Mormon Playgirl

bob leggett · June 16, 2019 certified reviewer
Sheffield does a good job of telling it through her portrayal of a number of characters, but the central one was relegated to a too-short segment at the very end of her show. There is a lot of potential for this story, but unfortunately it was not used. ... full review

Pho Girl

alexandra fiallos · June 16, 2019 certified reviewer
A beautiful play about identity and culture. Pho Girl goes deep beyond the surface of what we think we know about Asian culture. It digs into the roots of cultural division and the struggles of being biracial. An honest, funny play that through fantastic storytelling poses the right questions that makes you think about how we have viewed identity and worth for so many generations.... full review

It’s easy to judge people you disagree with from a digital disconnect; it’s more difficult when you inhabit the same space. Saving Cain pits an Evangelical mother, Laurelai (Leah Verrill, equal parts infuriating and hilarious and nakedly human), against her teenage son, Levi (Lenny Hernandez, as good as he always is, defiant and doofy and tragic) amidst the tumultuous political landscape of the mid-2000s to the rocky, opioid-driven present. Strong performances ground the production. I was refresh... full review
