“D’Amico never overplays David to the point of caricature, despite the difficulty of relaying the character’s illness…Caroline Aimetti’s charming radiance adds both humor and depth. This complicated interplay between palpable, human characters is what makes Hogan’s story such a success…Hogan’s play is a rare and crucial exploration of both the effects of Alzheimer’s and the complexity of humanity, a work that is certainly not to be missed.” Full Review
"The ensemble is well formed with a palpable team spirit...While at times repetitive and over-sustained, 'For Annie' is a successful foray into the world of domestic violence...The show well encapsulates the power and sensitivity of complex female characters. Above all, the playwright has created characters that can live, breathe, and communicate without pretense...With such pragmatic actresses under the direction of Emma Miller, 'For Annie' becomes a tale not to be missed."

“If you’re interested in the virtues of theatre as a collective experience, ‘Fiction Folk Event’ is too transcendent to miss. With an original story inspired by prevalent science-fiction archetypes, the event is an enlightened escape into a higher realm of consciousness...This show is perfect for children and adults alike! With a cast and creative team so collectively talented, ‘Fiction Folk Event’ becomes an hour of commitment to inspire a lifetime of thought.” Full Review
"Overall, the story is a delight for adults and children alike...Certain sections of the story seem to be drawn out longer than necessary, but it is worth it to see the imagery. It is not until very late in the piece that Iseri’s character speaks. He explains a darker part of the story that would have otherwise been extremely unclear…The toy theatre piece is a miniature reminder of the joy, trials, and winning attitude that, combined, make up New York City."

"With Abraham commanding the central role and Kulick consciously and straightforwardly guiding the helm, 'Nathan the Wise' becomes a must-see for the spring 2016 Season...Abraham's greatness, being so subtly innate, fails to cast shadow on his fellow players and instead reflects light onto them...Kulick seemed to bring his cast to a point of truthfulness that left little to focus on but the story, an ideal performance." Full Review
"The work couldn’t be a more relevant choice for the contemporary bureaucratic landscape…It’s rare to see an experimental work so well put together. The cast and creative team expertly navigated the fine line between chaos and structure…If this work is any indication, L’Atelier Théâtre Productions’ contribution to New York theatre is irreplaceable, potent, and unrestrained. Their future productions are to be eagerly awaited." Full Review
"Schulman, who wrote the original movie script, masterfully adapted the work for the stage. 'Dead Poets Society' makes an incredibly successful stage play, as the impassioned energy of the players is directly and vicariously felt by the audience. Additionally, the characters spend much time speaking about the merits of acting, presenting a wonderfully meta dichotomy...A work such as this that begs its audience to live and think freely is not only refreshing, but necessary." Full Review
for a previous production "Overall, the show was riveting; it was wonderfully impossible to relax from curtain to close...Director Bartlett Sher is to thank for the multitude of seamless transitions. To have multiple powerful people in a room at one time is extremely difficult...Sher and Rogers have achieved the high plateau of theatrical collaboration...'Oslo' is a must-see, a truly important and beautifully poignant political drama that stirs a deep inner justice our country can feel in its roots right now." Full Review
“Chris Miller’s composition in combination with lyrics by Nathan Tysen echoes the enchanted nature of the story, yet could have used more variety throughout the score...Overall, the musical is full of family-friendly magic, but the chief appeal is directed towards a younger audience. The beautiful dance sequence at the conclusion is certainly relatable for all ages, and is absolutely the redeeming scene of the show.” Full Review
