for a previous production "'The Girl who Jumped' has the bones of a great show about hopes, dreams, and the dark side to our fascination with celebrity culture. Hartstone is a talented actor...but you can’t really connect with Edwards. She, like a female protagonist in a ‘40s musical, is too innocent and naïve before turning very quickly down a path that isn’t so innocent. This naiveté works in old musicals but just doesn’t quite connect in a contemporary play about an industry that can be heartlessly cruel." Full Review
for a previous production "Lvova is powerful as Rehana in a gruelling and physical role. Lvova stumbles over a few lines, and doesn’t quite nail the climax, but she storms around the stage with captivating intensity while effectively telling the tale and delivering occasional lines of humor...It is a brutal assessment of the lengths sometimes needed to combat evil, where even the most well-intentioned pacifist must abandon their humanity to fight and protect for what’s right. It’s powerful stuff." Full Review
