Robin Morgan:
The "otherizing" of women is the oldest oppression known to our species, and it's the model, the template, for all other oppressions.

PRESS: WHAT OUR AUDIENCES ARE SAYING

The Most Massive Woman Wins
Fringe Festival 2009

It is easy for me to get seduced by all the funny, funny and funny that Fringe has to offer. It's great to be reminded occasionally that Fringe also offers some damn outstanding straight-up theatre. Not that this show didn't have its funny moments, it did, but went much further and much deeper than 90% of the other work at Fringe. Really terrific; definitely among the top 3 shows of the festival for me. Congratulations to the actors and crew of MMWW and also to Theatre Unbound -- I was familiar with the company but had never made it to a production before; now I can't wait to see what happens next.

I almost can't believe I'm giving a Fringe show five kitties, but I'm doing it and I have no doubt. This production was, by far, my favorite performance of the entire Festival. All four performers present deeply touching portrayals of doubt, guilt, beauty, and love. Intended to address body image for women, this show addressed, in my opinion, the issue of body image for all of us. Do NOT miss the final performance!

- Ryan Grimes

 

This extant piece about women and their body image is very important for our society and culture to see ... I recommend this to anyone on their fringe journey. 4 out of 5. .

- Cody Stewart

 

I encourage all American women to see this show. It is an excellent script filled with controversial subject matter, delivered sensitively and honestly by four very brave and incredibly talented actors. Very professional work and great use of space. This show gets my vote for the best of the Fringe.

- Katie Starks

 

Kudos to cast and crew for putting this piece together. Acting, directing and design are all top notch. Need something to see the last day of Fringe? Check this out, you wont be disappointed.

- Matthew Greseth

 

This show is probably my favorite Fringe show I have seen this year. It was powerful and emotional, while also being humorous. The acting was phenomenal; each woman injected realism and charisma into the characters they played. Every woman can identify with the struggle to be comfortable with her own body while being bombarded with negative messages from the media, from their significant others, and even from their own parents. There was one character in particular with whom I strongly identified, but all four of the characters were realistic portrayals of American women. I highly recommend this show!

Wonderfully thought provoking play. Excellent writing and the acting was spot on. This is what the Fringe is all about. Thanks to all of those who made this one come to life.

- SBRK Hart

 

This story has something for every woman, and enough humor for the serious to really sink in. Brava, ladies.

- Ariel Pinkerton

 

This was a great show. The cast did a tremendous job with some very compelling, usually taboo, material. Nice job ladies!

- Meaghan DiSciorio

 

The subject was heavy (no pun intended). The topic was so relevant, and they said it all out loud. I admire these four actors--Bravo!

- Ellen Jordano

 

The acting, and directing were great! This is the type of show that all Fringe makers should aspire to. The women all came out ready to play, and delivered great performances. Be proud of of your work! You deserve it. A must see for all Fringers!

- John Bera

 

four amazingly talented, beautiful women. a gorgeous script. wonderful use of an intimate space. these are the ingredients of good fringe, and theatre unbound serves up a healthy heaping. indulge yourself!!!

- Amber Bjork

 

this show was so worth it! i just sat there wanting to laugh and cry because all of it was so true and terrible at the same time. it sounded like they were writing about my life! life of all women. it was really powerful that they were so beautiful but yet dealt with the same issues i do. that says so much about our society and womens' issues. a great glimpse of the life of a woman for men to see too!

- brenda atkins

 

Very well written, directed and performed. What seems to be a cosmetic issue goes much much deeper. Go See.

- dixie treichel

 

This was an excellent show with a first rate cast and an important topic. Two days after seeing the show I am still thinking about the messages it had for the audience. I highly recommend it!

- Peggy Bandit

 

The gutsiest, most engaging, painful, wonderful, transforming show I've seen in years. Women: Get set for shocks of recognition. Men: Yes, it really is like this. Come only if you have the courage to grow.

- Tess Galati

 

Tough issues that, while at first glance seem to be about the female experience, are unexpectedly and powerfully universal - this is a show for both genders. Incredibly moving, well directed and beautifully performed.

- Stan Peal

 

The on-stage cast and their supporting team put on a strong show ... While there is some humor, this show has powerful drama and a viewer needs to be prepared to listen and and to think. If you are looking for a show with social content consider seeing this one.

- Richard Shields

 

This is a great cast who knows how to use the arena space well. They bravely explored topics that most of us would probably prefer not to explore, and did it well.
