REVIEWS

"An incredible 55-minute show that held my interest every minute. These eight short vignettes, with four actors playing various roles, were real slice of life and so fascinating...I love good writing as much as I love good songwriting, so it was double my pleasure this time out. This is not quite a 'family show' so parents be advised. But it is a comic evening with a twist - there are truly thoughtful insights interspersed with the clever, humorous dialog. Truly, not to be missed!" - Stu Hamsta's Cabaret Hotline
