Bruno Oliver as Ester

LA Times:

"a raw and revealing glimpse into the actor's existential dilemma...

careens, amusingly, between vaudevillian slapstick and metaphysical absurdism...

could have come straight out of an old Laurel and Hardy one-reeler...

an acid-etched valentine to... those intrepid aspirants who forgo an easy path for the strenuous and oft thankless service of art"

Julie Marchiano as Laura

Travis Michael Holder:

"With tongue firmly planted in cheek, Hanson gets it, his hilarious little gem of a play perfectly capturing any artist's age-old dilemma—and so do director Jacob Sidney and his exemplary pair of veteran physical comedians

a too-brief turn from Julie Marchiano as the boys' resident Mae Busch... particularly watchable looking on in amazement...

should be recognized as one of the best and most memorable things to play here in El Lay this year"
Joe Hernandez-Kolski as Val

Stage Raw:

"Full of stellar physical humor, entertaining wisecracking riffs, and philosophical discussions...

Physicality is where the play shines...  Steady overall direction (Jacob Sidney), particularly in fighting (Edgar Landa)...

Hernandez-Kolski is spot-on as the wide-eyed innocent... Oliver fully embodies the know-it-all doofus whose rationale stirs straight into insanity. Julie Marchiano... is the ultimate foil...

The SoCal Review:

"Prior to viewing the show, I got a drink with a friend at The Broadwater Plunge next door.

Oliver and Hernandez-Kolski were wonderfully cast... Julie Marchiano played Laura the assistant stage manager so convincingly, with no-nonsense...

a fun, interesting evening at the theatre that gets to the heart of what it means to wake up every morning and need to create"

I've got a slightly new schedule at The Broadwater Plunge!  Catch me Wed-Thu-Fri and SUNday nights...

I hope you're staying warm!
