    I love this. A play told entirely through phone calls/messages and radio, it took me back to the loneliness and uncertainty of my late 20s while at the same time being very funny.

    I watched Theater Mu's streaming production (2021) and felt like so much great stuff was packed into those two hours that whizzed by. We got to know each of the characters and their relationships intimately even though we saw them interact indirectly using technology. The moment of turning 30 seems perfectly captured. Wonderful script!

    Had the pleasure of watching a read-through organized by Theater Mu on April 27, 2020. It felt fitting for this play to be performed over Zoom. Strap in for a roller coaster of emotions! A genuinely funny, frustrating, intimate play.

    Susan Soon He Stanton’s “Today is My Birthday” is an elegantly-constructed script riddled with delight. An assortment of eclectic characters orbit through protagonist Emily’s day-to-day life, which offers the show’s ensemble actors the opportunity to span the full emotional gamut in a variety of scene-stealing performances. In filtering these scenes always through the lens of telecommunication—voicemail, phone calls, intercoms, broadcast radio—Stanton offers an incisive commentary on the 21st-century desire for human connection beyond technology.
