"The artistic choice of addressing the audience in this manner brings home Toscanini’s temperament, but felt unpleasant, which admittedly, may have been the point...The best part of 'Maestro' is the music. Each selected piece is brilliantly performed...Perhaps choosing to convey a man’s life mainly through his frustrated love letters diminishes the scope of a man, especially a man such as Arturo Toscanini. However, the music of 'Maestro,' is another story altogether." Full Review
“There was potential for this play, but sadly, the writing misses the mark. The basic outline of the characters was there, but they weren’t adequately fleshed-out. It is unfortunate because the actors each turned in admirable performances. In the end, no character is better off than they were at the start. And while that may be realistic, it falls short in a production when the themes aren’t clear. While 'The Property' doesn’t consistently entertain, it doesn’t educate or explain itself either."

"The play is entertaining to its core, and while it would be great for moms, future moms, pregnant women, girlfriends, it is funny enough to please a general audience...Birth is miraculous, and this show is a wonderful reminder of the astounding capabilities of the human body, as well as the ingenuity of the human mind. 'Bump' is fresh and funny—at times ‘laugh out loud’ funny...It is well worth seeing, and Chiara Atik is one to put on your radar." Full Review
"This musical is ambitious, especially for 90 minutes, and does an excellent job of keeping the storyline clear...If you are looking for one central show-stopping musical number, this show doesn’t deliver that as much as it has lyrical high points...What this musical may lack in lasting, highly-memorable songs, it more than makes up for in its storytelling and stellar acting performances—in my opinion, Heller’s performance is the standout."

“In ‘A Lovely Sunday For Creve Coeur,’ La Femme Theatre Productions’ all-female cast hands in excellent performances. This lesser-known work of Tennessee Williams serves as a welcome reminder of his skill as a playwright. Lichty’s accent takes a bit of time to understand and there is one scene that is ultimately too difficult to decipher. That aside, the performances on the whole are engaging and the play lingers in the mind long after the telling.” Full Review
"Erin Murray Quinlan in the star role as Pam is so likeable you just want to stick around after the performance and tag along for an after-show snack...This show is just plain FUN. There is no hidden message or agenda, just pure escapism and entertainment. The story is well-told and the characters are likeable and entertaining...The show is laugh-out-loud funny in many scenes." Full Review
"The story itself whets one’s appetite. The setting of the play—brilliantly housed in a Church that is also a Theater, suits the story perfectly...Wonderful cast...The sisters and the other diners have been given a gift. This production leaves the viewer richer as well, and reminds us to graciously accept the gifts of others, for the acceptance of a gift freely given, elevates both the giver and receiver."

"To say this is just juggling is to underestimate the art, creativity, and humor of the performance...Fresh and hip–electro-pop music plays in the background and pairs nicely with the on-stage action...Sometimes things fall, but they fall with intention, and this adds to the group’s trademark quality: their humor...Each time you think you’ve 'seen it all,' something new and unexpected happens...It will leave you mesmerized. Plastic Boom amazes in their creativity, athleticism, and synchronicity. Full Review
