From City Paper
Don't despair if you didn't catch the magical Bi Jean Ngo when she relaunched her Theatre Confetti performance troupe at Underground Arts last week. You'll get more than a few glimpses of the Philadelphia actress when she joins the stellar cast — Kevin Bergen, Maia Desanti, Hannah Gold, Dave Johnson and, most particularly, Frank X — of Microcrisis at the Adrienne.
This snarky snippet of political/financial intrigue shows off exactly what InterAct Theatre does best: present tart scripts that pit big against small, evil against good. Absurdist playwright Mike Lew and director Seth Rozin fashion a funny global game of cat and mouse amongst lenders and borrowers without a care for anyone (save the laughing-out-loud audiences). Lew is responsible for short, sharply sardonic theater pieces such as In Paris You Will Find Many Baguettes But Only One True Love and is a true new theater original.

I saw this Saturday the 20th, and it was superb! Please don't miss this one. A serious topic, but very entertaining and funny! And what talent - all of them, but Bi Jean Ngo's character was so unique and amazing. Darlene
