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!

24-Hour Play Project 2003

The thrill, the exhilaration, and the sense of pride and accomplishment more than make up for the fear, the doubts, and the worry. Not to mention the lack of sleep.

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.

...this forceful production illuminates the misogyny and injustice that compel [Medea] to vengeance.
