David Schmader's ("Impossible for Anyone at The Stranger to Review") Show

Posted by on Sat, Mar 31, 2012 at 6:37 PM

I have the attention span of a goldfish, so the prospect of sitting still and silently through a play without an intermission makes me break out in hives. It's why I don't write theater reviews. Add to that the fact that David Schmader himself has said that it would be impossible for anyone at this paper to review this show, for obvious, nepotistic reasons. But holy cowfish. I've seen A Short-Term Solution to a Long-Term Problem, twice now, and Schmader is brilliant. He's as hilarious as you'd naturally expect, but, much more importantly, riveting from beginning to end. I strongly encourage you to get tickets before it ends on April 14. Or somebody might beat the crap out of you. Like, yourself.

It was amazing. Do yourself a favor and see it. And then also go see his Showgirls performance on the 17th.

Tottally agree, I'm not one for theatre and have totally ADD but daves show was so riveting, the use of YouTube viral videos in his show mixed with the emotional deep cuts in my heart was amazing. I think it was the first thing I saw that made me laugh and then cry in a matter of seconds. that to me was amazing. Hats off to schmader on a beautiful piece.
