Oh my goodness! These are the things that don't upset me!
Sorry, I had to lapse into my Mad Hatter voice--because the reviews are in, and they're terrific!
Here's what the critics say:
"An uplifting comic tale well told." SF Chronicle
"An entertaining, no-holds barred look at life as an employee of Disneyland...This is a surprisingly and impressively physical performance by Allen." Stark Insider
"For anyone who loathes the upcoming high holy days of manufactured cheer, Working for the Mouse is the best antidote. Ever." Dogmom's Dish
"...Allen's uncanny ability to immerse the audience in his backstage-Disney world..." SF Appeal
"Engaging storytelling, hilarious impersonations and wonderful imagination..." Bay Area Arts Blog
And catch my interview on KRON!
We had an awesome run over at Impact Theatre in June and July--picked up some sweet reviews, including the clapping man from the San Francisco Chronicle, and we even extended the run! And now we're back at the Exit, where we had some terrific shows as part of the SF Fringe Festival some years back.
Come on down and see us!

Hiya, Mouse Heads! So, as promised (you thought I forgot, didn't you?) I am happy to announce that Working for the Mouse, the play, is coming back to the Bay Area!
Yep, the solo show that started it all is returning to Impact Theatre on June 23! They're the scrappy little theatre in Berkeley that was brave enough to mount that very successful production several years ago. I've been very busy working as a playwright on a few projects and working with my own little theatre company, Black Box Theatre, but now I am really pleased to work on this new production. But this is just a limited run.
So, if you've never seen the live show but you've been enjoying the YouTube clips and you want to know the rest of the story...c'mon down! If you did see the original run, well...come on back, all your favorite characters will be there! It's been a blast getting this baby back on its feet. It's really energized me to get back to working on the book...but more about that later. I hope to see you in the theatre!
