Refreshing, Ambitious

See it if wonderful concept. challenged and reinvented the intimate relationship b/w the performer and the sole audience member. sharp monologues.

Don't see it if the quality may vary among plays. no reason not to spare five minutes for this unique and affordable (free!) experience.

"Theater for One boils the live experience down to its essence: the relationship between performer and audience, face to face. The forced intimacy can be exhilarating, and it can be terrifying. At times, I wished I could avert my eyes, but looking away felt rude. No wonder people hide behind their phones nowadays: This communication business is tough."

"A rotating repertory of short plays is presented in the uncanny confines of what amounts to a kind of confessional...I saw two of them...Both plays were lovely and beautifully performed; seeing terrific actors up close is one huge appeal of the booth. There is also the appeal (and inescapability) of private storytelling...For me, that intimacy breaks down any resistance one might muster against the essential nature of theater...The experience leaves you feeling more human."
