after all. It was a bit overdone, the freneticism distracted at times from the story. If it is to move and expand into a longer piece with a longer life for traditional venues, it needs expansion, deeper fleshing out of the characters and relationships, and better understanding of the drives and changes. It also needs to show stronger motivation, ... full review

Leaky Faucet and Son's debut production really comes out of the gate rip roaring. This show houses many methods of conveying the story's broad plot line (which is too close to home for me to touch on), and constantly engages the audiences attention. I feel many of the design elements were thought through, and the cast had a strong handle on their characters and motivations. I saw this production at first preview/ the first public performance, and there were a couple moments that were not as clean as I think the cast was hoping to achieve, however, with their run I'm certain it'll tighten up. Overall, Entertaining. ... full review

Drew has written a fun, zippy comic play that zings along quite nicely. The play itself, which runs just under an hour, follows a character Jenine who is haunted by the relentless voices in her head. These voices are played brilliantly by three actors using flashlights and other fun props as they torment her onstage and is a nice reflection and mirror of where society in the U.S has ended up in our quest for perfection and love of self-improvement. The playwright, in my opinion, is asking when is enough self-improvement enough? Despite her boyfriend, Thomas, being in love with her, Jenine's always got just one more thing she needs to accomplish. We see her journey as she battles these voices. ... full review

Really powerful overall message. As a person who understands the struggles of overworking and not taking the time to be content with one's accomplishments and relax, the overarching message of the show hit home.... full review

I really enjoyed this show and its take on modern day society and culture. I found it to be really funny! I literally laughed out loud. The writing is witty, and the energy of the show never dies down. It’s to the point, and in my opinion, so relevant! ... full review

Drew and the crew do a great job of capturing the frustration, heartbreak, and misery that come with being a young and creative person trying to have it all. It's fun, with a very distinct set of humor, and the crew did a really great job of balancing that humor with its more serious themes. Plus, the stagecraft itself courtesy of Natasha Gualy was really fun and creative -- bargain-bin budgeting at its finest.... full review

This play is very much a high concept story. I'm a fan of philosophy and existentialism is one of my favorite subjects. Watching the way the storytelling unfolds definitely keeps you thinking. ... full review

The kind of show fringe is all about! It doesn't follow any rules or conventions, and says exactly what it needs to say exactly when it needs to say it, even if it has to interrupt itself in the process. Dark, but not caustic, the show constantly mixes hope and desperation, and the result is something I think everyone in the audience could relate to. ... full review
