PAIGE ROSSETTI certified reviewer June 10, 2015
Absolutely hilarious! I found myself laughing out loud and thinking "that's so true!" throughout the show. I was amazed how connected I felt to the characters, even though each couple is only portrayed for a few minutes. Adults Embracing Failure is a must-see!... full review

A must-see with some incredible talent! The actors use comedy, a range of emotion and even some music to touch on all stages of love and relationships in a fresh and resonating way. Highly recommended! ... full review
JEREMY SAJE certified reviewer June 14, 2015
Very well done! Linda and Josh are engaging, funny, and moving through this piece. Very funny and, at times, dramatic, this show explores dating with a fresh take that will appeal to all adults from 18 - 99. Exceptional pacing and comic timing make this show a treat.... full review

With all the sharpness and smart comedy of a Second City sketch show, Dating: AEF was not only funny and entertaining, but also touched on real human emotion that we all make so raw and available every time we open our hearts up to a new relationship. Both of the actors were strong and have great comedic timing, as well as great chemistry together. ... full review

DATING is truly heart-warming. Heart-warming for three distinct reasons - wonderful performances from Josh and Lindy. Delightful observations of humanity. Some glorious endings to the tales - happy and sad. This is top quality, slick, professional, engaging work, where the performers really care about acting, staging, the audience, and each other. I know they have an extended run at the Hudson after the Fringe, and I have no doubt the Fringe will create a following for this talented duo. ... full review

A great duo, with lots of heartfelt moments, and much comedy. The song at the end was both clever and well done. I was very pleased to watch this play with so many strong contenders. This was a stand out for sure. ... full review
JONATHAN WICKREMASINGHE-KUHN certified reviewer June 18, 2015
The two performers bring a number of different characters to life, including a few couples whose stories we follow from beginning to end. Along the way, we get a few vignettes about dating life, including some hilarious pick-up and break-up lines. I laughed quite a bit and was pleasantly surprised by the turns some of the scenes took. And finally, there was one moment that completely ripped my heart out in the best of ways. Highly recommended! ... full review
SEAN BORING certified reviewer June 18, 2015
A nice piece of theater that both entertains and endears. The natural and easy chemistry between the leads heightens the material. Lots of relatable scenarios that are both subtle and universal. Definitely worth checking out!!... full review

What a show! Lindy and Josh are absolute talents that will knock you off your feet in ways you didn't know possible. Charming, endearing, and engaging are a handful of adjectives that come to mind when describing this show. Seamlessly directed, these two use minimal props and maximum acting chops to bring us to both hilarious and heartfelt places in the "dating" world. You can easily pinpoint moments of a "Second City, Chicago-Roots" feel, especially during their transition "button" beats that never fail to entertain. These two truly raise the bar. We need more theatre like this in Los Angeles.... full review
