Unfocused, Thought-provoking, Strong acting, Teeny-tiny theater, Clever

See it if you like intense character studies, done w/humor (some scatalogical). W ltd props, Damiano embodies 4 men w/diff perspectives on Amer life.

Don't see it if you want high productn values. Or dislike tiny venues. Or want a longer show (60 mins). Or don't enjoy solo shows wh are often talky. Read more

Great acting, Interesting, Absorbing, Without focus, Detached

See it if You think you’d like to see four short monologues about timely, topical political issues.

Don't see it if You want to see a show that has any sort of arc or plot. 4 short monologues that, while very well done, lead nowhere, and make no point. Read more

April 21st, 2018
For a previous production

"Probably one of the best one-person shows that I’ve ever reviewed, both in terms of its performance and its concept...I was skeptical...whether Mr. Damiano could actually pull off a performance of each of these diverse characters...Yet I was easily proven wrong. The play does a very fine job at exploring the division in modern American society on a very human level, and Damiano seamlessly pulls off each of the four individual performances of the characters in his show."

For a previous production

"A window into the lives of four very different Americans, each with his own ideas about tranquility and prosperity...While the characters are often humorous, the perspectives they represent are all too real...Supporting these lofty themes is a truly impressive performance on the part of Mr. Damiano. Armed with a writer’s ear for capturing dialogue and an actor’s flair for delivery, he makes his characters impressively real and uniquely vibrant."
