About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: Molly “Equality” Dykeman is back at FringeNYC and this time she's trapped in a Mexican restaurant with a waitress who won't shut up. Molly just wants nachos but what she gets has more layers than a bean dip.

Funny, Hilarious, Quirky, Raunchy, Great writing

See it if You like heartfelt, yet raunchy humor, great characters, laugh-out-loud moments.

Don't see it if You don't care for queer characters. Don't like when people swear onstage.

Don't see it if You are looking for something "safe"

Theatermania
August 17th, 2016

"It is easy to imagine these characters being very funny with better material...Lame jokes somewhat obscure the fact that Alton and Warnock are actually very talented comedians. Their commitment to character and comic timing is unquestionable. But that is not enough to sustain an hour-long show: By the end, 'Microwaved Burrito' feels like a drawn-out sketch from one of 'Saturday Night Live's' off years. No amount of reheating will assuage the bland taste it leaves in your mouth."

"Despite the heaping portions of lesbian jokes and drag ferocity, it does cross into deeper territory...Although both characters identify as women, neither plays the all-too-common submissive and smiling straight-white-cisgender ingenue. But if neither fits the old-fashioned theatrical female mold, both have many reasons to be smiling women just the same. As a writing/acting comedy duo, Alton and Warnock are polished and ready to crack you up, and potentially inspire you as well."

CurtainUp

"Blasts through its subject matter without any preciousness...The two are both magnetic, comically gifted performers...'Burrito' isn't neat and tidy, and it's undoubtedly an acquired taste. It hits the same beats relentlessly, and by the end of the hour starts to feel a bit depleted. But here that feels slightly less like an oversight and more like an aesthetic, and in one of the more fiercely spirited shows you might encountered at this year's Fringe, it proves unexpectedly endearing."

"Andrea Alton and Allen Warnock have created an engaging story for Molly and her new friend Angie. Their characters are richly layered and carefully developed. Each has interesting conflicts that drive interesting plots that engage their audience to reflect upon the comedic elements in the vicissitudes of the human experience...Their timing is perfect, their humor endearing and freshly contemporary."

Theater In The Now
August 23rd, 2016

"A hilarious new comedy…What makes this play special is the writing. It starts off crazy but there is immense heart built right in. And it flows out naturally. Molly and Angie are endearing characters with a whole lot of depth. But it's Alton and Warnock’s remarkable ability to infuse important talking points seamlessly into a comedy that resonates...These characters may appear big but their desires are pure. Being able to balance the two in the writing is a mark of comedic genius."

For a previous production

"The snappy direction by Molly Marinik guides us through a quirky journey where the rhythm of the whole performance is as strange as the poems shared...Alton completely commits to every moment allowing the audience to watch a woman completely expose herself...There is true sense of melancholy, regret, and anger. The lines between comedy and tragedy, lucid and high, bizarre and normal are blurred, just as all other lines Molly approaches."
