Testimonial

"I met half of the Tasty Monster Team at the Edinburgh Fringe road show in NYC, which I attended as recommended by Peter Marino, an Edinburgh Fringe Veteran. I immediately liked Heather, she presented an honest and sincere commitment to making my journey across the pond everything I could hope for. I met her counterpart Luke in Brooklyn a few weeks later and he sealed the deal. I signed on with them to be my mentors. It was an investment well worth the money and the contract exceeded far beyond my expectations.

They attended my first full-length staged reading of the show I wrote in Matt Hoverman’s Go-solo workshop. They gave me constructive edits to help me develop it further for Edinburgh. They helped me draft my press release to send to venues in Scotland and I received 3 offers within 2 days. Luke continued to support the show for the following three presentations in NYC. He met me at all techs and directed the lighting. In addition to this support, Luke and Heather met with me many times in NYC before I left for Scotland to address other concerns, set up a twitter account and a fan page on Facebook – Luke is a social media genius.

Once I arrived in Edinburgh, Luke drove me to Ikea to get my set and helped load it into my venue. They had arranged an interview at FringeReview, a highly regarded Fringe journal, the day I landed. I was instantly in the mix! I worked with them again for an hour on my show at Fringe Central and they gave me more direction to help “take the air out” of my story and strengthen character development.  They scheduled a photographer to take production shots at my venue during our tech slot which was a nice perk for sending out round two press releases to local reviewers. In fact, through their resources I had critics in the house during my first two shows.

As a first time fringe attendee I highly recommend this husband and wife team. They are sincere and embedded in the Edinburgh Fringe scene. I give them 5 stars! And believe me stars in Edinburgh are important!!"
