LA Times:
“Critics’ Choice: The Los Angeles premiere of Lauren Gunderson’s latest play, directed by Robin Larsen, could be a testimonial to the power of intimate theater… a stunning exploration of cosmic interconnectedness.”

Los Angeles Post:
“Lauren Gunderson’s I and You, at the Fountain Theatre, surprised me so often, and so well, that it set a new world record… in a final coup de theatre which brings the play to one of the most startling, beautifully realized, completely unexpected yet perfectly logical endings I’ve seen: it’s moving, unearthly, and completely satisfying. Robin Larsen has directed at a crisp pace, but though the performances are propelled by nervous energy, we never feel rushed – when we need time to reflect, we get it. And those performances are extraordinary.”

Curtain Up

I and You is an unconventional coming-of-age love story and director Larsen negotiates the delicate dance between Finch and Hancock with a skilled hand. From Finch’s surreptitious appearance touch-ups to Hancock’s occasional bits of awkwardness over, yes, being in a girl’s bedroom, the production gets it right from the opening bell, all the way to its bittersweet conclusion.”

“Director Robin Larsen has elicited compelling performances from Finch and Hancock drawing the audience into their exploration of the inspiring subject matter, themselves individually and each other.”

“Director Robin Larsen did a masterful job of directing…
I AND YOU is one of those shows you will talk about all the way home. Ample laughter and some occasional tears in a great story beautifully told makes for a totally satisfying theatre going experience.”
