DENISE BARRETT certified reviewer June 04, 2018
This was a wonderful show. It slowly unfolds a relstionship amd all of it's funny, akward, regretful, and loving moments. It will make you laugh and cry. It depicts two people choosing to love each other and work at it for their entire lives and it is very sweet.... full review

features four characters (two of them playing multiple roles) is the simple but profound tale of a man and woman who fall in love, staying that way. It might seem nostalgic but is not, not really. Neither is it sentimental. Genuine pain they experience does not make it sad, nor do the often funny/silly antics at the heart of this love story make it a comedy. Just a simple but profound story. It explores why maybe we've put so much investment in the idea of romantic love. Because when it does work, when two people do click and when they make the commitment of staying with each other through disappointment, confusion, betrayal, tension, boredom, forgiveness, etc. then it becomes very much the stuff of dreams. The cast does a fine job, w... full review

Possibly the most powerful performance I have ever seen. Emotional and raw, love story and tragedy. ... full review
BEN ATKINSON uncertified reviewer June 11, 2018
I caught the opening of this fantastic, funny, heart-wrenching, piece this weekend. Jacob Smith’s script (based on a short piece that I had the honor of performing years ago) is grounded, elegant and precise in its portrait of a life’s worth of love. Julia Plostnieks’s work is endearingly natural and subtle (when it needs to be), and Michael Lutheran complements this with a sincere energy that transforms and matures appropriately throughout. Definitely worth checking out.... full review

Met Again is the latest in a string of hits that Theater Unleashed has mounted at Fringe. This show had everything a great Fringe show needs – amazing acting, a compelling story, and a stellar audience . . .It was beautiful, bittersweet, and gave us hope that we could all find a love like these two shared. ... full review
KELLEY PIERRE certified reviewer June 11, 2018
We humans are somewhat insatiable when it comes to the two person love story (and we have all the films, novels and plays to prove it) but "Met Again" tells that story in one of the most exceptional ways I've ever seen. The two main character's interact with each other from that honest place- when you've been with someone so long that you only speak in inside jokes, when your life together has truly become it's own love story. But how do you convey that story to others? (Preferably, with a monstrous doorbell and a blah blah Reverend.) ... full review

A beautiful and painful love story. Jake Smith’s script is magical. The storyline is simple yet complex. The chemistry between Michael Lutheran and Julia Plostnieks is effortless. You could feel the connections between them as if they were real. Every moment – joy, betrayal and loss - resonated and generated real emotion. Met Again is brilliant. Highly recommend!... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 21, 2018
Met Again blew me away... what a wonderful show without gimmicks! It left me far more emotionally touched than I ever expected, and I continue to think about it the next day. This show is what we need right now; a simple, beautifully detailed love story without the weight of (real life) current events crushing you. It's an escape that will whisk you away fast and leave you breathless. Never a dull moment!... full review
MARTIN RODRIGUEZ certified reviewer June 21, 2018
Wow. This show was so touching and moving. It was a beautiful love story that came full circle. I appreciated how the story strayed away from stereotypical love stories and had real-life scenarios in them. It made it feel more true, if that makes sense. I laughed, I cried, and I told those I love just how much love them after leaving the theatre that day. Thank you for sharing this story. Met Again is a MUST SEE. ... full review
