So, this is more specifically a "suggestion" than I typically like to give, because hey, this isn't my show, after all. But I just have to say,because I see a future for this show- I think this is begging to be something a little different than what it is- maybe a solo show- we either need WAY more of the reporter, or way less... or maybe keep Rachel without doing too much to the script and simply make her sit in the front row and give all of the stage space to Jonathan- the current setup takes away from the impact of the piece- also the current blocking minimizes the potential of the whole thing... This is an important show that should be tweaked a bit and then taken on the road - we need to talk about this topic and this show does a grea... full review
TRACEY PALEO, GIA ON THE MOVE (OFFICIAL PRESS) certified reviewer June 20, 2018
Thought-provoking. It’s a juicy, power-play that seems to bring just a little bit more justice to a circumspect situation.... full review

BOB LEGGETT certified reviewer June 17, 2018
The premise and story were timely, in light of the outrage over recent occurrences, but the cast seemed unprepared to turn that outrage into a memorable show that would spark change. ... full review
CELINA LEE SURNIAK certified reviewer June 16, 2018
This show is powerful. Relevant. And downright nauseating. The actors did a wonderful job at presenting the juxtaposition of the reasons behind so many of the mass shootings that have occurred within the last two decades. The writer has a wonderful grasp on language. Congratulations on the packed house, guys!... full review

Framed as a conversation between a journalist and a man convicted of killing multiple people in a school shooting, this piece does not concentrate on the issue of guns, instead it concentrates on the issues of people. Almost underplayed by the cast, it is effective in raising the issues but does not offer solutions. This piece wants you to think Glitch is a message piece, for sure. It does not hide its intentions very deeply. What you see is what you are to walk away with… we need to focus on the issue of guns, gun control and the role guns play in American society. ... full review

Unsettling and uncomfortable. This type of story features the dialogue we need to be having during these times of uncontrollable gun violence.... full review
DAVID EVAN STOLWORTHY certified reviewer June 13, 2018
The show takes a dark look at the inner mind of a school shooter. Intense, deeply-thought out, and mesmerizing; the play tackles the harsh realities about the necessities for gun control and the reason for it. Will be recommending this to everyone. ... full review
