A British-style kitchen sink drama. Colin Noden: “Do you like British-style mystery movies? Do you like soap operas that teeter on the verge of melodrama and have you shouting, “Just do it already!” at the screen? Do you love both? Then congratulations, you are going to love this play.”
Gauthier and Caplan: “Civilized is a powerful and impactful show, but sitting through this production is not easy; it feels tense, uncomfortable, and oftentimes horrifying. But these are the ways art changes us, by challenging us to sit in our discomfort and listen to the stories and the history that needs to be told.”
Emmanuelle Gingras: “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Becoming a Woman is about breaking barriers; it’s about love; it’s about an ex-future wife, it’s about “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”—but mostly, it’s about unapologetically being your true self.”
Colin Noden: “whY! allows us to explore the question through amazing original music performances, poetry performance, skits, and dancing puppets being bell-chased by Aunty (I’m not sure that part was in the script).”
Barbara Popel: “On opening night, the audience gave the two performers a standing ovation. As their target audience of young and young-ish folks who are serial daters finds them, I predict this will be a regular occurrence.”
Brian Carroll: “A show for the entire family, I heartily agree with the first family of Iceland: go see this show.”
Colin Noden: “What a romp! Satire as it should be. All fun and no snark. I’m glad someone found a way to squeeze some laughs out of the past few years.”

Jared Davidson: “John Koensgen, James Richardson and Laura Hall each unleash purposeful performances that bring clarity and life to complex material.”
Jared Davidson: “Webber’s funny, self aware musings spiral into darker thoughts and anxiety, only to return to a confidence grounded in a love of cats.”
Helen Lam: This play seems to be more like a dramatized memoir than a theatre drama.
Helen Lam: “There is only one more showing for Ludwig(a) at Fringe, so don’t miss it.”
