EdFringe Review - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

We're very pleased to share our latest review from EdFringe Review! Make sure to check out the entire article below!

⭐⭐⭐⭐ - From the EdFringe Review:

“Lisa VillaMil manages write raw human feeling with passion and insight; and only two such fine actors could help her pull it off.”

— HELENA SNIDER, Edinburgh Fringe Review

“The real highlight of this show was the acting. Tierney Nolen and William Foote, the respective actors, are utterly engaging and committed to their roles.”

— HELENA SNIDER, Edinburgh Fringe Review

We're extremely proud to be entering our THIRD and FINAL week of performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. If you haven't already, make sure you book your tickets before the show is GONE this Saturday!

FIVE STARS & Best of the Fringe

Congratulations to the entire NOW WHAT Theatre team for their ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review & BEST OF THE FRINGE from DC Metro Theatre Arts:

Lisa VillaMil’s Kara Sevda (at Shopkeepers through July 22) is an exhilarating piece of theater, masterfully and assuredly directed by Kat Haan, beautifully acted by Tierney Nolen and William Foote, thoroughly realized in this Now What Theatre production, and you should see it. It is the best thing I’ve experienced at Fringe so far. It is the best play I’ve seen this year.
— MIKE BEVEL, DC Metro Theater Arts

We are overjoyed to have received this gorgeous review ("love letter") to our show and we hope you'll snag a ticket to come to see one of our LAST THREE SHOWS in the states before heading off to EdFringe! SO, book your tickets now before we fly off across the ocean! 

xx, NWT Team

Surprise Review!

We're so excited to present a review from our time at Ithaca Fringe Festival in April:

The writing is vivid and evokes a terrifying, all-too-believable world; the acting is truthful and detailed; the direction is focused; and the sound design is both subtle and affecting. See it if you can.
— Amina Omari

Check out the entire review here, for an insightful and lovely look into the world of the play (but beware of minor spoilers). And if you're still in Portland catch our FINAL SHOW of Kara Sevda at PortFringe TONIGHT at 9:15pm!

Fantastic pre-show shot taken by audience member  @TBBackus !

We made it and we couldn't be more excited to be in Portland for the next week! Our first show on Saturday evening was a great success and already we're overwhelmed by the warm welcome we've received!  

We have TWO more shows here at PortFringe where we'll be performing at Portland Stage Studio Theatre! Catch us TONIGHT (Tues 6/20) at 9:15pm & TOMORROW (Wed 9/21) at 9:15pm! Tickets available at the door!

We're also extremely proud to have received our first review here in Portland; check out this FIRST LOOK recommended review:

The two actors had a definite chemistry and produced quick, sharp banter, but the real draw of the show was their individual monologues…

Festival Finale & First Review!


There you have it, Tampa Fringe has come to a close after an incredibly successful and exciting weekend! We're so thankful to have been apart of the inaugural year down here in Tampa and to have met so many talented and supportive artists! We had a great run with wonderful audiences and saw some stunning work from our fellow fringers!

We also got our first tour review from Creative Loafing Tampa, who called Kara Sevda:

An increasingly moving testament to both the good and the evil humans are capable of. [...] the pair moves from suspicion to friendliness to fear to a kind of love, with utter believability.
— David Warner, Creative Loafing

Make sure you check out the review in its entirety! We couldn't be more grateful for our time in Florida this week but now we must venture north! This week the team sets their sights on Minnesota as we get ready to start our four-week Residency at the Lyric Center for the Arts

Cheers, the NWT team! x
