Delightful, smart treatment of Women's issues, a couple not usually openly discussed. The material was well written, well cast & very well-performed.

Excellent show all around! The script is funny and moving, very tight and witty with realistic and relatable characters. The cast is super talented and balanced; it’s a real pleasure to watch them work together. The show is well directed with a nice pace and run time. I loved the set pieces and the sound cues were spot on. Definitely grab some girl friends and see this show!

...it’s all so perfectly contained in the hour or so we spend getting to know these remarkable and disparate characters that, in the end, it feels like not nearly enough.

... These stories might be familiar, but it’s that which makes them relatable and very important to us all.

“Tales From The Powder Room” won the Encore Producers award this year and I can totally understand why…it’s brilliant!!

An exceptional well directed and written play with some of the most talented and diversified actors I have ever seen perform on the same stage. It kept me on my seat with every scene and wanting for more.
Davida Sal who played Georgia stood out from the rest of the cast on her performance as a transgender working in a very difficult corporate environment. Davida is an upcoming actor for Hollywood to take notice seriously.

Funny, poignant, and brilliant. I could watch this play 10 times. The players had an exhuberance that seems to have come from their love of the material. Many surprising paths are followed, including a very surprising role for Davida Sal, which she played empathically. I wish the play was still on; hope it will find a home for more performances.

I enjoyed this play so much! The writing, direction, and acting were all top-notch, and I was astonished at how with so few props these actresses transported an entire audience into another place, with seemingly no effort at all. I felt every triumph, conflict, loss, and hope as these actresses brought their characters to life with grace and total humanity. Davida Sal and Lara Helena were particularly outstanding, and I look forward to seeing this entire cast succeed in many more roles. Very well done!

What starts out as a simple glance into a corporate office's lady's room becomes a parade of vulnerability and Dorothy Parker-esque escapades into what it means to be a woman in the year 2019, when drama happens between the hours of 9 to 5...

I very much enjoyed the whole production, very well written, directed and all the actresses were outstanding. I cried and I laughed. Davida Sal's portray of Georgia had so much humanity and depth. What could have been outrage from her character at Kendra, greatly portrayed by Lara Helena, hostility was instead handled with calm, almost loving energy to try to convince her of her spirits goodness, no matter what a person chooses to do with their own body. Well done Robyn Migel, looking forward to the Whitefire Theater Run.

A thoroughly enjoyable play that was well written and wonderfully acted. I especially liked the premise of the entire play taking place inside a woman's bathroom. The actresses acted as though towards a mirror that was the audience. This accentuated the wonderfully raw emotions as they, and we, were hyper aware of their external and internal dialogues. Some potent circumstances and interactions were powerfully acted. Shout outs go to the director and all the actresses, especially Lara Helena as Kendra and Davida Sal as Georgia.

...Both actors display a fearless intensity, and the scene leads to an unexpected and satisfying conclusion. Excellent performances highlight how attractive this play may prove to be for women actors of any age looking for a spotlight to shine in.

Also playing on The Complex Hollywood’s boards right across the hall from the Ruby in The Dorie Theatre was Tales From the Powder Room by Robyn Migel, which won First Place for the Better Lemons Audience Choice Awards and has been extended. This play’s entire action is set in a workplace powder room, a euphemism for the ladies room, thus all of the characters and the eight thesps are females. In this woman-oriented hour-or-so play, the dramatis personae go to the bathroom in a series of six insightful vignettes.

Wow, I can't say enough about this amazing concept for a play. I loved being on the other side of the looking glass and was vicariously transported into the worlds of these 6 acts. I can't necessarily pick a favorite because each had it's own powerful message, however the act that included DaVida carried the most important message that I could personally relate to. I hope Tales will grow and additional "tales" will be added into the mix. I am ready for the sequel, so loved it!

I’m so glad I had the opportunity to come see Tales From the Powder Room. Not only did the stories themselves touch on some of the important topics of today but the characters were all portrayed with great sensitivity, strength and a touch of humor. Davida Sal and Lara Helena in particular showed great immersion and credibility in their roles and I left the theatre feeling almost as if I had been a part of a real life event instead of a theatrical performance.

Tales from the Powder Room gave us a bird’s eye view of the triumphs, trials and tribulations of 9 woman navigating their personal and professional lives. The audience was in the restroom on the floor of a corporation, where we were on the other side of the mirror. We were privy to woman speaking to themselves and one another as they navigated the vicissitudes of life. Of the five vignettes, one stood out. The scene with Georgia (played by DaVida Sal) and Kendra (played by Lara Helena) was a passionate and biting exchange over the tension between religious dogma and the right to freely express one’s sexuality.

