"At times, 'Lunt and Fontanne' feels more like reading an autobiography than seeing a play, but overall the show is appealing and humorous. And Murphy and Lang certainly have undeniable chemistry, perhaps because they are a real life husband-wife acting duo, just like their characters. 'Lunt and Fontanne: The Celestials of Broadway' certainly shines and brightens the stars of a past era in Broadway history." Full Review
"Never before did I think facing all the worst parts of our society could be so fun…With no set and minimal props, Welch breathes real life into every character...Welch brings a powerhouse performance as he becomes five incredibly distinct people...Each character is immediately recognizable…Uproarious laughter is clearly the goal here (a goal often realized the night I saw the show.) Somehow, this commentary on life is both outrageous and thought-provoking." Full Review
"This new play perfectly captures the common struggles of a college-aged woman…The writing is witty and clever…If at times the main plot becomes a bit unclear, Gelfman's commentary regarding the absurdity of hook-up culture and many young people’s fear of love is smart and refreshing. All four female actresses bring stellar performances to the stage as they balance moments of serious focus with sidesplitting comedy...A hilarious look at the values of friendship." Full Review
"Soulful, expressive music combined with dramatic narration to depict a tragic love triangle…The lack of dialogue leaves something to be desired—possibly because the plot has the potential to shine as something more than just narration. I look forward to one day seeing a fully realized production…The band's infectious energy makes it hard to avoid swaying, clapping along, and tapping one's toes. 'Red Devil Moon' ultimately provides an entertaining experience." Full Review
“Some of the topics are hard to swallow and other topics are hilarious, but the entire show has a powerful message...At almost three hours, the show is on the long side...Certainly provides a new perspective to the unspoken heroines of the Bible...Shines a spotlight on the power and strength of women. The twelve diverse and dynamic actresses on stage bring life to tales that are often forgotten or shoved away." Full Review
