for a previous production "The show consists of Sands standing alone onstage telling us what he knew and loved about his friend, occasionally quoting from a letter or a poem. There is no drama, conflict, or character arc...Though Sands’ performance appears straightforward, it’s actually a quite subtle one, filled with pauses that comically recall the ones used by Pinter in his plays. Both devotees of Pinter and his work and those simply looking for an entertaining 90 minutes of theater will find much to enjoy." Full Review
for a previous production "They don't just take their audience to hell; they put them through it...A ticket is a contract between a patron and the creative team of a play or musical promising good money for at least the attempt at presenting a good show. Those in charge of 'Hell's Belles' should be punished for breaking that contract. I can suggest where they should be sent." Full Review
for a previous production "This hourlong musical delivers bushels of laughs, a genuine emotional kick, and a clever dramatization of why history matters to all of us...A show that really does appeal to all ages, whether you're related to a cast member or not…Trevens' book is fast-paced and informative without being condescending or politically correct. Rockwell's traditional musical theater score smartly avoids the pitfalls of faux rap and ersatz rock." Full Review