WHAT A DELIGHTFUL SHOW! SO MANY TALENTED WOMEN ACTING IN THIS PLAY, WITH SO MANY IMPORTANT MESSAGES ROLLED INTO ONE, IT'S HARD TO CHOOSE A FAVORITE. EVERY VIGNETTE WAS ENTERTAINING, WHILE GIVING A GLIMPSE INTO THE DAILY STRUGGLES OF WOMEN, THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS OF THE POWDER ROOM. I WAS PARTICULARLY BLOWN AWAY BY MEGAN OLIVIA'S PERFORMANCE -INJECTING COMEDY INTO WHAT COULD BE OTHERWISE SEEN AS A TRAGEDY. FANTASTIC COMEDIC ACTING!! SHE HAD THE ENTIRE AUDIENCE UPROARIOUSLY LAUGHING! GO SEE THE PLAY AND SUPPORT WOMEN ACTORS, DIRECTORS, WRITERS AND THEIR STORIES.

Tales from the Powder Room is a periscope view into a corporate women's restroom. On one hand a sanctuary, but on another, violated by corporate posturing at times. Well performed, overall, with two standouts: Megan Olivia, with her over the top performance. Davida Sal, with her extremely touching and deft handling of her emotions in what could be a very tense situation. The rest of the cast were very good, but had less to work with in their scenes. I highly recommend this play!

Amazing CAST such a jaw dropping performance by these wonderfully talented ladies! Stand out was Davida in her emotional dialogue, I felt like I was there experiencing every emotion with and through her! Spectacular!

With spare but effective staging placing the audience on the other side of the mirror in the powder room, the five vignettes we powerfully written in a corporate setting which revealed a lot more than office politics tackling deep issues. A mother dealing with an insensitive school bureaucracy in defense of her child, a stunning transsexual confronting the bigotry of the religious right and the heart wrenching defiance of a woman without friends facing a death sentence from cancer alone were moving and memorable. The only less convincing tale from the powder room was about the angst over a pregnancy test which was over-acted but again like all the vignettes beautifully written and cleverly staged. Bravo to all.

Tales from the powder room was truly a wonderful show. This is not a show about male bashing. This is truly a well written shows that gives a few examples of what all types of women from different backgrounds think and go thru in a day in the life at the office. There are truly thoughtful moments in the show that presets topical ideas and as the audience member you may struggle with how you would respond. Good...Bad... We are all human!

This was an incredible performance by some very talented women! Davida Sel performance was incredible and heart felt! She really captured my heart and I felt her emotions! The Dragon Lady was also very good! I teared up when she performed! All the women were really seasoned actors with convincing stories and amazing energy!!! The director and writer really knew how to touch peoples hearts! The audience was laughing and getting emotional! Quite profound!

I had the chance to see this show prior to opening during a dress/tech and then i saw it again 1 week later on opening day, and WOW what a HUGE improvement... all the Actors stepped into their big shoes and really brought their A Game! The writing made even more sense as all the feeling and essence of the characters where just oozing from the stage. I thought all the scenes where pertinent to what women in todays world live, even I am not a women, I can feel the realism in these little vignettes and felt compassion as well relating to them as real life people and not a characters in a story. The chemistry was REAL! My favorite characters where the Dragon Lady (Sandi Milne) who I felt so deeply raw and realistic and Kendra (Lara Helena) a powerful villain I wanted to hate, but she was just so good! I HIGHLY recommend to go see this show and get a taste of great acting, great stories and an all around entertaining 45minutes!

I just watched the show yesterday and I am usually not one to post a review on things, but this play deserves to be mentioned, so if you haven't seen it yet, you should! It's a beautiful insight into the mind of several women and their ways of dealing with issues/feelings/experiences, that every woman can somewhere identify with. Though it is not a play for women only, I think it's quite interesting for men as well. The actors played their roles with conviction and raw emotions that made us laugh and sometimes cry (me and my sister, anyway :)) and I was particularly drawn in by the scene with the characters Georgia (DaVida Sal) and Kendra (Lara Helena), because Georgia's world was unfamiliar to me , so I was curiously watching, feeling sadness and anger and then the end....oh so satisfying....it just has to be mentioned. Thank you, Robyn Migel for writing this script and sharing it with us! ♥
Well done, ladies!

