That was the most incredible performance I may ever see.

This show for me hit the Broadway caliber and every person sang with beauty, grace, intention and the full range of emotions. The children were no exception; they could easily get a part on Broadway and kill it. The directing, acting singing and flow of the show had a pure beauty rarely seen anywhere. Thank you for the hard work, it paid off BIG!!!♡♡♡

I just wanted to say WOW! What a gorgeous and moving show you’ve put together. The arc of the show is so clear and everyone’s doing such nice, honest work. The moment where Small Alison sings “Maybe not right now” about changing her clothes... Why don’t you just kill me right there? The set and lights are beautiful.

The (live) music is incredible! The band sounds great and it blends so well with what the actors are doing onstage. Really really incredible work. Thank you so much for the experience.

This is a love letter to Kip Savoie: Thank you for pouring out your heart and soul into Fun Home. I love you for it. And I love that you brought it to our very special stage at Verge Theater. ... It is a show bigger than anything that has ever graced that tiny, yet ever so magical stage.

I may not have shared the specific experiences of the characters that I was really, just plain lucky to encounter tonight, but I certainly shared their emotions: so purely and strongly and distinctly. Thank you Kip Savoie, and all who dared to bare their souls in this beautiful show, in this powerful little theater. Enjoy your run!!! You deserve to find so much peace and joy in this work.
