Profound, Clever, Absorbing

See it if The lead/writer suffers from cerebral palsy, and brilliantly presents an enlightening, 4th-wall-breaking insight into his life, and mind

Don't see it if You are not interested in Off, Off Broadway and aren't willing to take a chance to expand your perspective on theatre.

Theatre is Easy
March 13th, 2019

“Mike is a man who has many identities...Linnehan makes sure to begin by telling us that he is different...This production, previously staged by advocates for inclusive theater including Nicu's Spoon, is an enlightening chance to hear one man with CP speaking his truth. Director/Sound Designer Christopher Scott brings much laughter and music to this play. Bravo to all who helped construct the narrative within the narrative wherein it feels safe to be real.”

"Original, heartfelt and engrossing confessional...The jokes are frequent and effectively draw us in closer to his quirky and playful personality. When he turns serious and peels back yet another layer for us to examine, the drama is vivid and quietly devastating...What makes this riveting theater is the performance itself. He takes his audience by the hand and does not lecture....The effect achieved allows us to see a real, imperfect and articulate human being sharing a complicated journey."
