COMMENTS:

LOL is a play about a man who can't seem to get a woman so he goes
online to find one. When he notices that woman are getting together in
"girl on girl" chat room he adopts a female alter ego to meet woman. As
the play progresses he begins to loose sight of his own self and starts
to fight with his female ego to gain control of his identity. This play
was fun and engaging tackling the issues of Internet sex and
relationships. This a concept that most people in the audience are
familiar with, whether they would ever admit it or not. I laughed as
the actor began to struggle between the two identities. This play takes
something that happens all the time online, someone taking on another
identity, and takes it to the extreme. It was fun and I'm glad I got a
chance to see it!

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

I see this play having a possible run on Off-Off Broadway. It hits
home for a lot of people in today's society, everyone understands the
issues of the Internet and that can relate to society as a whole.
