Out of My Comfort Zone was scheduled to return to the UK for a third time in May 2020 with TheatreTrain when the shows had to be cancelled due to the pandemic.
Following sold-out performances in March 2018 at The Redbridge Drama Centre, Out of My Comfort Zone returned to London in October 2018, to The Redbridge Drama Centre, and to King William's College on the Isle of Man, UK.
In addition to being featured on the front page of Playbill.com during Pride Month, The Huffington Post praised the show, calling it, "A singing, dancing powerhouse punctuated by dialogue that feels true and real. The songs are completely infectious and fun, ranging in genre from rock and roll to hip hop."
TheaterScene.net said, “With an empathic message, fun soundtrack, and an enthusiastic cast, Out of My Comfort Zone hopes to further a worldwide social cause."
Theater Development Fund noted that, "People like avoiding conflict. They don't want to stand out too much, so they play it safe. Out of My Comfort Zone challenges this concept, promoting self-confidence and loving unashamedly."
“We were driven to write Out of My Comfort Zone as a way of making a strong statement against bullying, specifically bullying that targets any child or teen who may be perceived as gay or identify as LGBTQ,” states Ivy Vale, playwright. “There is clearly a need for reality-based material for teens who want to see shows that reflect their own lives and deliver characters they can relate to.”
Due to the pandemic, no live performances are currently scheduled.
