Paul Myrvold - Theatre Notes

Open Fist is excellent in producing a show of what they call pop-ups, that is, really short plays that are serious, comic, and deeply thought provoking. The sketches express the currents of social and political reality.

Open Fist Theatre Company's approach to opening up a polarized America to the reality of our current governmental climate gets right what a lot of other productions have gotten wrong: they keep the topics from feeling forced and the sentimental moments from feeling cheap. The hope is palpable and the communal intolerance relatable. - RECOMMENDED
