New Kid on the Block

An original look into the millennial mindset of social influencers and real-world issues. Kid on the block explores a young man who wants to see what it would be like to live on the street for a week and he live streams his whole experience; as he encounters challenges his viewership rises. This half hour Comedy felt like a crazy episode of a sitcom with all your favorite characters! The actors were amazing and funny and lovable. I especially enjoyed the diverse color-blind casting. I left with a lot of questions which I feel is one of the intentions with this show, ask questions. How is this homeless epidemic happening to all of these individuals? What can we do to help? Let us not make assumptions about everyone on the street, they each have their own story. These thoughts and questions breed positive change. Go check it out!

Paris Syndrome

Delightfully funny, charming and with the right amount of cheese! An hour of giggles and laughter! Ross Buran's was witty and charming to watch, and the supporting ensemble added wonderful comedic bits. It was easy to watch and enjoy! I especially loved the cinematic musical interludes! The narrative was easy to follow along and switched between a presentation narration to heartfelt scenes always ending with a great button.

Sex and the Musical

Spot on parody of “Sex and the City” with power house songs! This is Laura Wiley's best work! A fun, sexy, laugh out loud night for all genders, whether you have seen the source material or not! It left me wanting more! Wiley once again displays her talent for casting truly believable character-look-alikes who can belt her songs and entertain an audience! Sherry Berg, coming off her slayer role as Sarah Michelle Gellar aka. Buffy in Wiley's “Buffy Kills Edward” transformed into another 3 name Sarah as an uncanny sassy Carrie Bradshaw! Alli Miller is a brilliant Samantha and crowd pleaser! Her and Amanda Hootman's (Charlotte) ease with improv and a crowd covered any preview hiccups and elevated the show. Emily Craig rounded out the perfect girl group with the straight (or not so straight wom)man, Miranda! The men were also a delight to watch and a great addition to the clear concise one-hour story! In addition to the songs, the choreography by Alli Miller and Cory Robinson makes the small stage feel like the Ahmanson Theatre! I could see this adding another 30 mins and going to New York!

Earhart: More Than a F*cking Mystery

Great songs, great performances, clever concept! Very enjoyable and a great Fringe length! The talent in this cast was awesome! The women who played Amelia and Ms. Earhart were charming and wonderful! With an added 30 minutes, this all female musical should be off Broadway! Manny Hagopian's songs were catchy and wonderfully crafted musical theatre numbers. I wanted to buy a CD! (Which you can, I just didn't have cash!) Great venue for this show as well! I would have liked a program! Or at least the online Fringe page to have the full cast listed with photos and roles.

Maron Doll

Artfully written and and performed! A beautiful and touching story live on stage of a broken relationship between a mother and daughter. This piece has longevity! All aspects of the show, writing, direction, set/costume/sound design, and performances were compelling and artfully executed. The performances by the leads Lara Helena and Shelly West were captivating, I forgot I was in a theatre, except for the sound of sniffles as the final black out enveloped the stage. Beautiful piece invoking human empathy!
