    This is a funny, weird, and tautly written work. I think this has some of the clearest and most interesting dialogue I have read in a while. These people each have such an idiosyncratic point of view of the world and their behavior is even more so. Read this, fall in love with this, produce this. It's dope.

    Delightfully funny and incredibly weird, Soltero-Brown has delivered another winner here. What I love most about Soltero-Brown's writing is that he creates such fully-fleshed out characters. Don't get me wrong, there is no one LIKABLE in this play (except for Dave, maybe). Taylor is painful, Simon is incredibly weird and cowardly, Rhonda is demanding. They are all deeply flawed people caught in a ridiculous, madcap adventure where things keep getting weirder and funnier and more frustrating. A hilariously frantic show that defies all the stereotypes of an "affair play." Tons of fun, well-written, and structured interestingly.

    Bourgeois love is a complication of its own creation. It is only appropriate that the loopy love triangle present in this work are self-obsessed and selfish, and I approve of the message that ridiculous situations will eventually play themselves out ridiculously. Getting letter-shamed by a world-famous political prisoner is a particularly inspired touch. Dig into Soltero-Brown’s hilarious dialogue and enjoy this hip script!

    For a stimulating merry-go-round of wanton behavior, look no further than this quirky, sordid tale of infidelity, sexual diffidence, and “la douleur exquise” (the exquisite pain). Speaking of French, it was like this play took elements of Jean Cocteau’s play LA VOIX HUMAINE (The Human Voice) and added a couple more characters and kookiness so it’s more like “plaisir exquise” (exquisite pleasure).

    The Princess of Caspia beautifully explores the limitations of our reality to govern and maintain monogamous relationships. Soltero-Brown's stunningly unique dialogue style sings through this fast, fantasy-filled race to end Simon and Rhonda's affair and start a "real" life together. But what is real in this world of secret romance and role-playing? Can authentic pleasure and true love ever be found when everyone is participating in their own fairytale, playing the part that suits them best in the moment? Explore these questions and more in this joyful, poetic, somewhat twisted peice.
