"Run. Do not Walk. Or stop by the pub. Just go!! You will be laughing and then, of course, crying as John Fico deftly takes your soul in his competent hands and skillfully leads you through his portrayal of four distinct characters and their struggles through love and Alzheimers. Confession: I was not scheduled to see this show. I was supposed to meet friends for another one across the street, and just picked this one out of the Fringe guide at random, so I had no idea what I was walking into. And to add to that, I had just experienced the huge stress of driving for an hour and a half only to be late, and the disappointment of not getting to see my friends. So, when I was blessed with this wonderful piece and pulled into Monica Bauer’s world, I was beyond grateful."

"I was one of three people in the audience when I saw this and that is a goddamn crime because this show is stellar. John Fico is an incredibly compelling performer and the specificity he brings to each character is spellbinding. Every one feels fully realized and the whole show could have consisted of any one of them and I still would have had a blast. The softness and vulnerability in these characters, paired with wit and charm... you'll fall in love with them the way they fall in love with each other. This show made me feel emotions. Quite a lot of them. When Alzheimer's is a central part of the story, it'll do that to you. The writing was done by a deft hand, jumping from sharp sass to revealing character moments to song and dance numbers to poetic observations. Looking back on it, this piece traverses a lot of ground, but it feels so cohesive and effortless - even though it's also evident that all involved put a lot of care into all aspects of the storytelling. I wish there was more of it! It was great that the show ended where it did, but it could well have gone on another fifteen minutes or so and probably would have left me a sobbing blubbering wreck for the rest of the day."

"Made For Each Other forces us to examine a very human quandary: Is truth ever love’s crucifixion or are lies its resurrection? In choosing their answer to that question Bauer and Fico offer audiences a joyous celebration of the salvation the human heart may both earn and deserve."

"As in any good play you’ll see during the Hollywood Fringe Festival, each character has his or her own unique personality and mannerism, which Fico captures beautifully, never letting one character’s traits blend into another’s. Each character also has his or her own secrets. - RECOMMENDED"
