The Reviews Are In!

Our run at the 2010 Philly Fringe was great. In addition to a sold-out performance, we also got some great reviews:

Chosen as “Fest Bet” by the Philadelphia City Paper!

A staff pick at the Philadelphia Weekly!

A “Fringe Pick” in the Philadelphia METRO!

“Clements’s absorbing meditation on verbal communication in all its forms was endearingly presented as a class on the “perfect conversation.” …Under Director Rosalie Purvis, Clements skillfully shepherded her performance from monologue to revealing audience participation…She examines the calibrated give-and-take of verbal reconciliations—and their failure when emotional intentions inevitably diverge. Conversation…proved the most absorbing experience I’ve had so far at this year’s Fringe.”

- Alaina Mabaso, Philadelphia Edge

“Funny, inventive and a little bit interactive, the lessons in Conversation ring true as as often as they ring nutso. A show worth talking about.”

- Patrick Rapa, Philadelphia City Paper
