Megan Dolan's SNACK is a tightly constructed journey through the pot-holed and knotted roads of a SoCal childhood ... with the comfort of a stack of shortbread cookies. Director Chris Game tightens Ms. Dolan's finely interwoven tale with seamless blocking and astute stagecraft. Ms. Dolan inhabits everything from a lisping EST-like leader to feckless parents to a sarcastic older brother in an adept performance. Curtis Brooks' giant box of Lorna Doone cookies gives her the perfect launching pad. Definitely recommended.... full review

Always wonderful to see Megan and this time to see such a personal story. I cried, I laughed, and that Giant Lorna Doone set piece! ... full review

When I met Megan she made it sound as if she were just a mom wanting to put on a show about snacks. Which alone sounded amazing to me since I love snacks. But it turned out that Megan is actually a theatre veteran who has a long successful acting career and it showed in her performance. She was funny, moving and hit just the right levels with a portrayal of herself throughout her childhood and current life as a mom. It is not a stationary show, Megan moves the story along with her entire body and the entire stage. I was thoroughly entertained and would recommend the show to anyone. ... full review

Not only are all of the late 70s and early 80s references a treat to re-live, but underneath all that humor is a story I could relate to as a mother who (sometimes) is struggling to keep it all together. I love it when shows take us on a ride, and then sneak up on you. I was laughing one minute and then tears were streaming the next. Thank you for sharing your snacks with us!... full review

Megan Dolan is captivating, funny, clever. I didn't know what to expect exactly... I mean... I like snacks. I was surprised and moved to hear about an childhood spent navigating the world of divorce, new step moms, cult-like experiential weekends and sibling bond tested by it all. Really funny and insightful.... full review

This was a great show! Megan was the most believable 8 year old I have seen in a long time - more believable than most actual 8 year olds! Here energy was incredible - she put everything out there on the stage, her joy, her pain, her humor and her sense of play. One warning, this show made me very hungry!... full review
LESLIE MURPHY certified reviewer June 15, 2015
