Laughter to tears to laughter again. "Jasmine's" Christmas book chokes me up thinking about a day later.

The Call Me Mr. Fry was like watching an elementary school "Blackboard Jungle". Impossible not to feel for the children and the teachers who have to deal with these kinds of classroom conditions on a day-in-day-out basis. Very touching when Mister...continued

A very funny show with tons of heart, and social relevance. The audience laughed, cried, cheered, clapped, and gave Mr. Fry a standing ovation. Do yourself a favor and go see this show, it's what theater is meant to be.

Amazing autobiographical story of the real challenges that teachers face in inner-cities working within our bureaucratic system. My wife (a teacher herself) said this was very true to form. It will both move you and make you laugh out loud. ...continued

Fry takes you into his class with clear, precise characters that make you think as you anticipate their next move. Great acting and touching story.

Jack Fry describes his first year of teaching in South Central LA. The show takes the audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Jack has amazing acting skills. A must see for anybody who has ever thought of teaching for a living.

This was a very entertaining show performed by a marvelous actor.
He puts a tremendous amount of emotion into his characters. It's
very challenging to put on a good one-man show for almost two
hours, but he succeeds. Definitely worth the money.

Don't be put off by the photo (over-the-top expression, knife in apple) - this is a great performance / experience, and all the more powerful as it's autobiographical. When reviews say 'you'll laugh, you'll cry' they're not kidding. Jack is an...continued

Great show! I am a teacher in South Central. He depicts it the way it is, with all the glory and horror of inner city teaching. No job on the face of the planet more worthy or more terrifying! If you don't teach and you want to see "how it really...continued
