Front Row Center

"Morrow’s ”kaleidoscope” metaphor aptly describes the psychic shifts of focus that brought us, sometimes quickly, to scenes of romance, violence, execution, confrontation, political intrigue, espionage, war zones, and towards an aspirant denouement." Full Review

Front Row Center

"...overall, we experienced a portentous sense of misfortune. As time passed, no satisfying or glorious dénouement seemed possible, and the closing scene evoked a horripilation." Full Review

"'Burbank' is fun, thought-provoking, and insightful as it examines Walt Disney’s perhaps unintentional societal contributions during an employee strike in wartime America." Full Review

"The 'Oratorio for Living Things' is a miraculous, thought-provoking celebration of hope, life, and the human spirit, ravishingly expressed through a brilliant fusion of music and theater." Full Review

Madama Butterfly
Upper W Side

"4.75/5 stars...While audiences love it, it’s not just about singing sustained high notes for dramatic effect; Puccini stretches time and develops a context that ultimately leads to climactic vocal utterances.

"The play is personal, touching, and thought-provoking. It’s all too human and plays on the side of hope, generosity, caring, and honoring the lives we possess. The audience gently, and audibly reacted to many moments created by the players. You’ll have to experience it to know how it all works out, but perhaps, 'Let not your heart be troubled…' (from the book of John 14:1-3)" Full Review

Intimate Apparel
Upper W Side
Front Row Center

"Intimate Apparel reveals and documents everyday working-class people’s plights, trials, and tribulations. What happens to the heroine Esther in this production is realistic and poignant. My wife, a product of a culturally diverse family, saw firsthand her mother’s life savings taken by her father to buy a beauty parlor for his paramour – leaving her mother and two daughters in severe financial peril. Shame is often why these incidents remain undocumented, and spouses are sometimes removed fr... Full Review
