“”With plenty of pop culture candy, quirky magical realism, and a heaping helping of side-splitting silliness, Flying V’s newest show, Matt and Ben, has formulated a raucous recipe for a preparative to Fringe that lives up to their motto: “Be Awesome.”

These designs are, simply put, the work of talented artists who give a damn about their work, and it is refreshing to see… The play is direct, effective, and full-feeling despite its short length. The design is limited, but it perfectly fits its calling. The actors have found the heart of the piece and expressed it sans distractions to the audience. These are all things that make a kickass indie play, and one that, in Flying V’s own words, definitely knows how to “Be Awesome.”
