Tamburlaine

Single White Fringe Geek February 17, 2016

“Well, that’s gotta be the easiest that a reboot of a Christopher Marlowe play’s gone down in a long time. Normally, if you’d told me someone was doing their own version of Tamburlaine, I would have been ambivalent. But the collaborators on this project have never let me down before, so I figured I’d give it a go. And I’m very glad I did. Add Sheep Theater (the cheeky brainchild of Joey Hamburger, Iris Rose Page, and Michael Hugh Torsch) to the list of young theater companies I want to follow very closely over the coming years. If the energy and creativity behind Tamburlaine is any indication, Sheep Theater is liable to take off like a rocket.”

Deus Ex Machina

Single White Fringe Geek August 03, 2015

“Mom and I approached two shows about religion on our second day of Fringing with a fair amount of skepticism (even though I had one of them, this one, in my Top Ten for the year going into the festival). But, for a change, in both cases, we were rewarded. One of those uncharacteristically good Fringe shows playing faith for laughs was Joey Hamburger’s Deus Ex Machina.”

George at Bedlam Theater

Cherry and Spoon July 9, 2015

“Grilled cheese, fries, a beer, and zany, topical, funny, original theater. Is there a better way to celebrate the independence of this great nation? Our foremothers and fathers fought the British and won our freedom 239 years ago so that someday, their story could be told in a light-hearted and irreverent way in front of an audience enjoying good food and drinks. I’m joking of course, but in all seriousness one of the great things about this country is that we can freely make fun of ourselves and use theater and art to entertain and make commentary. George does exactly that and makes for a fun and festive night out.”

The Most Dangerous Game at Bedlam Theater

Janet Preus – HowWasTheShow.com – Jan. 15, 2015

“I just loved it. This is exactly the sort of thing I hope to find in a small, low-budget production: a smart script, the right casting and a clear idea of what the show is all about.”

Rob Callahan — Vita.mn — Jan. 15, 2015

“This Most Dangerous Game is a wryly genre-savvy tale that rebels when it can and, when it can’t, just subtly winks through the fourth wall instead. It’s fun, light fare sprinkled with some gallows humor. Its manic energy is infectious, and the post-applause murmur among the crowd that packed the Bedlam on opening night was that of an audience who got far more out of it than they were expecting.”

The Most Dangerous Game is a good way to chase mid-January blues away.”
