What I liked

Here is a play that deserves a 1000 seat venue.
From the moment Steph (Kimber Pritts) and Greg (Roger Wan) enter the stage (from the house) the audience is intrigued and right there with them in their argument. This argument stems from Greg telling another, that he thinks his girlfriend Steph merely has a plain face.

This play explores the many facets of the term relationship — from “Bros”, to BFFs, and from husband and wife, to friends with benefits, it’s all here.

Everyone will relate to some character on the stage. Not only well written and directed, but the acting is incredible. Samuel Colby plays “Bro” and adulterant husband, Kent. Kent gives men a bad name and uses every avenue that he has to get his selfish way.

The lovely Veronica Roy plays Carly the Cop who is married to Kent and befriends Greg to squeeze information out of him. Although these two have the least of a bond (connected only through Steph) they too, pull you in with their genuine feelings.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

There is not a dull moment in this production. I would recommend RUNNING to this play.

Greenwood 1964

This brilliantly crafted fictional debate between Mr. Poitier and Mr. Belafonte eloquently explores the individual approaches on how to achieve liberation for people of color.

this world is for the frat bros

Christine just discovered an alien. Aimee is preoccupied with losing her virginity. Both sisters are finding that the sexual appetite their teenage hearts yearn for is cosmic, insatiable, and intergalactic. A new play by UCLA theatre undergrads.