I loved this show! The premise is genius. I think everyone has had that experience at work of going to the oasis in the bathroom away from everyone, and the noise and the prying eyes. Whether to cry, talk yourself up, or talk in private, it’s a sacred space. This play has all of that. The actresses brought so much depth and vulnerability to those private moments that I almost felt I shouldn’t be watching. However I couldn’t take my eyes off of them.
The show really peels back the layers of the human experience and reminds you that you never really know what’s going on in someone’s life.

Awesome play by Robyn Migel! It has everything. Very well written, great dialogue! Very moving performances by the entire cast there was also a comedic scene by the hilarious Megan Olivia. A must see! Tear jerking scenes by Kelli Fish and Sandi Milne. You’ll  laugh, you’ll cry. Your emotions will fly along with the characters lighting up the stage! Shout out performances by Megan Olivia, Sandi Milne, Sarah Siadat and Kelli Fish. Just watch it, this show is a ride and everyone involved brought something special.

This show was amazing, and the director and producer should be highly commended.

Although all of the actresses were outstanding, with so much talent, one actress really stood out; Davida Sal.

Her presence on stage is huge, she knows how to really project, and bring life to her role.

Her subtle Spanish accent added a completely different dynamic to her role than I have ever seen before, and it sucked me in emotionally, and made me want to stand and cheer when the show was over.

She will most definitely be a talent to keep your eyes on, and look forward too in future stage productions.

First and foremost, great grounded acting. Believable stories from the workplace. You almost forget you’re at a show and feel a little odd being an onlooker into peoples vulnerable moments. But that’s what makes it so great. Taking you out of one reality and plopping you into another. It was well paced and didn’t drag, which some shows tend to do. It had some funny moments, but also many moments that moved and almost squeezed a tear out of this soul-less human.

Well done.

AMAZING!! Incredible Talent! MUST SEE!

This show had several theatrical vignettes, showing off the fantastic talents of these actresses with Non stop action, inter-action, suspense, intense drama, comedy, inter office politics, gender drama, and much more.

Our show was sold out, and for good reason. Every actress was professional, never missed a beat, worked with the crowd, with each other, they were prepared. The crowd showed their positive response with non stop clapping at the end of each vignette, and at the end of the show.

I traveled from Fresno California to see this, and I will be going to see them again if there any tickets available.

This show takes you through all the feels. The vignettes explored touch on so many issues in women's culture today. I teared up, I laughed, my heart grew three sizes that day. Hats off for representing underrepresented communities and for telling so MANY women's stories.

What a great show! A unique setup: Women employees go in and out of the company restroom (hence the name The Powder Room) giving us a glimpse of how they interact and what is going on in their lives. Plot-wise, there were enough surprises to make the whole thing go by in a flash, as we laughed, cried, coughed, and had our eyes opened. The entire cast was fantastic and really worked well together, with standout performances by Megan Olivia, Lara Helena, and the irresistible Davida Sal.

I absolutely LOVED this production! I related so well to the characters and I experienced every emotion possible throughout the show. I am definitely going to see it again and I've already sent three friends to the site to buy tickets. Cheers and hats off to the writer, director, and cast! Davida Sal in particular was an extremely powerful and moving actress. Her character is so memorable! Bravo!

Blown away by Robyn Migel's play yesterday! It is a must see, inspirational, especially in today's environment. Such an important message about the need for females to support each other rather than see and treat each other as rivals. There is plenty of success for everyone, and with the inequality of compensation where it is and the lingering sexism and ageism, the last thing we need to be doing is pulling each other down in any way. Hopefully, pieces like Robyn's insightful play will contribute to change. Acting was also outstanding by the entire ensemble. Megan Olivia, Sarah Siadat, and Sandi Milne were particularly memorable.

Tales from the powder room was great! It showed the very real struggles that women go through every single day and had such an important message that women need to encourage and build each other up instead always tearing each other down. There were very honest and vulnerable moments on stage that as a guy gave me a glimpse into a woman’s perspective and made me think about how I can be better man. The women in this play did such an amazing job. Go see it! The acting was so natural. I especially liked Kamri Lin and Burgandi Phoenix’s scene. The message of their scene was not to tear each other down to get ahead. That women need to stick together. Strength in numbers. Kamri Lin was so natural in her moments. You could see her taking in the information from the actress across from her like she was living it for the first time. She took her time and responded honestly and with purpose. Really looking forward to seeing her in future projects.

