Lost in Reviews
"A display of sheer creativity and impressive flexibility ... Here comes a filmmaker with gusto and talent to boot."
"Audience members...were awed by his command of the play’s opening monologue, a 15-minute soliloquy of sorts where he pours out his soul to the audience."
"With giddy sophistication and blatant charm ... Bloomquist perfectly acts the quintessential matinee idol: bored, blasé, ’prettier than thou’ and obviously a cad. Dressed to the nines ... could he be a murderer?"
Critics on the Aisle
"[This] young writer, director and star knows what he's doing."
