Lincoln 2020

by Holiday Kindard

World premiere at the Hollywood Fringe Festival

"Fast-paced satire Lincoln 2020... neatly directed by Colleen Labella, hits some sharp political notes... Labella skillfully directs the cast... its timing falls right on the mark."

-Monique A. LeBleu, Los Angeles Beat

"Colleen Labella has the difficult task of balancing all of this as the director, and she nails it! Putting it all together with so much clear dedication and vision that it feels effortless." -Matthew Robinson, Fringe Encore Judge
