I don't care what your religious beliefs are. Everyone has grappled with why we were put on this earth or the theory of evolution. Whatever your personal bias is about religion and the viewing of this christian-based show, leave them at the door and take in the performance of Brent Hirose's one man show about Andrew and his inner struggle with his religion and the people around him that effect his life. Brent is a strong actor and moves smoothly between characters, which was the magical part of the show: letting you forget this was one person conjuring up his dad, his love interest and his two friends. It was his opening night performance, so whatever glitches that happened were excused. Brent also has 2 other shows going on! Man, and I'm only juggling a part-time job and a fringe program! I'm such a wimp! Anyway, for a strong performance and to watch his existential-wrestling match with Jesus Christ, go see this play.
