CAROL NACE certified reviewer June 06, 2014
This was a set of monologues. Some of them were very good and very well acted. This show started right on time and finished on time. Great job--this makes it easy to go to multiple shows.... full review

Tom Cavanaugh has crafted a wonderful piece about his experiences in Los Angeles. The real life people the actors speak about are a fascinating look into just a few of the folks who have crossed Tom's life. The actors were all wonderful and brought Tom's world to life. It ran about 45 minutes and I enjoyed it so much I would have liked it to be longer. How often do you hear that? In short... Eloquent, funny and moving with marvelous performances. I would highly recommend this piece.... full review

The Last Remnants of Cops, Robbers, and Hollywood Cowboys is a collection of monologues dealing with the "real people of Los Angeles". It is, in fact, an homage to the people of Los Angeles masterfully written by New Yorker, Tom Cavanaugh, and well-acted,especially by Rhonda Christou and Tad Yagi (Joey Cheesecake).... full review

There's nothing like the feeling of being swept up in a good show. That elusive combination of writing you want to hear and actors you want to see. The Last Remnants of Cops, Robbers & Hollywood Cowboys does it and does it well. Mid show on the night I was there a pretty loud commotion erupted in the back of the theatre. The actor on stage, brilliantly, registered the disturbance in character and then never skipped a beat. The audience, so deeply engaged in the show was not distracted and the attention stayed on the stage. That's very hard to pull off. I'm looking forward to seeing more work between this writer and these actors. They were all good and all engaging, especially John Ross Clark. I could have watched him all night. ... full review

"The Last Remnants Of Cops, Robbers And Hollywood Cowboys" is a really interesting group of monologues taken from Tom Cavanaugh's experiences in LA. I thought the entire piece was extremely well-written and I enjoyed the performances by the diverse cast of actors. I do hope that this show can be expanded on, because I feel it has a lot of potential and I'd love to see it be made into a full-length play (the stories are that good!). Side note: the goodie bags handed out at the end of the show were a wonderful touch and showed all of us audience members that Tom and his cast were thinking about us. This is what Fringe is all about!... full review

This show brought back memories of the conversations, and warnings that I heard when I informed people of my interest in moving to Los Angeles myself. I really liked meeting all of the characters. Most importantly, the show served as a reminder of how fun life can be once you open up to what life offers you (people & all)...sensibly though :). I would love to see the show again, in a few, to see how it has developed over time.... full review
MATT RITCHEY certified reviewer June 19, 2014
GREAT writing and a good cast in this evening of musings on connections with Los Angelinos - but is really a meditation on the things in life that make us "alive." A strong authorial voice spread across the acting and vocal styles of unique performers! Check it out!... full review

A fun and entertaining evening. Go!!... full review
DAVID CANTOR certified reviewer June 22, 2014
The monologues presented in The Last Remnants of Cops, Robbers & Hollywood Cowboys are a series of wonderfully intimate first person stories. The feeling is like grabbing a drink with a guy who has the wildest stories. The writing is absolutely brilliant in its familiarity and at times I almost forgot I was in a theater, and instead felt like I was at a dinner party with friends. The most simplistic way to be transported and transformed by theater.... full review
