Review by JOAQUIN CAMILO

June 15, 2017

What I liked

Adam moved through the stage with so much commitment and play. Shih-wei added so much levity with his unique charm as he addressed the audience. His drum playing is absolutely gorgeous to watch and riveting. The chemistry that these two shared on stage was palatable.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

I thought that this show is uniquely riveting. It combines dancing, music, spoken word, and improvisation. Adam Kerbel’s vision is ahead of it’s time. I would definitely recommend you to go watch this show, I may even go watch it again! This show seems to me like the beginnings of Adam’s vision come to life. It’s very raw, and it feels very much in a state of infancy and play. This is where all great art begins! Bravo to Adam, Shih-wei and their team!

To Richard!

A world premiere from Hollywood and Edinburgh Fringe award winner Jessica Durdock Moreno. A white lady and a Latino man cross paths in the woods of Connecticut. Chaos ensues. Hilarity abounds. There may be hugging. Discount code HUG for $10 tickets.

Shiva for Anne Frank

A celebration of Jewish identity, girlhood, and the life of an extraordinary young woman that begs the question, did she just make Anne Frank's death about herself? Arrive early for bagels and babka!
