What I liked

The acting, the pacing, the evolution of the story, the honesty, the amazing dialogue.

What I didn't like

I don’t have any improvements. Art is subjective and the vision of the creative team.

My overall impression

I was blown away by this production – the actors were incredible and the writing was so powerful and (sadly) true to life! The topic is one many of us are all-too-familiar with (infertility and the anguish it can bring on a relationship), and I thought the play deftly handled it in a way that made our hearts break for all of the players involved while demonizing none of them. Negative Spaces is moving, compelling, and thoughtful with a surprise ending that satisfies while packing a punch. If you like being a fly on the wall of real lives at the brink – you’ll love this show.

Five Pieces of Paper

How do you tell a story about the Holocaust without it being overwhelming? You sing in Yiddish, act, tell stories, puppeteer, clown, and bake... “Beautifully courageous and authentic performance. I laughed, I cried, and I was deeply moved.”
