Mike Poblete’s Play -Rave Reviews

35118949_148495386012808_5542328993937620992_o“‘Best Bet’.  In Mike Poblete’s intriguing new play, Surfacing, the four-person cast is strong.  Surfacing is a play that succeeds on all levels.  It’s comic, punchy, uncensored dialog is enough to make anyone relax.  The language is definitely for adults, yet leaves space for one’s inner child…Seeing a bunch of talented, sensitive characters who all have social anxiety and deep-seated feelings of inadequacy is a helpful reminder that, yes, probably some part of us is achieving things in spite of ourselves.  And Poblete’s remarkable writing comes vividly to life…”

—Ed Molin, theasy.comhttp://www.theasy.com/Reviews/2018/S/surfacing.php

“Surfacing was hands down brilliant.  Poblete holds a deep tome peppered with great wit.  He understands of concept of dark comedy.”

Running through August 3 at the Flamboyant Theater, the Clemente, Suffolk Street.
