Outstanding performances, imaginative direction, gorgeous movement, and the most memorable sound-and-lighting design package you’re likely to hear-and-see at this year’s Hollywood Fringe combine to make the West Coast Premiere of Jess Shoemaker’s Jason & (Medea) one of Fringe 2015’s most must-see productions.

I wasn't sure what to expect when buying tickets for this show. I knew the story - studied it (too much) in school - and wasn't quite sure how they were going get the audience on board. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. The telling and the direction were great - but what really makes this show special is the actors. Their performances (particularly from the two leads) blew me away. SEE IT!... full review
