Review On SkyPilot One Act Festival 2018


Ellen Dostal - Musicals in LA

Registered Critic


Tom Misuraca's CLASS REUNION is a class reunion with a previously unexplored twist. Five friends reminisce about their younger days and current accomplishments when they meet at their class reunion. The drama and dynamics of who they were has not changed since they last saw each other, but for one important detail. Director Margaret Starbuck manages to keep Misuraca's story surprise intact until the powerful reveal. It's a game-changer in the way we think about school shootings and Misuraca hits his theatrical target tacitly but with great potency.
