My overall impression

Perhaps the most brilliant show I have seen in quite some time, “Rock in her Pocket” is a combination of witty, sensitive, thought provoking dialogue and exceptional acting. Alix Angeles delivers a performance where the lines between what is real and what is performance are blurred. Not only are there intense meta-textual moments, where actress and text become one, but the audience is brought in to the quirky, sad, romantic, erotic world of Virginia Wolf and feel as though they too are an integral part of the performance. As we were warned before the start of the play, there were in fact profound moments, moments of clarity where we all realized that we were in fact crazy… or sane…. depending. If you miss this show, you are missing something very important.

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."
