from Martin Denton over at NYTheatre.com:"Melissa Skirboll has directed Straight Faced Lies with economy and verve. Her fine cast inhabit their roles intelligently..."
and over at stagebuddy.com (the review doesn't have a credit attached so for now it remains anonymous):"Snappy dialogue, superior plotting, and powerful use of space make “Straight Faced Lies” a delight." (Oh and by the way stage buddy, that "powerful use of space" was created by the director - yeah me.)
For the third year in a row I'm participating in the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity here in NYC. This year I'm directing the world premiere of Mark Jason William's STRAIGHT FACED LIES. We opened Sunday night to positive feedback from the audience and the audience last night seemed to laugh non-stop (which made me happy!) Sometime today we should see a review from Martin Denton at NYTheatre.com - will post it when it's up! It's been fun to work on this - the cast is very talented, the script is a delight -- and this year I don't have the added responsibility of being the producer as well as the director, which certainly simplifies things! Hope you can make it out to see one of the last four shows - I know there are seats left to our show today 4:00 p.m. at the Robert Moss Theater, 440 Lafayette St, NYC - see you there? https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/921739
Musings on creating...and whatever else it is that I do. hypnosis, life coaching, writing, acting, directing, taking leaps of faith, etc.
