The situation’s faux good cheer was distressingly well-observed under Deborah Geffner’s staging.
Steven Leigh Morris – LA Weekly
The play was well-written by Jon Courie, expertly directed and well cast. It was happy, sad, reflective and thought-provoking. All in all, it was the kind of stupendous art that I have grown to expect from the Fringe.
Bob Leggett – LA Examiner
The old saying goes that there are a million tales of heartbreak in Hollywood, and Jennifer Aniston Stole My Life could well be another one of them, but it rises above cliché with fine performances, some welcome comedy relief, and a story with emotional resonance.
Kurt Gardner – Blog Critics
The quartet of performers is solid and thoughtfully directed by Deborah Geffner—but the play is as depressing and aimless as Lo, its lifelike darkness an uneasy fit with its modest laughs. It’s also thoroughly predictable, including a climax that should be shocking and horrifying but isn’t.
Eric Marchese – Backstage
In the teary-eyed conclusion, Rue’s normally perfunctory wink carries with it an unexpected pain.
Vincent Smetana – Cinesnatch
Featuring an excellent cast and full of lacerating wit and pathos, Jennifer Aniston Stole My Life is a meditation on the cult of celebrity and the shadowy personages left in its wake.
