A huge thanks to Gwenyfar Rohler for a fantastic review of Forget About It!
A few choice snippets:
“The script is skillfully crafted for such a young writer. Mims slowly reveals the unexpected and difficult ways to build dramatic tension, while still managing to surprise and unsettle the audience.”
“Bailey takes the audience there with him, and we slowly realize it’s not just his struggle, but his true coming-of-age moment that we are traveling with him.”
“Carter and Johnson as the comic relief are quite a pair. Actually, this is some of Johnson’s best work to date.”
“Carter has a complex set of emotions and desires to attempt to maneuver but still must make accessible to the audience. His interplay, especially with Bailey, is impressive.”
“Nicole’s Molly is so clearly a catch: She’s beautiful, sophisticated, kind, and smart.”
“Baucom’s Alice is a mirror… this is actually a very smart choice on Mims’ part. To build any real background for her would have distracted form Daniel’s journey, which wasn’t really about Alice, as much as about himself.”
“Director Nick Reed and his assistant director, Kristina Auten, combine a good eye for detail, especially in regards to movement and innuendo—an aspect of direction that it can take time to grow into.”