Wow, what a great show, wonderful message about being there for other women, it was powerful. Stories from what goes on when women go to the bathroom in the workplace. I was teary eyed for the touching  performance by Kelli Fish who plays Cheryl and laughing hysterically for the virtuoso performance by Megan Olivia  who plays Krystal. Robyn Migel is highly talented and watching her show was such a treat. All the women came together and gave such an amazing performance, great job also to Sandi Milne, Kamri Lin, Burgandi Phoenix, Lara Helena, Davida Sal, and Sarah Siadat. Go watch this show!

Her subtle Spanish accent added a completely different dynamic to her role than I have ever seen before, and it sucked me in emotionally, and made me want to stand and cheer when the show was over.

She will most definitely be a talent to keep your eyes on, and look forward too in future stage productions.

First and foremost, great grounded acting. Believable stories from the workplace. You almost forget you’re at a show and feel a little odd being an onlooker into peoples vulnerable moments. But that’s what makes it so great. Taking you out of one reality and plopping you into another. It was well paced and didn’t drag, which some shows tend to do. It had some funny moments, but also many moments that moved and almost squeezed a tear out of this soul-less human.

Well done.

AMAZING!! Incredible Talent! MUST SEE!

This show had several theatrical vignettes, showing off the fantastic talents of these actresses with Non stop action, inter-action, suspense, intense drama, comedy, inter office politics, gender drama, and much more.

Our show was sold out, and for good reason. Every actress was professional, never missed a beat, worked with the crowd, with each other, they were prepared. The crowd showed their positive response with non stop clapping at the end of each vignette, and at the end of the show.

I traveled from Fresno California to see this, and I will be going to see them again if there any tickets available.

This show takes you through all the feels. The vignettes explored touch on so many issues in women's culture today. I teared up, I laughed, my heart grew three sizes that day. Hats off for representing underrepresented communities and for telling so MANY women's stories.

What a great show! A unique setup: Women employees go in and out of the company restroom (hence the name The Powder Room) giving us a glimpse of how they interact and what is going on in their lives. Plot-wise, there were enough surprises to make the whole thing go by in a flash, as we laughed, cried, coughed, and had our eyes opened. The entire cast was fantastic and really worked well together, with standout performances by Megan Olivia, Lara Helena, and the irresistible Davida Sal.

I absolutely LOVED this production! I related so well to the characters and I experienced every emotion possible throughout the show. I am definitely going to see it again and I've already sent three friends to the site to buy tickets. Cheers and hats off to the writer, director, and cast! Davida Sal in particular was an extremely powerful and moving actress. Her character is so memorable! Bravo!

Blown away by Robyn Migel's play yesterday! It is a must see, inspirational, especially in today's environment. Such an important message about the need for females to support each other rather than see and treat each other as rivals. There is plenty of success for everyone, and with the inequality of compensation where it is and the lingering sexism and ageism, the last thing we need to be doing is pulling each other down in any way. Hopefully, pieces like Robyn's insightful play will contribute to change. Acting was also outstanding by the entire ensemble. Megan Olivia, Sarah Siadat, and Sandi Milne were particularly memorable.

Tales from the powder room was great! It showed the very real struggles that women go through every single day and had such an important message that women need to encourage and build each other up instead always tearing each other down. There were very honest and vulnerable moments on stage that as a guy gave me a glimpse into a woman’s perspective and made me think about how I can be better man. The women in this play did such an amazing job. Go see it! The acting was so natural. I especially liked Kamri Lin and Burgandi Phoenix’s scene. The message of their scene was not to tear each other down to get ahead. That women need to stick together. Strength in numbers. Kamri Lin was so natural in her moments. You could see her taking in the information from the actress across from her like she was living it for the first time. She took her time and responded honestly and with purpose. Really looking forward to seeing her in future projects.

Wow, what a great show, wonderful message about being there for other women, it was powerful. Stories from what goes on when women go to the bathroom in the workplace. I was teary eyed for the touching  performance by Kelli Fish who plays Cheryl and laughing hysterically for the virtuoso performance by Megan Olivia  who plays Krystal. Robyn Migel is highly talented and watching her show was such a treat. All the women came together and gave such an amazing performance, great job also to Sandi Milne, Kamri Lin, Burgandi Phoenix, Lara Helena, Davida Sal, and Sarah Siadat. Go watch this show!
