Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Relevant, Quirky

See it if you enjoy a light hearted romp of new theater, quirky subjects, and a few tender moments.

Ambitious, Clever, Indulgent, Refreshing, Thought-provoking

See it if You enjoy a mix of great, good, and bad with your theater. Not all of them were good, but all had SOMETHING you could grasp onto.

Don't see it if If you don't like vignette theater. This was a mix of a lot of short one act plays. Not necessarily worth the trek in the rain, but not bad.

Theatre is Easy
May 13th, 2017

“With expectations of talented actors and clever writing, it did not disappoint…What I found most wonderful throughout the evening was that, despite the varying interpretations and the extremely diverse writing and directing styles, the production as a whole feels like a cohesive unit...The ideas and talent range here, but all in all, the night is a home run...Corny humor, profound ideas, beautiful singing, hysterical plots, and quality direction all contribute to an oasis of happiness."

“How spurned lovers rebound from ill-fated affairs was the theme this year, one handled deftly by some of the writers involved and used as a loose pretext, or downright ignored, by some others. It was hard to see any connection to the evening’s theme in the cryptic ‘Robert and Lucy’…'Antares Returning' is both improbable and clichéd…‘All is Bright’ concluded the series and offered the most nuanced material…It is funny, absurd, sorrowful and touching.”
