I enjoyed the great acting and how engaging Skin Jobs was. One Asian woman has been tasked with digitally enhancing an actress face to make her look Asian, even though she’s white and her best friend is shocked that she’s actually going to do it. What drove the message home is how much more outraged was her friend than her. Suddenly you’re entrapped in their argument and can’t quite decide whose side you’re on.... full review

As someone who works in Hollywood, this play really struck a chord. I think it touches on things that so many of us struggle with. In an industry that is built on fantasy, how do you address the very real concerns of whitewashing and misogyny? ... full review

Strong, character-driven dialogue tells a story full of hot-button topics in a way that never feels preachy or like an essay.... full review
SOO CHYUN certified reviewer June 20, 2018
Brilliant writing. It touches on the subject of controversial issues and the effects it places on the actors involved in it. The portrayal of the two friends' conflict was so real. Skinjob delicately addresses differing viewpoints through both characters while taking the biases of social status in mind. Kerri and Viv are right in ways while also wrong in others too. The writers spared no expense on this 30-minute show through a rich narrative. I enjoyed every second of it. ... full review

DREW PETRIELLO certified reviewer June 15, 2018
Not only does this play wrestle with some very important questions in our modern zeitgeist, but the escalation of conflict is masterful - just when I thought the play was easing up, it would twist the knife a little harder. Made me uncomfortable in a good good way.... full review
