Beautiful and exuberant!

Bits and Pieces

...a poignant statement about a generation suppressing its most fervent emotions underneath a Paxil haze.

Broken Peaces

Theatre Unbound rides a subway to fabulousness...the narratives are compelling...Coulombe has a particular interest in the tales that new immigrants bring to this country, and several of her characters' accounts of political violence in their native lands are harrowing.

Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)

Delta Giordano, in a completely fetching performance, plays Constance as brainy but self-thwarting, afraid of the passions to which she is entirely enthralled.

How Was The Show

The Most Massive Woman Wins 2009

I almost can't believe I'm giving a Fringe show five kitties, but I'm doing it and I have no doubt. This production was, by far, my favorite performance of the entire Festival. All four performers present deeply touching portrayals of doubt, guilt, beauty, and love. Intended to address body image for women, this show addressed, in my opinion, the issue of body image for all of us. Do NOT miss the final performance!

Frankenstein Incarnate: The Passions of Mary Shelley

A work overflowing with ideas and understanding.

The Most Massive Woman Wins 2009

Tough issues that, while at first glance seem to be about the female experience, are unexpectedly and powerfully universal - this is a show for both genders. Incredibly moving, well directed and beautifully performed.

Stan Peal

24-Hour Play Project 2005

Always interesting and funny.

Anna Bella Eema

...a fractured operetta about the inchoate, wild countours of the distinctly feminine interior landscape.
