BENJAMIN SCHWARTZ certified reviewer June 16, 2015
As a huge lover of old Hollywood, silent films and vintage everything... I absolutely adored this little show. At the helm of it all is adorable Julisa trying to find her way as an old-fashioned gal in a much different Los Angeles than she had bargained for. Her guide of "tips" to get noticed is from an era long past. She visit hotspot locations in hopes of being seen but upon her arrival, finds out that the hippest place in town has turned into a popular retail chain. This outdated list leads her to find out how much Hollywood has changed from glitz to glib. Julisa demonstrates her silent film background with great success. Her movements are exact, well formulated, choreographed and everything plays to the house very well. Her char... full review

Julisa Wright may be the new Carol Burnett if her Dear Hollywood one woman show at the Ruby is a glimpse of more to come. Fine comedic writing crossed with impeccable timing and expressive body language brings several characters to life in this arrival to Hollywood experience. Don't miss it!... full review

Adorable & SOOOOOOOO FUN! If you love Old Hollywood, you will LOVE THIS! Julissa taps into the very essence of the silent era w/grace & ease. As an audience member, I just couldn't help but fall in love with her main character as she interacts with a number of seedy yet fascinating individuals. See this!... full review

Dear Hollywood is a cute, funny, sometimes-cynical-but-still-somewhat-starry-eyed take on modern-day Hollywood that gets Tinseltown spot-on. Julisa is a multi-talented performer and writer and all of her skills and smarts are on display here.... full review

JEN KENYON certified reviewer June 23, 2015
This brief and bubbly charmer is a delight. Full of fun archetypal characters portrayed by the shape-shifting Julisa Wright, this piece is easy on the soul. Great music too. Add this one to your list.... full review

It was well worth the moderately long journey to Hollywood Fringe to see "Dear Hollywood." Julisa Wright showcased her many talents in this sweet journaled road trip from hometown to Hollywood. Witty writing and quick pacing made the 30 minutes fly by. Ms Wright revealed many characters from crazy to cute via her definitive development and physical/vocal performance skills. Veteran actress "Lola Swanson" provided the thread that tied the story together, Dahling! Pluck and spunkiness defined Mary, the star-struck youngster, who followed her dream - one that was full of bumps AND grinds! Entertainment ghosts accompanied Mary along her journey including songstress Garland and silent legends Keaton and Chaplin. They guided the young girl'... full review
