for a previous production "There is much to admire in 'God Said This,' beginning with the credible and often moving scenes between Masako and James...But there are issues. The daughters are both fairly one-dimensional and frankly unappealing characters, and their dialogue feels more trite than that of the parents...There's not quite enough material here to cover its two acts and some story elements felt a bit like padding."

for a previous production "It was rather like a drunken, coked-up frat party where you, as an audience member, are the only sober person. Many of the college kids in the audience apparently found it hilarious. The adults looked bored. Some of them walked out...At around 80 minutes with no intermission, 'The Glory of the World' is far too long, given the paucity of its ideas...This looks like an exhausting and exhilarating piece to perform, and they deserve applause for the quality of their work."

for a previous production “In what feels like the strongest of the play's three scenes, the siblings ruminate on death, the afterlife, and what it means to really be an adult...The remaining two scenes are less impressive…Chalfant leads a strong cast as a sympathetic and engaging Ann…Les Waters directs with a sure eye for both the comedy and drama in the script, but even so ‘For Peter Pan’ is a bit too specifically autobiographical for its own good. It feels less like a play for a general audience than a home video.” Full Review
for a previous production "Compelling idea-rich drama...His characters are so well drawn and his refusal to take sides is so scrupulous that those exchanges crackle with energy and passion...To say that 'The Christians' is thought provoking is to praise it inadequately. The philosophical and spiritual questions raised by this meticulously written and dramatically gripping play generated lively discussions among our party. It was one of the best plays I've seen anywhere in recent years." Full Review
