IF THERE WAS EVER A REASON TO GO TO THE THEATRE — THIS IS IT.

"BAKERSFIELD MIST" is a brilliant play, beautifully written and directed by Stephen Sachs and stunningly acted by Jenny O'Hara and Nick Ullett.

Los Angeles has a runaway hit on its hands.

------------------------------------------------------------------------- "As for real-life spouses O'Hara and Ullett, their mutual affinity brilliantly serves them as they negotiate the hairpin turns and clashing motives of their characters. Merely Ullett's barely disguised look of horror at the white-trash milieu he has entered is worth a semester of Stanislavsky study, just as his gradually uproarious monologue about Lionel's first realization of what art means is worth the show."

Hollywood Fringe Fest returns, 'Bakersfield Mist' at Fountain | Jordan Young
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
"O'Hara and Ullett milk every ounce of comic gold under Sachs' deft direction, as the play moves from sophisticated serio-comedy to knockabout farce and back. Inspired by true events and written with the pair (who are married in real life) in mind, “Mist” is nothing less than an 85-minute master class for actors, and an unqualified joy for everyone else."

The standing ovation at the conclusion of the play is ample evidence that the audience believed them and there is no doubt that if they had taken a poll after the show as to how many would root for Maude and how many would side with Percy it would be a hands down tie!"

In the moment, O'Hara and Ullett, bring this quirky story beautifully to life. This is the Real McCoy. The Art of Theatre, when presented with such care, as this show is, is undeniable."

'Bakersfield Mist' | Review by Karen Weinstein | June 2011
------------------------------------------------------------------------- "In real life, Ullett and O'Hara have been married for years. Their onstage timing reflects the kind of chemistry that takes years to build. A knock-down, drag-out, chair-toppling fight, choreographed by fight director Doug Lowry, includes that timing and an exquisite sense that these two, on the far side of middle age, have their heart and soul in it, even if hand-to-hand combat is nowhere in their history. They are a dynamic pair and I would rush to see any performance featuring the two of them."
