FULL LENGTH: Let’s Fix Andy deals with male body images, friendship, and growing into being an adult. Andy’s best friends, Logan, Marcus, and George decide it’s time they step in after he’s been dumped by his long time girlfriend Megan, to snap him out of his funk. All three of them have different ideas of what Andy actually needs, and so Andy is dragged to the gym, the bar, and a cabin in the woods before things come to a head and he declares that he doesn’t need fixing. By the end of the play, with all four playing video games in Andy’s safe place, his couch, they realize that there’s no fixing anyone, and all any of us can really ask for is friendship that is focused on acceptance for who we are.

    LET'S FIX ANDY is a spot-on examination of brotherhood post-college, those 30-somethings playing video-games and drinking beer that are awkwardly figuring out what it means to be a man. Why do we men try so hard to fix ourselves and other men, why do we foolishly adhere to this myth of American masculinity? How can we stop doing this? It seems like Bublitz is pointing us to a possible way out of the toxicity -- getting real, recognizing our insecurities and imperfections, focusing less on our bodies. And it may involve some mangria. Goofy. Smart. Endearing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR PRODUCTION!!!

    Nobody writes men like Bublitz. They should all be lining up around the block to thank her for allowing them to speak in all their machismo and vulnerability without ever disrespecting them. Bublitz's understanding and love for these frustrating, emotionally stunted men is on every page of this script. The spotlight she shines on their ridiculous, real, irritating, and redeemable behavior would make men squirm in their seats. The end is perfect and left me feeling relieved. Maybe Andy isn't fixed. Maybe the problem of toxic masculinity isn't fixed. But this play is a good start.
