See it if You want to see a really well written show with a lot of layers to it all play very true and will keep you thinking long past final curtain.
Don't see it if You don't want a show that reflects real life and it's many inconsistencies. This is not a comedy but it is very entertaining. Great show.
See it if Stroke-ridden professor inspires competition for his affection among family and colleagues. The threads add up effectively.
Don't see it if You don't like dark comedy, openly gay/trans characters, some indulgent over-the-top scenes. Bare bones production in small theater.
“Ambitious yet overstuffed to the point of unwieldiness. Still, the production was packed with young talent, most notably Jules Forsberg-Lary as Peg…and the charismatic Jonathan Iglesias as Victor…In the risk-taking venture that is summer festival-going, encountering talent you want to see more of is a worthy payoff.”
“Although ‘False Stars’ does try for some noir effects, including the sounds of weather and a 1960's Bette Davis film running on the tiny portable TV set in the corner of the set, this was more of a distraction and misdirection. The play's strengths are in the revealing lines given life by a fine cast of young actors.”
"Fast-paced, heartfelt and precise, the writing, acting and direction of this piece come together to form a riveting production...The high-caliber acting of all the actors made this production superb. There was clear dedication in the development of each of these characters...The direction of Reed, coupled with the work of movement consultant Sheppard, created brilliantly staged blocking, where there could be three story lines playing out on stage at once."
