About the show

This world premiere comedy is a two-person modern love story about a young woman who finds her relationship with her screenwriter boyfriend challenged when he experiences sudden career success. More…

"Fusion" tells the story of Alison, an accomplished chef, and Daniel, an aspiring screenwriter moonlighting as a movie critic. They’ve been dating about six months when Daniel drops a bombshell on her: he’s been offered a dream job writing movies in Hollywood and must leave in one week! When she can’t bring herself to move there with him, they go their separate ways. Three years later, he’s back – hoping she’ll change her mind. But his strategy of showing up drunk in the middle of the night, his newly won Oscar in tow – might not be the best.

Fluffy, Good acting, Funny (sometimes), Slow, Cliched

See it if you would be happy with a fluffy show that is pleasant but unmemorable and provides some laughs along the way.

Absorbing, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Refreshing

See it if You like to see shows about relationships.

Don't see it if You are looking to see a musical.

Great writing, Disappointing, Insipid, Slow

See it if you want to see a show about a relationship between two people. The first act is good, the second act falls flat.

Don't see it if you want to see a show that is dynamic. The second act is like a glass of warm milk...Not much energy.

Cliched, Slow, Fluffy, Disappointing, Overrated

Great acting, Great writing, Clever, Romantic, Relevant

See it if Everything so naturally comes together, as if we are living the story as the characters. It feels excessive to think... What's not to like?

Don't see it if You hate romantic stories... It's hard to choose between true love and dream job, no guarantee either way. 2nd chance doesn't come often!

During previews
Great acting, Romantic, Cliched

See it if You enjoy intimate relationship based shows.

Don't see it if You want to see something thought provoking, edgy or with something new to say.

“While it has some effective elements, 'Fusion' seems to make a caricature of relationships rather than delving deep to explore intimacy between two people...What 'Fusion' attempts may seem simple, but the simplicity demands perfection and this piece is lacking. Conversations go on too long or ne...
