"Feiffer’s feminist brilliance takes center stage. Beyond the playwright-actor’s own star turn and uncomfortably familiar characterization, she has written a compelling counterpoint...Under masterful direction by Cullman, Cat’s hesitation and Guy’s aggression blend into captivating chemistry...The upsetting ubiquity and familiarity of the plot make the piece stunningly relevant...Both cathartic and heart-wrenching...A fresh and uncomfortable examination of love, loss and illness.” Full Review
“’We Are The Tigers’ sparkles and shines, and also offers a glimpse into the ugly inner turmoil tantamount in high school...Yet the tropes applied to each character never go below the surface...’We Are The Tigers’ is ripe with teenage tropes: slut shaming, manipulation, peer pressure — as well as a healthy dose of Gen Z and millennial jokes, but only a few are compelling enough to stick. We never get to see the squad bond or affirm one another: instead, they bristle and spat. And stab.” Full Review
"For seemingly no other reason than to push the millennial interest in current affairs and to honestly sell the audience on the fact that the play is, in fact, about millennials, the discussion burns through several controversial issues without pause. The plot points shape the characters and provide them with well-worn viewpoints, rather than fleshing out authentic, multidimensional people...The fragmented arguments make for an uncomfortable, drawn-out series of interactions."
