Bite-Size, An Evening of Micro Theatre

The Westword, Juliet Wittman 2018 FEATURE

Grundei and Miller’s intention for Bite Size is to foster community, and in a sense the way sound bled from room to room was part of the charm of the evening: It created connection among these very different works and within the audience. Judging from the laughter, warmth and conversation that percolated through the entire evening, I’d say the producers have more than reached their goal. ENTIRE REVIEW
