Instead of being linear with each person getting up and telling their story one after another, each story starts and stops as they intersect & intertwine. The Performers come into and act out each other's stories. Each person tells a real story from their life and a theme emerges during the rehearsal process. The theme this year:

REVIEWS

Robin Roth

The actors are talented, charming and very appealing. I enjoyed seeing them play supporting characters in each other’s stories. And the anecdotes themselves — heartbreaking, funny, all too real. A “novel” approach to storytelling.


Moving and surprising stories from each of the actors’ lives play out a “chapter” at a time, interspersed with each other, kept me on the edge of my seat. What happens next? I couldn’t wait for the next chapter.


I’d love to see WHAT? a story show part 2 next year!

Monique Reymond

I liked the originality of this concept and how well it was orchestrated.


I very much enjoyed What? a story show. In most traditional story-telling shows, each performer is given their allotted time to share their tale. This show takes story-telling to another level. Each story is broken down into segments and the performer will begin to narrate their personal tale. Then the story is brought to life and acted out with the other performers in the ensemble. 


Director Goodhart takes an original concept and soars with it. Each story is deeply personal and we get to actually relive it with not only the words and tone, but with the scene laid out before us.

Knowing that each story is true, independently written and told by each actor, made the play even more special. I especially liked the ones that I could relate to (my husband had an affair; and my daughter struggled in school, is highly creative, great at puzzles, and had one teacher that made all the difference!). 


Also, Alan Carnegie is my longtime friend, so I knew his story; he is not a real actor or screenwriter, but you would never know it. He knocked my socks off. His story was intelligently written, emotionally charged, and his delivery authentic (I was squirming at parts); he even had spot-on comedic timing!


My overall impression was a positive one; the play is fabulous, super entertaining! All the individual stories were interesting; the overlapping of the actors and the acting collaborations in the skits were so cleverly executed.


Can’t wait for the next one!”
