Review by TERRY TOCANTINS

June 15, 2013

My overall impression

I like my comedies to chronicle the slow and subtle de-evolution of a once great nation. Here we have two real misfits with one simple job (taking their nephew to a crappy mall) that they cannot do for the life of them. This is a play about how it’s impossible to do anything right. It reminds me of The Band’s The Weight. First beause it’s funny. But more importantly both report on a world so out of orbit that the most well intentioned person on earth constantly will get strepped on. It is not their souls that are devoid of merit, it’s a sick, sickening world full of resentment, broken promises and addiction. I ended up really liking these losers, and hating all the invisible douchenozzles that surround us in the mall of ’Merica.

Once Upon The First

It's a story about Asian American children figuring out who they are and how to be themselves!

Shiva for Anne Frank

A celebration of Jewish identity, girlhood, and the life of an extraordinary young woman that begs the question, did she just make Anne Frank's death about herself? Arrive early for bagels and babka!
