Brilliant Traces

Burnt shoes, junk food and oil rigs-what do these have in common? A comedy-tragedy with existential concerns. Poirer and Linder are brilliant as the couple with secrets and emotional challenges. A great script by Cindy Lou Johnson and well directed by Miriam Monasch. Go See.

The Most Massive Woman Wins (2009)

A must-see!

The Most Massive Woman Wins

This show is probably my favorite Fringe show I have seen this year. It was powerful and emotional, while also being humorous. The acting was phenomenal; each woman injected realism and charisma into the characters they played. Every woman can identify with the struggle to be comfortable with her own body while being bombarded with negative messages from the media, from their significant others, and even from their own parents. There was one character in particular with whom I strongly identified, but all four of the characters were realistic portrayals of American women. I highly recommend this show!

Motherhood Out Loud

I appreciated the way in which this production was able to take such a serious subject and balance that seriousness with humor. Particularly apt at this was actor Stacey Poirier, whose comedic timing and physical presence had a way of driving humor within her scenes. The entire cast was exemplary, and Poirier stood out.

The Most Massive Woman Wins 2009

this show was so worth it! i just sat there wanting to laugh and cry because all of it was so true and terrible at the same time. it sounded like they were writing about my life! life of all women. it was really powerful that they were so beautiful but yet dealt with the same issues i do. that says so much about our society and womens' issues. a great glimpse of the life of a woman for men to see too!

The Most Massive Woman Wins 2009

It is easy for me to get seduced by all the funny, funny and funny that Fringe has to offer. It's great to be reminded occasionally that Fringe also offers some damn outstanding straight-up theatre. Not that this show didn't have its funny moments, it did, but went much further and much deeper than 90% of the other work at Fringe. Really terrific; definitely among the top 3 shows of the festival for me. Congratulations to the actors and crew of MMWW and also to Theatre Unbound -- I was familiar with the company but had never made it to a production before; now I can't wait to see what happens next.
