Leaves you with a feeling of warmth and appreciation for each day...and that laughter can heal all, even the kind that comes from the painful and macabre. Miss you, Tom. Congratulations to all involved, and thank you for pouring your souls out in his honour.... full review

ARTHUR KENG uncertified reviewer June 11, 2017
A heart-warming tribute to a man who was obviously loved by many. Sincere performances and a lot of humor. A genuine exploration of human idiosyncrasies that all come together to paint a picture of a man who seemed incredibly in tune with the questions we seek but often can't find.... full review

It seems that Tom had a very unique voice, characters, storylines and it was nice to see someone's work weaved together. Tony's piece at the end nicely wrapped up this touching tribute. ... full review

An hour of warmth, exploration, the kindness of Tom's heart, weaving a quilt of what he may have been thinking in his unpublished works. So proud of this company for having the courage to put these on their feet. Extraordinary performances from Marisa O'Brien, Darryl Armbruster and Cheryl Huggins. The end left me in tears, as Tony Foster completely wrapped up the show in an unexpected, clever and heartfelt way. ... full review

A fantastic experience of the works of the late Tom Stanczyk. The one-acts were all very enjoyable and quite professional, with what I thought was a deep and wonderful impression of a man I didn't know. I felt like at the end of the play, I did know a part of him and I felt the loss of a playwright as well as a friend. ... full review

I loved the show. I was impressed with the acting and the professionalism of the production.... full review


A show beyond this reality? A one-man cabaret about never, EVER fitting in. Told through four days in the 90's. Described as, "Reinventing the form," "amateur," "musically outstanding," "a waste of time," "earnest, heartbreaking, & real."

SACRED FOOLS brings 3 new shows to HFF19

A devised adaptation of a Greek classic about corruption, weakness & power; a hilarious tale of a highly-trained marksman/history teacher; and a heartwarming comedy about an overbearing stage mother and her hapless son attempting to stage a comeback
