THEATRE IS THE CURE (International)

I've watched all of them and been fortunate to be a playwright for one evening. Beautifully produced, the producers make sure that there is dramaturgical/rewriting support and adequate rehearsal to ensure the medium is used to best advantage. Must see.

The Smile Revolution with Princess Wow (New York)

Close to100 days ..of uncertainty, fear , economic shifting and crisis of health. Yes, we were knee deep in a pandemic that only our ancestors would have recognized from a great distance. We watched as the news became an emergency broadcast more than daily updates. This was our landscape. Within that dim lighting was a reason to giggle, sing , but better yet....smile. For 20 minutes 3 times a week , we were able to let go of some fear, and hear some prophetic quotes that reminded us that humanity wasn’t necessarily doomed , but merely on pause as we sift through the daily challenges. Immediately I was transported to a safer period in my youth where Fran Allyson imported segments of dialogue with Koukla and Ollie , and made you smile even not knowing the moral import of the film she was showing. Having Gumby come close to the screen to give us a hug, was far more replenishing than my last year’s mind and soul , would ever have thought, and The Smile Revolution is something that I can happily sign on to. Not being a hardfast fan of the military, I can honestly say I’m part of this ever grinning army ...

Couch Readings (International)

I participated in a couch reading and loved it. Ryan was friendly and professional and hosted a successful and smooth production. It was a great opportunity to keep the acting skills up during lockdown and to play with some fresh new writing.

Mindy is the real deal. I have admired her energy, her colorfulness, and most of all her real-ness for years. It's such a pleasure to be around someone who is honestly joyful and who expresses her joy so, well, joyfully. For her to share it with all of us is a gigantic gift. Thank you, Mindy. Your joy is contagious. When you make us smile, we smile at others, and that's sort of the point, isn't it?

The Smile Revolution with Princess Wow (New York)

Mindy Fradkin has created a wonderfully enduring character in Princess Wow. She is the essence of pure joy, happiness, and acceptance. One of the most important aspects of her creation is its genuineness. Unlike many actors who easily slip in and out of their public personas, Princess Wow and Mindy are one in the same. To me, Mindy is *always* Princess Wow and vice versa. That means when she performs “in-character”, no transformation is required. Her presentation breathes with a certain realness and purity that is uniquely refreshing, deeply entertaining, and immediately engaging. Her message come from within. Her delivery is ageless and timeless. She practices what she preaches, exuding a fearless expression of love. What she is leading is truly a revolution - and what she has created is a living theater of the heart.

The Smile Revolution with Princess Wow (New York)

Princess WOW...aka Mindy Fradkin...is an original whose brand of positivity is what the world needs now..and always. I look forward to tuning in every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to take a break from my stressful, daily routine to get a boost of good energy from her colorful, upbeat and encouraging view on life. It's obvious Mindy puts a lot of thought into the quotes and music she shares, as well as always making sure she is always stylish and whimsical. I love her dance parties and going into her closet, and I always find that the 15-20 minutes I spend with Mindy gives me a new attitude. I am better able to face the rest of my day with a smile! I can only hope Mindy's message of hope and love, and the impact of sharing a genuine smile, will resonate long beyond COVID. She is truly one of the silver linings of this pandemic.

The Smile Revolution with Princess Wow (New York)

Mindy Fradkin is the heroine of a one-woman show that brings levity to my soul whenever I tune in. Fradkin coined the phrase Ageless Wonders, and this appeals to me. I’m 54, but my husband is 14 years older. We want to take a big bite out of life. We are inspiration seekers. We found her show in the midst of the pandemic, and she always comes armed with quotes, and chats as if we are together. I enjoy her uplifting songs such as a Smile Revolution song she penned with her “Wasband” Roland Moussaa. Mindy is known as Princess Wow, as she dresses the part in special colorful regalia. She has hats that are her own creations. She is funny, serious, and a bright part of our day. I love Mindy! Her show is a sweet gift.

Today Mindy Fradkin, known as Princess Wow, gave us another wonderful boost to our current routines with love and bringing smiles to our faces. We are so grateful for her amazing skills in music, comedy, sharing deep insights and ideas, her very own hat designs, dancing, and an endless sense of colorful play! And today’s 41st presentation since March 15th is no exception, even if it was shorter, more spontaneous, and outside! Her shows are rich edutainment, touching us in very real ways - positive and uplifting. A gifted comedienne and performer, you’ll want to become an active participant in her “smile revolution.” Thank you, Mindy!

I CAN'T INDIAN GOOD (Hollywood)

His is a stunning one man show that entertains, titillates, and disturbs us all in one...

His grasp of nuances, accents, and physical comedy impeccably capture a visual image of each character he portrays. Brandon is quite the master storyteller, vividly revealing the persona of each influence on his life journey.

Impro Theatre's "Jane Austen UnScripted" (Hollywood)

Sampling “Jane Austen Unscripted” was uncannily similar to reading one of her books. Since she primarily set her novels in drawing rooms, it was particularly amusing to watch the haughty Harriett (Kari Coleman) trying to incorporate the word “whoop” into a prim Austen scenario. It was also fun to see how well everyone worked with the identical fireplace that appeared no matter where in the mansion the action seemed to be placed.

Impro Theatre's "Chekhov UnScripted"

Recently, I binged on Impro Theatre Company’s live, spontaneous offerings, including “Chekhov Unscripted.” The suggestion, “Broken Stables and a Lake,” brought to mind Chekhov’s Cherry Orchard. The ongoing sources of humor were found in the actors – Kari Coleman, Kelly Holden Bashar, Dan O’Connor, Mike Rock and Paul Rogan – falling effortlessly into the stereotypes familiar to any Chekhovian aficionado.The technical improvisors (Arlo Sanders and Cory Wyszynksi) were the unsung heroes. Not only do they control the ever-changing backgrounds, but they oversaw the improvised editing on the fly and sometimes, their switching back and forth contributed to the laughter.

Couch Readings (International)

I participated in this live reading series as a playwright and greatly enjoyed the experience. Ryan handled everything very professionally, the actors were great, the platform ran smoothly, and the audience asked great questions. I found it very useful to hear my play read aloud and to be able to discuss it.

Nathan C. Jones: A Love Story? (Hollywood)

On the surface, NATHAN C. JONES appears to be an unassuming little show about a young man and his new romance. But, as the audience is drawn further and further into the story, it becomes clear that the writers are exploring much deeper questions about loneliness, the desire to be loved, and what happens when reality sits on shifting sands.

Couch Readings (International)

I took part in Couch Readings as a playwright and I was thrilled with the results. The session was really well organised, Ryan cast some fantastic actors to read my play, and the Q&A with Ryan and the actors at the end was really useful for me developing the piece in the future. My family and friends also loved watching.

Couch Readings (International)

Great platform for writers and actors to collaborate the early stages of a script. Helped me a lot to review my script from a different perspective. Loved opening a discussion to the actors to get their opinions on the characters. Listening to your script read out loud by others helps to find the voices to your characters.
