Portfringe

“Through the use of music, engaging audience participation, roll on the floor humor, realistic scenarios, and fantastic facial expressions, this show was amazing. A no-fear comedy, this is a must see.”


Theatre is Easy

“Notable scene stealers Kate Owens and Stephen Elrod have the audience in stitches from the second they set foot on stage.”

Comedy Cake

“She sounds like a just the PERFECT person to party with on a Saturday night! Why do I now wanna sing Sedaris’ Ronnie Vino tune, ‘It’s Friday night, I’m gonna get drunk, I’m gonna get laid, I’m gonna be late on Monday?’”


DC Metro

“By far the most totally engrossing performance of the evening was turned in by Kate Owens, playing Queen Marguerite, the king’s estranged first wife. She captures with grace the no-nonsense queen whose chillingly powerful, yet loving, directness ultimately wins the audience over to her side.”

Thinking Theater

“Kathryn rewards her party guests with an easy-peasy egg-bake cooking demo… the problem is, she can’t even see straight, much less teach a cooking lesson.”
