Matt Ritchey
"To call an evening “charming” can come off as false praise, but it fits very well with Feeling Lucky. The performances are all good, the direction by Yuval Shrem is crisp and funny, and the writing by Fife gives us real stakes and heightened emotions and makes us care about characters in very short order – one walks out of the theater feeling that their own romantic problems (or successes!) are not only understood, but are Universal. And that’s not only heartening, but hopeful."

"There’s no doubt that Fife can construct a scene: the dialogue is succinct, the conflicts are huge and the structure of each scene is solid. The text is written to appeal to a younger audience. It would be interesting to see what would happen if the female-identifying characters moved away from sexual prowess as their first line of defense/communication. Direction by Yuval Shrem is concise. He keeps the pace tight which drives the work and serves the comedy well."

"In professional theater for over 40 years as an actor, playwright, featured writer, director, producer, and literary manager, Fife has probably seen it all – and then some. His idiosyncratic view of love, loss, and everything in between will delight audiences looking for a well-written fringe view of the world. And let’s not forget the actors who bring Fife’s vignettes alive with humor and warmth... Each offers an amusing, poignant, lonely, and lost individual trying his best to make it in the dating game. Artfully directed by Yuval Shrem, who knows his way around the stage, the cast breathe life into each of their characters."
