We’re already a week into the Hollywood Fringe proper, and audiences can’t get enough of Theatre Unleashed’s Met Again. This gorgeous new work by Jacob Smith has been wowing capacity crowds of patrons and critics alike with every performance. But hey, don’t take my word for it:

So what’s it all about? Well, life goes by fast, and all you’ll remember are the most important parts, especially when it comes to someone you love. But those meaningful relationships are often truly defined by the little moments in between. Met Again, a moving new play by Jacob Smith, takes a look at the entirety of a unique but familiar relationship, from beginning to end, and how those big and small moments, connections, talks, fights, celebrations and experiences all come to mean something more. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes completely heartbreaking, Met Again is like watching a collection of home movies on fast forward…with someone whom you share a special kind of love.

Fun Fact – this isn’t this story’s first time being told on the Fringe stage. Jake originally spun this tale into a piece titled Two Minute Life Story and premiered it in the first iteration of Theatre Unleashed’s 25 Plays Per Hour. It quickly became a fan favorite and was a mainstay of every iteration of 25PPH going forward. We’d talked with Jake about expanding the piece into a full-length play for a long time, and I’m so glad to see he finally did it.

I’ll tell you one thing: if you walk out of this show with a dry eye, you have no heart whatsoever. Don’t miss it.

Speaking of can’t-miss events, A Very DIE HARD Christmas is selling out quickly! Get your tickets ASAP!

Finally, my love-letter to Boston Red Sox baseball, Pink Hat Blues, opens this month as a part of Live From the Hobgoblin, It’s Hank! at The Hobgoblin Playhouse!

Fringe On!
