"'Almelem' features a small, but exceptional cast...The play is tautly directed by Jordana Williams...The best part of the show is ambiguity that runs through it. Is John the Baptist just a scam artist, or did he find his own personal salvation..The fact that I can still ponder these questions days after seeing the play, shows that Williams' well-crafted 'Almelem' has gotten under my skin...Entertaining, thought-provoking, and a delight to watch, 'Almelem' is not to be missed."

"50 Shades! is a smart, raucous party musical, with a cast which proves that New York is home to insanely funny group of talented actors who are able to sing well. It shows its improv-comedy roots; it is smart, sharp, doesn’t take itself too seriously, and knows when to wrap it up. The show zips by, with all cylinders firing at every moment." Full Review
for a previous production "It's always nice to see sci-fi wrested from movies and TV and brought back to the stage.

"Deftly and humorously written by J.B. Heaps, 'The Immortal Coil' shines a light on the theatre and the egos that inhabit, while also questioning the nature of art and life (and, I suppose, afterlife).

for a previous production "Rain Pryor has a fascinating story to tell...She is great with voices, giving each character a distinct and realistic personality and sound...I may not have known what to expect from "Fried Chicken and Latkes," but what I got was a very entertaining show, some terrific insight into Richard and Rain Pryor's lives, and a deep appreciation for just how talented Ms. Pryor is. I understand the show will be coming back in the fall, but as soon as it comes back, I suggest you get tickets." Full Review
for a previous production "An intriguing play within a play within a play that incorporates Warren and Brown's story, then transcends it... Although much of the play is humorous, director Michael Michetti keeps the production charged with a certain amount of menace and eroticism...A fascinating play, excellent cast and superior production values."
