"Jordan Harrison's play Marjorie Prime... intricately explores memory, technology, and human relationships. With a talented cast and firm direction, Theatre Artists Studio is presenting an intriguing production of this thought-provoking play. Set in the not-too-distant future, the play introduces us to the concept of Prime: artificial intelligence robots that resemble our loved ones and are designed to help us retain memories and provide a positive mental health environment. While the play isn't perfect due to a few parts that could be further fleshed out to fill in some details, Harrison beautifully explores the theme of memory and the role it plays in our lives and relationships. Kathleen Butler's direction beautifully navigates the 70-minute, one act, intimate drama that allows the themes to unfold organically and skillfully. ...Judy Lebeau's nuanced depiction of Marjorie captures the character's confusion, vulnerability and resilience. Laura Munoz-Bottini and Tom Koelbel are strong as Tess and Jon...Aaron Seever brings a warm yet appropriately impersonal touch to his portrayal of Walter Prime."  - Gil Benbrook, (click here to read the complete review)
