“I’ve always felt I’ve lived a charmed life,” Lori Brown Mirabal says a couple of times in the play, though she never really embellishes on what’s made it so. Still, you can’t fault her for her positivity, and it’s extra-admirable considering her profession is the one that gave us the term “prima donna.” Full Review
"It's a script that could charitably be called overambitious; less charitably, pretentious. In stuffing in so many digressions and name-drops, the monologue loses focus…Muñoz is an asset to this production. He has an affable presence, and his heart is clearly in the role." Full Review
"'Paris' is an honest portrayal of people who need every dollar they earn. Or it's a sly commentary on how race figures into a seemingly nonracist environment. Or it's just a well-performed and engaging workplace dramedy. However it's viewed, this sharply written, superbly acted new play provides theatergoers with a jolt from winter doldrums. Full Review
"Cariou has at least some audience members in tears by the time Harry walks out that lake house door for the last time. If only the playwright, George Eastman, had more gracefully shaped the crisis that brings him to that point. Instead, he loaded the first act with too much exposition." Full Review
"The story's cinematic nature works against it on stage...'Sideways' has such a strong sense of place-the movie fueled a tourism boom for California's Santa Ynez Valley-that it's shortchanged by many scenes looking similar." Full Review
"The first new play by William Mastrosimone to premiere in New York in some time, this 90-minute, three-character piece is a head-scratcher: Whatever points it makes get muddled by ambiguous character development, a far-fetched setup and one long scene that gives new meaning to 'toxic masculinity.'"

"It has a little of Pixar's 'Inside Out' (emotions as characters) and a little of Broadway's 'Disaster!' (musical-theater fan favorites doing campy material) plus the exuberantly performed up-tempo numbers of a theme-park revue and the over-the-top costumes of a drag ball." Full Review
"This massive misfire tells three different stories, with barely a sentence of realistic-sounding dialogue among them. The only thing that makes One November Yankee tolerable-but only slightly, because the material is that dreadful-is the presence of Harry Hamlin and Stefanie Powers." Full Review
for a previous production "This could have been a very different kind of production, one lacking the dramatic momentum and vivid characterizations that Satter and her cast give it. It's unrecognizable as documentary-based theater if you associate that genre with a static staging." Full Review
