This was a well acted, well staged and very interesting show! The show could have easily had awkward pauses or spaces, but this production keeps it moving, keeps it realistic and keeps it very believable. Parts are rough to watch, as the topic of...continued

This was well acted and well staged. It did portray a marriage too much like many others. This love hate relationship does mirror many and is the cause of a great deal of divorce. Partners are often unable to control their impulses of rage and...continued

See this show. This is acting at its very best. I was riveted by the characters and the intensity of the actors so much that I was still shaking after the show. Profiles has always specialized in intimate productions, and it works to its...continued

As always Profiles Theatre pushes that line between emotional breakdown and just plain awkwardness. For Fifty Words, it's like you have front row seats to how mom and dad really fight when you're not around. At moments you feel like you need to...continued

This was a very interesting and TOTALLY thought provoking production. The theatre is set up in such a way that the audience faces each other and the stage is in the middle...how very creative! The man and woman who play the husband and wife were...continued

Such a wonderful look into a marriage that made you feel as if you were eavesdropping on someone's life. The writing was spotty, however, sometimes feeling believable and then not. The characters went from screaming at each other to laughing and...continued

Phenomenal navigation through the destuctive forces that bind us together. New life breathed into the marriage vow, "in sickness and in health" MUST SEE! Profiles is an intense, dedicated, high-caliber company of actors.

Excellent production, terrific acting and a fine, disturbing play reminiscent of Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf."

Cast received standing ovation at the end of the show. Director and author would have, too, if they'd been there. Well written play, well directed, and fully formed characters. In "Stage Kiss" the characters say that the audience is embarrassed...continued
