Much of the show is simply stolen by [Matthew] Fairlee, who displays an amazing versatility as he works his way through each scene.” - Lou Bernard (The Lock Haven Express) 

Quite frankly, [Ian] Fairlee stole the show with his energy” - April Olsen (Up and Coming Weekly, Fayetteville) 

Real life twins, Ian and Matthew Fairlee team up for their Green Room 42 debut in “The Very Good Show: An Evening with the Fairlee Twins”. Known for their roles together off-broadway in “The Boys From Syracuse,” and separately off-broadway in “The Underclassman” (Ian) and “Medicine” (Matt), the twins are teaming up to take the New York theatre world by storm, (and get a few good youtube videos while they’re at it!). With musical theatre favorites from “Side Show” to “Dear Evan Hansen,” and pop hits by Jason Mraz, Pink, and Jay Brannan, Ian and Matt deliver a show that’s both perfectly “Twinning,” and surprisingly unexpected. And yes, the show will be very good.

Real life twins Ian and Matthew Fairlee—enlivened the stage with their antics and seemed to be lit from inside with an infectious joy.” - Jacquelyn Claire (www.stagebiz.com)
