★★★★★ “Ostensibly about gay marriage, MADE FOR EACH OTHER explores much more universal themes… the strongest, most powerful piece of theatre I’d see this fringe. Extraordinary.” -- ScotsGay Magazine

★★★★★ “No preachy piece of theatre, but a frequently hilarious and thoughtful analysis of a relationship. Impressively performed by John Fico. A magnificent play.” -- Fringeguru.com

★★★★★ “MADE FOR EACH OTHER is touching, funny, tragic, and above all, romantic. An incredible performance by John Fico.” -- Three Weeks

In MADE FOR EACH OTHER, Jerry and Vincent are deeply in love. But both men have secrets and inner voices reminding them of their unresolved pasts. Will they make it to the altar or will Vincent end up alone in an Alzheimer’s ward like his mother? A surprisingly hilarious romantic dramedy about love, sex, & the power of memory.

MADE FOR EACH OTHER is written by Off Broadway playwright Monica Bauer, directed by John D. FitzGibbon, and performed by John Fico.
