Review by MATTHEW ROBINSON

What I liked

Acting, directing, writing, set design, well balanced nuance.

What I didn't like

I wish it was a tad longer, I wanted more I wanted to see how the characters reacted to the events of the third act. Perhaps this production can be expanded one day?

My overall impression

A production as suspenseful as it is hilarious! Overflowing with great performances, sharp writing and clever staging “American Conspiracy” is one of my favorite plays of the Hollywood Fringe. Schwartz seemingly effortlessly has created an intriguing story packed with memorable characters and moments that days later I still found myself chuckling about or mulling over in reflection. Ritchey of course directed this play to look and feel so lived in and pointed. The performances all around feel genuine and robust enough to balance the weight of the situation along with everyday issues and the comedy of life’s tragedies. I cannot recommend this play enough!
