VSG gave Orwell In America a 88
See it if You are interested in an exploration of human complexity - ideals vs. character, like plays dealing with political ideologies still relevant

Jodi 13 gave Yokes Night a 70
See it if You want to see a bare staged frenetically paced two-person drama. Themes of drug use, seduction and violence. Narrative story telling.

Jacqueline Parker gave Inner Voices 2016 a 86
See it if The idea of mini-operas is appealing, a complete story told in 45 minutes in intriguing, if you want to see compelling talent at its best.

VS 13 gave All the Ways to Say I Love You a 68
See it if you want to see Judith Light give a riveting performance; you are an extreme fan of solo shows
