The play achieves a deep level of sensitivity and surprising humor as those left behind search for answers and summarize the totality of their loss.

This is an incredibly well constructed piece of theatre that was developed with an incredible amount of dedication from all parties involved. People asked me if it was a comedy and I always replied with, "you'll laugh, but it's not a comedy", and that is my favorite type of show. The writing is brilliant and really hits close to home, which added to the emotional impact of the story. Easily the best piece of theatre I've seen this year.

I was fortunate to catch the last show. The writing and story moved in and out in a fluid way. Always a step ahead. Which I appreciate. The direction and acting was also super. Courageous and honest. Bravo.

Pagliaccis is a story that could only have been written by someone with a deep understanding of the burden of the need for companionship, the emptiness and doubt of loss, and how close everyone is to giving loved ones what they need to continue on in life. Harim Sanchez had the audience feeling a sort of pitiful comfort within all the characters throughout the play, all while having them doubt and even fear themselves. Eric White dared us to read between the lines of what we believed to be a tale of a simple, tragic affair with depression. We find ourselves hidden in parts of Zane's life which our closest friends wouldn't even let us see. The audience is forced to relate to each of the characters, no matter how gruesome it makes them feel. And with the final act leaving everyone both in tears and terrified, it leaves you with more questions than you had at the start.

This was my first time seeing a play at the Hollywood Fringe Festival but it certainly won't be my last. Suicide is never an easy subject to discuss but Pagliaccis pulls it off, threading it through dark humor and an emotional roller coaster. Completely engaging,- all thanks to Harim Sanchez's strong script dialogue and Eric White's direction- the play makes you think, laugh and cry all at the same time while also helping you remember what's really important in life.

Wonderful, one of the most intimate Fringe shows I have ever seen. A highly dynamic cast, incredibly story driven, the character's conflicts are relatable and hit close to home. Pagliaccis avoids the trap of shock value, inviting us to explore our insecurities and inner demons with humor and open eyes.

Amazing show. A very talented young writer brings up some important concepts about what is important in ones life. A brilliant mix of comedy and tragedy that is brilliantly acted in all aspects.
