COMMENTS:

Sex with Jake Gyllenhaal was a collection of different types of love,
some appropriate and wanted, others inappropriate an unwanted. Each
actor played multiply parts and committed to them so much that I forgot
the other characters they had played. The concept of the show was to
show people that everything starts when you connect with another
person. Some of the stories were cute, some pathetic, and some
completely horrifying. One of the scenes between a teacher and his 8th
grade student had me so enraptured that I forgot I was watching a play.
I started feeling so bad for the teacher that I had an overwhelming
urge to help him, almost as if it were reality. I really liked this
show, it was different and the acting was good as well.

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

I see this show possibly going to Off-Off Broadway. each story can
connect with some part of every audience member. Also the writing was
very good, very realistic.
