"'The Place We Built' feels like an epic, life-changing indie documentary…It catches every little nuance about a modern grassroots political movement...We learn about some more than others, but even those characters that we learn very little about have a purpose for being there, a backstory for what brought them to this point in their life...The scenes set at a wild night at Seagull’s bar were some of the most well-directed scenes I have seen all year."

"'but i cd only whisper' is one of those stories that reaffirms your belief in new theatre pieces…It breaks your heart with its raw and brutal and well-crafted story. It is pointedly relevant to the world in which we live in today…Lighting, sound, and direction all come together to seamlessly portray the visual, aural, and emotional effects of trauma on a human soul…Toussaint Jeanlouis gives a phenomenal performance."

for a previous production "'Puffs' is one of your best bets for comedy in the new year...For someone 'in the Harry Potter know', 'Puffs' will charm your socks off, in equal amounts of gentle parody and true love for their subject. If you’re not in the know, some of the jokes may not make their landing, but the enjoyment of the audience and the pure enthusiasm of the performers will ease over any uncomfortable feelings."

"'Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom' is brutal, relentless, eerie, and thought-provoking. It’s anti-climactic…the ending is a foregone conclusion if you’re keeping track. Even if you’re keeping track of the recurring plot points and symbols that slowly tie all the pieces of the puzzle together, you can’t help but gape at the brutality and the horror before you as the scenes play out...It leaves the audience with more questions than answers, but in a good way."

"This historical play, with a dash of romance and a whole lot of heart, is charming and earnest to the core. Polner’s cleverly constructed script draws the audience into a story some might call dry and boring...surrounding this story of the founding of the federal reserve with an understated love story, more quips than can be found on 'Brooklyn 99,' and the inclusion of the beginnings of the progressive movement...The cast is made up of bold, brassy actors, perfectly suited to a period piece."

"More intimate for the viewer than anything else I’ve seen to date. The emotional impact of such intimate encounters cannot be overstated...Every moment, every touch, every story shared is deliberate and leaves you with something to meditate on...I would also be remiss in not noting the superb work by all performers...Overall, my trip was welcoming, seductive and enlightening. 'The Grand Paradise' is sexy, wistful and boisterous and I can’t wait to check in again." Full Review
"Whether you are a full participant in the performance or solely a voyeur of the maelstrom around you, you will have many intense feelings during and after the performance, period...There is no greater way to get your message across than to allow your audience to bring the meanings closer to the audience’s heart by immersing them directly in the performance of the piece. Come with an open mind. Come willing to participate." Full Review
"A fantastic, wonderful, kind of escape, 'The Hummingbird’s Tour' ultimately feels empty of any real emotional connections. The only real believable relationship between characters is that of the three siblings to their childhood nanny, which can be attested more to the chemistry between actors than anything else...It looks and sounds magnificent; the set alone makes you want to get up and explore the stage to find all of the little details that went into this creation."
