Best time I've spent at a play in a while. In 30 min John managed to educate us about homeless and shine a light on the ridiculousness of our egos. Super creative concept and timely with out obsession with social media.... full review

It's very difficult to be funny about such a serious issue, but this show nails it at every level. This is one of the best scripted shows I've seen in a long time. ... full review

While I respect wanting to shine a light on what a serious problem homelessness is, this show mishandled the message it tried to impart. It wants to be ridiculous fun, it wants to be meaningful, but was ultimately neither.... full review

I was immersed into a street sidewalk the moment I found a seat to watch the show which is part of the charm of New Kid On The Block: homeless person roaming around the stage, begging audience for money, a couple sitting on their cell phones ignoring them, pedestrians walking by... By the time the show begins, I felt I was familiar with this story, as an Angeleno who sees this scene almost everywhere and have debated whether or not help a homeless person or simply pretend they’re invisible.... full review

I really enjoyed the show. The show deals with the serious issue of homelessness but comes at it from a comedic direction. So you are not hit over the head with the message but the message is also not diminshed by the comedic approach. The direction is interesting and engaging. Many of the actors play multliple roles who cascade into the scene and allow fresh characters to constantly appear.... full review

So clever and insightful - a great look into the homeless issue in our country, tied with the social media issue in our country. Very funny, yet also touching. ... full review

Perfect way to address serious issues through comedy! I loved everything about this show. The minute you sit in, you are immersed in the story, you sit on the other side of the street. It's a very smart way to approach today's society with an innocent and naive point of view form this New Kid On The Block! Congratulations to everyone!!!... full review

"New Kid on the Block" took a problem that is challenging this city and the country, and approached it with respectful humor. The cast was sharp, and at 30 minutes, it's a great and quick Fringe show to attend.... full review
