it's really really good. touching and strange, shakespeare remixed with imaginary canada and weird white castles. the performances are excellent and the writing is outstanding. it is funny at times and heartbreaking at times, the wrestling and the tight rope walking are awesome. GO SEE IT.


This play made me excited about theatre. I laughed so hard I snorted, I was moved, and I thought. The writing is brilliant and the performers are excellent and endearing. Go see Le BalcOn!


it's a story that starts with a flush in the bathroom of a white castle and ends with the shattered fragments of two teenage dreamers/almost lovers. it's a play that rests in the pit of your stomach and rubs the ache in your heart. and right when you are about to cry you will laugh, and you will laugh hard. it's $10, GO AND SEE IT. also, the neighborhood is pretty cool.
