COMMENTS:

Weight has been the only play out of seven I've seen that I have liked. The acting was amazing. I truly thought I was watching a 500 pound black woman on stage, even though the actress is a 140 pound white woman. She is excellent at accents and becoming the character. The different stories told, centered around a woman who has a weight issue, are all compelling and several people, including me, were crying.

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

Weight could definitely be a successful off-off broadway play.
