  • The Re-Education of Fernando Morales

    This is a gripping play that truly broke my heart. Just when you think you understand what is happening in this non-linear ache of a memory - Lopez twists your expectations in unexpected ways. This play truly haunts me.

    This is a scary-ass play. Little girl ghosts and demon old men in a haunted house in Mexico... nope. That's nope meaning HELL YEAH... this play is a bad ass horror play and I can't wait to see it with light and sound effects!
  • The Armando Project

    Never have I seen a truer representation of what it's like to grow up as a Tejano, in a machismo-filled world when you're into theatre. This play is filled with characters who could be my primas and primos and I LOVE TO SEE IT! This is a nostalgia bomb for anyone who grew up in the 2000's in Texas. I highly recommend.
  • Apologies to Lorraine Hansberry (You Too August Wilson)
    6 Feb. 2022
    A wonderful gob-smack of a play! Gimme gimme more! How can I say anything about this play without absolutely spoiling it for everyone? A unique study on who can claim an identity as an individual when the identity of the group is at stake.
  • ¡Oso Fabuloso & The Bear Backs!
    5 Dec. 2021
    This musical has REVOLUTIONIZED me! As a latino bear cub I never felt like my own life was valid enough to write a musical about. Well shit, I was surely wrong. I'm obsessed. I have a million words to say and only this little box to write them in. Oso Fabuloso belongs on Broadway! It deserves a million productions for the next hundred years across the world. I want all my latino gay bear singer friends to get a chance to play this role, and so many more in the future! Thank you for writing this beautiful musical Julian!!!!
  • Honeybees
    9 Sep. 2021
    Honeybees is the most adorable, hilarious, and poignant play I've read in a long time. It's clever and wacky and important. AND IT'S GOT PUPPETS AND GAY BEE LOVE. Who could ask for anything more? Seriously haven't enjoyed myself this much in a long time. I highly recommend.
  • Black Mexican
    6 Sep. 2021
    I was lucky enough to attend a reading of this at the San Diego Latinx new play festival. It is possibly the greatest unproduced play in the Americas right now. Rachel Lynett creates a heart-breaking and moving story that magnifies the issues of colorism and identity-pirating within Latinidad. Bravo! This needs to be on Broadway TODAY.
  • (trans)formada
    6 Sep. 2021
    A beautifully poetic snapshot of a moment in a young trans person's life when they're on the cusp of accepting who they are and coming to terms with who they were. Brilliant and hilarious. A poignant coming-of-age comedy that is a truly healing ritual of communion.
  • Sum of My Blood
    9 May. 2021
    Nicky Rubiano is maybe the greatest character in any unpublished or unproduced play out there right now. He deals in power, absolutely. I might be obsessed with him. Sum of My Blood is a chilling investigation of the generational differences between young gay men and the older gay men who survived the AIDS epidemic. It's got all the camp and hilarity that one would expect from a jaded aging homosexual, with all of the thrilling horror that you expect from Jeremy King.
  • A Series of Inelastic Collisions
    4 May. 2021
    A deep and thoughtful take on the state of civility in the United States in the post-Trump era, and an intimate look at the role that parenting plays in the political ideals of children. I was deeply moved by Rain and her family, both biological and adopted, and moved to tears by their small gestures of love for each other. A very moving piece that demands a production immediately... is Diane Weist available?
