Tigers Be Still -- a ferociously funny play from New Girl writer Kim Rosenstock -- centers around the infinitely-trying-to-be-optimistic Sherry Wickman, who has earned her art therapy degree and promptly moved back in with her family. Matters take a turn for the better once she gets hired as a substitute art teacher. Now if only her mother would stop hiding upstairs, her sister would stop watching Top Gun from the couch, her petulant patient would do one of his assignments, her boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be just perfect.

"“Tigers Be Still,” now playing at Chance Theater in Anaheim through June 2nd, is a gamesome play considered to be a dark comedy, but ironically also manages to be charming, optimistic, and downright funny. This show has the Highest Recommendation!"

"These are vulnerable materials, but pliant and, as fabricated in this play, resourceful. Just as all the characters in “Tigers Be Still” turn out to be."

"“Tigers Be Still” offers a new and articulate voice in the realm of offbeat theater and Rosenstock’s imaginative comedy receives a terrific production with all four actors in fine form at the Chance."

"Kim Rosenstock's “Tigers Be Still” (in its regional premiere at the Chance through June 2) seems like a garden variety comedy at the outset, but not for long; within minutes it's clear the audience is in for a wild ride. The humor is more than a little outrageous at times but there's a dark side to it as well. All told it's a fast-moving 90 minutes that proves highly satisfying."

"It's taken nearly ten years for Tigers Be Still (a New York Times Top Ten Play of 2010) to make it from off-Broadway to beautiful downtown Anaheim Hills, but its regional premiere proves well worth the wait. Expect to exit the Chance uplifted, and with the widest of smiles on your face."
