"Nikbakht is nothing short of breathtaking...'Walls' is a passionate treatise from a young playwright with enormous potential...Overwhelmingly however, the play’s use of anaphoric repetition grows tiring, and Awad’s ambitious project of counterpoising her personal history with a comprehensive account of modern Palestine results in a halting work that veers into reductive territory. Yet Awad’s play makes no apologies for being polemic and subjective...'Walls' intends to make ripples." Full Review
"What LaVercombe lacks in musical technique, he more than compensates for with boyish charm, impeccable timing and aching vulnerability. Moreover, his writing is taut, funny, and shrewd...Ultimately, ‘Love Me Forever’s’ rocketing pace also proves its own worst enemy; minimal action and narrative progression make this solo show feel stretched even at an hour...Yet this does not detract from a show that is otherwise probing, sincere, and highly entertaining."

“For the most part, Spano’s play is graceful in its simplicity: expressive but succinct, riffing without being trite, political without devolving into didacticism. This is a playwright with deep empathy for his characters...Of course, ‘Joey’ is necessarily hampered by some tired tropes around addiction, psychology, and the cutthroat world of ballet...Yet in certain breathtaking moments ‘Joey’ truly soars.” Full Review
for a previous production "This chronological autobiography is interspersed with King’s stand-up routines at various venues on the 1980s New York circuit. King has clearly developed his set over the decades; these segments got the loudest guffaws of the night...Ultimately, the show's regressive gendered and racial views struck me as problematic, with several cringingly offensive moments. However what comes across throughout is King’s profound and sincere love for his father." Full Review
