Los Angeles Times - Highly Recommended

"...As entertaining as it is thought-provoking, the play, presented by Echo Theater Company in Atwater Village, percolates with ideas about identity and diversity, conveyed through a tale of two people who might find love if the world would just leave them alone. It's written by a Los Angeles playwright who's headed nowhere but up: Boni B. Alvarez, whose previous plays include "Ruby, Tragically Rotund" and "Dallas Non-Stop.""

Edge - Somewhat Recommended

"...Alvarez is quite a meaningful playwright, but this latest work seems to have taken on too much social and emotional terrain to cover its desires adequately. Just who are these symbols of our ability to find variety for sexual and emotional needs? What is the background of the brother rivalry between Hudson and Mariano? How does Gigi maintain stability in a Los Angeles which is radically different from her beginnings in the Philippines? And what is with the Philippino/ Latino enmity?"

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...A sexually confused Filipino-American "ladyboy," the drag princess's sexually confused Mexican-American sort-of boyfriend, and the sort-of boyfriend's just plain confused sort-of girlfriend, all three of them in massive states of denial, play out a centuries-old game of love and death in contemporary L.A. in Boni B. Alvarez's Fixed, a Filipino-Latino telenovela come deliciously to life on the Atwater Village Echo Theater stage."

"...Heavy vernacular and high drama keep us guessing. Rodney To's direction is spotty with actors often finding their own way to all being on the same page at the same time."

Stage Raw - Somewhat Recommended

"...Fixed, as you can see, is an elaborately constructed melodrama with blocking motions to love on every side. There are many theatrical pleasures: the performance of the two principals; an initial competitive walk; the dressing-room maintenance of drag; the lyrical speech of Gigi and her workers Jenny and Carmie (Allen Lucky Weaver and Tonatiuh Elizarraraz, both splendid); the delayed, impressive entrance of Alvarez as Gigi; and in a coda, a very fine dance performance by Elizarraraz."

"...As the spotlight captures three fabulous drag queens at center stage, the music, reminiscent of the New York City LGBTQ community's underground ball scene, turns up and the House of Malacanang vogues down the walkway. The Echo Theater Company proves again that is truly the "Best Bet for Ballsy Original Plays" as LA Weekly stated in 2014 with its latest production directed by Rodney To, "Fixed.""

Los Angeles Post-Examiner - Recommended

"...But enough of the details, this is a show extremely well presented and most who see it will be deeply impressed. However I do caution that some people may find it offensive and it is definitely not for children, If you want to be exposed to very real element within the greater human experience do get over the Echo Theatre Company at the Atwater Village Theatre and get your imagination and curiosity fixed."
