Broken Bone Bathtub
East Village

"If it sounds voyeuristic, or gimmicky, it’s O’Loughlin’s approachability as a storyteller and a listener that makes 'Broken Bone Bathtub' both compelling theater and a cathartic group experience...That dynamic of openness and sharing causes every performance to be unique...The ending isn’t exactly a twist, but it is emotionally intimate; sometimes the things we ask of our friends aren’t necessarily what we need, they’re what will keep us connected to them."

"A 75-minute science demonstration that doesn’t waste a lyric in exploring natural phenomena...It’s advised that you grab a coffee before the show, as the lyrics are mostly penned by scientists and favor facts over lyricism...Yet Chinn imbues everything with a Tom Lehrer-like madcap humor and charm...'Science Fair' is more about inspiring curiosity through whatever medium one has available, which for Chinn means the unrivaled drama of opera."
