I wanted to see this play because the review said it was a comedy. Basically, it was a one-man show. He talked on the phone for 1 hour and 40 minutes. It wasn't a comedy at all and it turned out to be a depressing story. Even though the acting was...continued

If you like a one man show that is a depiction of a one hour and 30 minute long series of single-sided phone conversations then you might like it. We found it boring and even fell asleep halfway through the performance. Also, the seats in the...continued

Amazing performance in an almost "one-man" show. The play is often funny; the language is strong, Although the producer, Felix, is unappealing at the beginning, you grow to like him as you see his inventiveness in adjusting to his constant...continued

one of the worst times I have spent. A man babble into a phone was most annoying.

This play is about a show producer and how he manipulates his clients and his backers. He has many regrets in life and only a fish to confide in. The Fish is actually the best part of the play. Although the dialog was clever and the premise fair...continued

Phil Johnson is excellent as the harried Broadway producer, who over the course of the play juggles multiple issues threatening his breakout production of "Mistakes Were Made". His passion and delivery are in full force, and I worried for his...continued

Great performance -- the stamina it takes to perform alone for 90 minutes is amazing -- and the "cast" handled it so well. Loved the staging; loved Denise; loved the secretary too.
Another terrific presentation from Cygnet. They never fail...continued

The entire show was incredibly well acted, staged and chocked full of nuanced energy and style. My wife and I were completely enthralled and entertained !!!

Play was tedious at times. Never really felt any reason to connect with the character. Writing was just ok.

I enjoyed the show very much. The actor was very good and convincing in his role. My only criticism is that it wasn't quite as funny as I thought it could be. There was some humor it in but it needed a little more. It got to dark and ...continued

I expected that this play would be funnier. While I applaud the work the actor took for this one-man show, it just wasn't as entertaining as I had hoped.

Interesting play. Language may offend a few. Phil Johnson does a great job for 90 minutes of non stop moving, emoting, and reacting to the circumstances his character, Felix, encounters trying to produce a play. Ending provides insight to some of...continued

I will offer no spoilers, but only this: pay attention to the slow build-up details, because Felix Artifex doesn't miss a beat!
By the end, you are so wrapped into his one-sided dialouge, you want to go out and find a good sheep dipping venture...continued
