Reviews:

“If you think feminists lack a sense of humour, Full Figure Theatre will change your mind.”

—The Vancouver Sun,
Vancouver, Canada

“[way too blonde] is snappy, funny and incisive... with a rapid fire of sketch, song and biting burlesque... colorful, punchy and deliciously vicious satirical skills.”

—Time Out,
London, England.

“… a clever satire on female stereotypes in the media. Cleverly written and extremely well performed by the trio.”

—The Adelaide Advertiser,
Adelaide, Australia

“… gritty, intelligent, rapid-fire comedy about the pitfalls of womanhood. It is much, much better than TV.”

The Sudbury Sun,
Sudbury, Canada

“...Full Figure Theatre cruises the traumas of being a woman with the ease of a quick flick through Cosmo...way too blonde is ideal for those struggling through a bad hair day.”
