WHAT AUDIENCES ARE SAYING
The Polylogues team is ecstatic about the way the show has been received for its first two workshop runs! The houses were jam-packed with standing room only. There was laughter, there were tears, there were cringes of recognition. Lovers held hands and exchanged kisses. Neighbors whispered to each other. Folks came to see it again with more friends. The feedback has been incredible.
Here are some things audience members have said or written about the show:
“BREATHTAKING. I’m in awe. Polylogues is a relentlessly entertaining roller coaster and I hope another run is in its future!”
“Unlike anything I’ve ever seen.”
“The show and the extended conversation afterward was one of my favorite NYC Saturday nights ever!”
“An incredible show and deeply touching. Such colorful characters with great life wisdom. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.”
“Wonderful and brilliant. I’m so glad I saw it.”
“Refreshing, and eye-opening, and satisfying, and thought-provoking. Important and ground-breaking work. THIS is why I love theatre. Polylogues turned my night around.”
“Thoroughly enjoyed. Great arc, comical and substantive content, leaving with much to think about. Wonderful!”
“I wish it was a Netflix show so I could share it with everyone.”
“It’s an incredible and engaging piece, moving, hilarious and so thought provoking. I’ve just finished a nearly two-hour discussion about all the issues it raised with my friend.”
“Three of us talked about it for like four hours afterwards. I wish I could have highlighted passages of it so I could go back and read it again.”
“Can I buy the script? I want to study it.”
“It was everything.”
