Baba, Jee (Father, Yes)

What a great show! I thoroughly enjoyed being cooped up with these characters during a hurricane. Catch this show! I really liked the characters, especially the bond between daughter and father. The actor playing the dad struck all the right notes without ever making his shortcomings so defining that he was unlikable. Ditto the boyfriend whose singleminded attention to his own studies is keeping him from a far more important lesson. And I loved how Maria was subtly divided by her very modern and American sensibilities and her familial and cultural devotions. As the child of an immigrant myself, I definitely connected with her there.

We Are Traffic - A Solo Rideshare Adventure

What a great show! So funny, moving (that's not a driving pun), and ultimately uplifting. Jonathan is a captivating performer and storyteller. He keeps you engaged for the entire running time. Everyone after the performance I saw started hugging each other. That's a pretty good reaction, I'd say!

Balls' ON

Kat rocks! What a great solo show. Tough, funny, confessional and unique. It's all her. She IS the show. What a helluva physical performance, from her dancing to her expressions, multiple characters and accents … so much energy! I got tired just crossing Santa Monica and Vine to feed the meter! But it's the mix of sweet and sadness, the funny and the tragic that really gets you. See this show!

Yellow Wallpaper

A very old school and ambitious approach to psychological horror. The visual effect of the wall itself never overwhelmed the story and the lead actress pulled off a very tricky role. I imagined watching this in black & white on Turner Classic Movies. The main actress was so crucial to pulling this off and she did great. If we didn't believe her then we couldn't stay invested in her story. She really helps sell our suspension of disbelief. My one nitpick would be to maybe just add a bit more clarity on what may have happened back at her original home and then the very ending, which might help some patrons who have a tough time getting horror. I understood it but I just wonder about those who might not be as into genre.
