The Taming

...a whole lot of fodder for political satire, humor, and wackiness.... The Taming delivers. Clever, funny and topical.

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 Good Fight

When you go to see the premiere of a new play, this is the kind of thing you hope to see. It's doubly wonderful because it's so rare.

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.

Simply Gerta

Theatre Unbound looked at the possiblity and potential of my words, where I could be, rather than where I had been. That's a rare and honorable artistic choice.

Babe: An Olympian Musical

Breaks as much ground in theater as its amazing lead character did in sports.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself - what a wonderful variety of thought-provoking and fun work.

Murderess

Emotionally compelling...terrifying...darkly comedic.

The Most Massive Woman Wins 2009

I encourage all American women to see this show. It is an excellent script filled with controversial subject matter, delivered sensitively and honestly by four very brave and incredibly talented actors. Very professional work and great use of space. This show gets my vote for the best of the Fringe.

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.

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.
