Red Bar

mimi kmet · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
Very dark and very thought-provoking. I was captivated and eager to see what was next with this support group for serial killers. This is definitely a play for deep soul-searching, not for mere entertainment. ... full review

The Same Room

Kelley Pierre never ceases to amaze the theatre world. Another well-written and well-acted show that was by far one of the top and favorite shows of Fringe for me. ... full review

Blackboxing is a clever parody of one person shows that manages to deliver an important message without hitting you over the head. ... full review

Always Open

martin rodriguez · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
An enjoyable time with a great cast that tells this story so very well. Smooth like fine whiskey, this show was. I laughed and even had a few moments of "hmmm...". Solid production all around. ... full review

The Last PowerPoint

ian kaye · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
So good in so many ways. It's dark, ironic, absurd, hilarious, poignant with an existentialist twist. Ben manages to pack heavy themes into a show that feels playful and funny and afterwards forces you to actually think about your life and what you should do with your time on earth. ... full review

The London Rose

martin rodriguez · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
I walked in not knowing what to expect (came to the show to support my friend, Brian) and walked out amazed. One of my favorite musicals of this year's Fringe. Great storytelling, wonderful musical, tied all together with an amazing ensemble. Great job to all involved. You should be proud of this production!... full review

The Duchess & the Stripper

matt ritchey · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
Fantastic. It's always heartening to see a drama at the Fringe which really nails it - and boy, this nails it. Great writing, great direction, and the performances of Blaire Chandler and Alli Miller are outstanding. They each have such ease on stage, inhabiting the characters like a second skin, and playing off one another (and the great Krista Conti) beautifully with zipping dialogue. With an important and powerful theme, and THE DUCHESS AND THE STRIPPER is one of the best shows at the Fringe th... full review

Mr. Yunioshi

paul yen · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
Executives, writers, casting, directors, etc. all need to see this show. This is what Hollywood needs. During a time that being "Asian" is suddenly the Hollywood "it" thing, we need to take a trip down memory lane to see why so much damage has already been done. "Mr. Yunioshi" a huge step forward toward new opportunities.... full review

Sealed

rachael yahne · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
In short: incredible. Candid, sweet, yet darkly funny and brutally honest, SEALED manages to be both revealing and self-effacing. Even as someone already impressed by Jane's work ethic and talent, I still found myself blown away by her ability to combine humor with heartbreak; to do so alone on a stage with only her life as her material makes it all the more remarkable. An enlightening look at love, growth, and womanhood, SEALED successfully captures the oppressed, curious spirit of all women thr... full review

GEORGE.

anonymous · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
Having been a longtime Star Wars fan, I enjoyed seeing George.and learning more about the man behind the phenomenon. I would recommend this as required viewing for any fan of Star Wars. Intelligent, thoughtful and witty writing. Evocative, playful and passionate acting. Smooth and creative transitions. Beautiful and unique set posters. Sublime soundtrack that you knew was there but didn’t detract from what was happening on stage. All of the above were successful due to the artistic di... full review

The Last Croissant

annie mcvey · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
This show was outstanding! The direction, acting work, and stunning design were more fully realized than I've ever seen at a Fringe show; it's insane what this company was able to pull off! There was a full set and gorgeous costumes and lighting! Funny and well-paced. Don't miss this show!... full review

Crack Whore, Bulimic, Girl-Next-Door

john patrick daly · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
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

MIL GRUS

john patrick daly · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
I have never been more present with an audience experiencing a thing than I was in this show. Disturbing, shocking, hilarious, provocative, and so, so, so weird, I loved every moment of this show and never want to watch it again. Which is good, because each show is bound to be insanely different. ... full review

Scarlett Fever

john patrick daly · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
Fun, riveting, pulsing, Scarlett Fever brings you into a world of rhythm and ego as artists and producers alike try to find the secret to "it". Very well written, with good acting and some great choreography, you will be glued to the action from first drum beat to last. ... full review

A Time Traveler's Guide to the Present

john patrick daly · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
Touching, exciting, emotional, exceptionally acted and written, this show takes you through the journey of time, love, and life itself. I cannot recommend this show enough. ... full review

Cave Girl the Musical

angela beevers · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
Glennis is a wonderful storyteller with an amazing stage presence. I loved the way her show was designed and how she interacted with her audience. Such an incredible, brave, raw performance with so much vulnerability and also, somehow, humor and a full musical! This is like a dark comedy version of Enchanted. I love it, the only thing I want is more! Go see this show, and this incredible performer, who really can sing!!... full review

This Way Yonder

angela beevers · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
What an amazing cast. Marjorie and Kelly had amazing chemistry up there as mother and daughter. This is a story I haven't seen before, you really feel the setting as the staging and sound and lighting design makes you feel as though you have entered a bayou! It's such a sweet and fun story, with some really great acting in the center. ... full review

Treason

angela beevers · June 25, 2019 certified reviewer
A really beautifully staged and directed play. The acting was so strong and really blew me away. Such a stark and interesting concept and a unique take on today's society! At times dark and scary, but mostly just impactful and thought-provoking, Treason is a play to see this fringe! ... full review
