JOHN PATRICK DALY certified reviewer June 25, 2019
Powerful writing and great actors combined with familiar story structure and clever staging makes this a engaging, emotional, and (for me) educational show about health, social expectations, and how to deal with growing up in a world that doesn't like you for you. ... full review

The female experience runs DEEP and if you didn’t get that by the title, you will get it by the end of the show! ... full review

Crack Whore, Bulimic, Girl Next Door is a bold, gut wrenching and impossibly funny exploration of the tormented inner world of a depressed bulimic woman. The acting is raw, edgy and fearless. Sound grim? It's not. Marnie Olsons writing is so devastatingly self deprecating and honest that with a few dance numbers, a rollicking sound track, artful lighting by Joshua Silva, and fast paced witty staging by director Jenny Chun it all comes crashing together in this riveting entertaining one act roller coaster of a play. A warning: Do not feel badly for laughing inappropriately, the humor, like a healing beam of bouncing light is intentionally pointed at the darkest scariest parts of ourselves.... full review

Such powerful storytelling touching on so many of the complicated, personal and painful aspects of "growing up" to be a woman. Told with extraordinary honesty!... full review

Smart, honest show with great actors! Raw and purposeful. My friend identified with the entire story - it felt personal for her - and was delighted with the ending. Thank you for being so brave. ... full review
LEA WALKER certified reviewer June 28, 2019
A interestingly executed, smartly written, dark and painfully funny look into societal pressures, body judgement and their effects on young girls and women.... full review
KATHERINE KING certified reviewer June 28, 2019
A portrait of inner suffering that is strange and yet strangely familiar. On the one hand, how many of us can relate to feeling we have a foreign object in our body that drives us to insanity, but on the other hand how many of us can relate to having tortured thoughts that drive us to insanity?... full review

Wonderful and powerful! A very relevant piece of theatre that I wish I would have seen when I was a teenager. It would have helped me and probably even saved some. This play deals with body image issues in a world where we are never enough the way we are. Three actors play the same person and I love that. It was so greatly done and performed. ... full review

I can’t say whether I liked it or not - it was a very surreal experience for me. Frankly, this piece touched my soul in many uncomfortable ways. I think that may have been the point. I cried throughout the show and then let my guttural, fat, ugly sobs loose on the car ride home. I think this show is going to stick with me for awhile, for better or worse. So... thank you? At least I’ll have something to dig into at my therapy session tomorrow!... full review
