APRIL WISH certified reviewer June 10, 2019
This show blew me away. Fiercely creative, incredibly revealing, hilarious but thoughtful. Both of these women have an incredible mastery of being concise. They chose every word, every movement, cleverly. While attacking two very different themes with intelligence, giving the audience a new perspective on feminism and death, it was also extremely moving. Awkward in the best ways, bold and quirky, the shows complimented each other perfectly. ... full review

This is the epitome of a fantastic Fringe experience! Something superbly creative using all kinds of theatrical standards and props in fresh and fun ways. Dancing, video, puppetry, the big box of surprises, wigs... and the performances polished, honest, and charming... oh, and absolutely hysterical and heart wrenching all in the same breath. ... full review

Two one-woman shows for the price of one! "Simulakra" by Alyssa Virker (hope I spelled that right). Alyssa's show is a perfect mash-up of visual and physical storytelling. Quirky, funny, and charming, with a great message in the end. I really love this kind of approach to performance. "My Dead Mom's Funeral" by Angela Beevers. Angela's show was comedy gold. There are a thousand shows about loved ones and cancer. Many try to pull it off as heartfelt comedy. This show pulls it off in spades! Absolutely loved it. You owe it to yourself to get a ticket for this great duo of shows.... full review

The two shows are so unique and different, yet somehow work together perfectly. Alyssa and Angela were both clever and genuine; their shows were moving, thought-provoking, and belly laugh-inducing. I was truly impressed and can't wait to see what they do next.... full review

I am still thinking about the emotional impact of these shows days later! I have to admit I didn’t know what to expect when going in to two back-to-back one woman shows, but trust me, it is beyond anything you could imagine. These performances are creatively risky, emotionally compelling, and dare to tackle big themes and societal issues. And on top of that, they are riotously funny! You will be mystified. You will cry. You will laugh. You will walk away with a new perspective. ... full review

A surreal exploration of human pathos- what makes us move and why. The woman- Alyssa Virker, I believe- communicates through wild movement and lightning flashes of character, maintaining a quick tempo throughout. The second play, with Angela Beevers, maintained the rapid fire, and was a supremely satisfying next act. She explored the darkness with a steady eye, and she found gold in unlikely places.... full review

Two bold, unique solo shows for the price of one bold unique solo show! Both shows take you to uncomfortable places and beyond with a lot of wit, bite, and intelligence. ... full review

Full writeup at https://cahighways.org/wordpress/?p=15380. The performance consisted of two one-woman shows that were very distinct from each other, with no program to provide any context or background. I wasn’t that crazy about the first one-woman show, but the second was great.... full review

Shiva for Anne Frank

"If you are a human being in LA, you NEED to see this show!" "Long-overdue and distressingly relevant." "Raw and powerful. Heartbreaking and hilarious."
