for a previous production "'In & Of Itself' leaves you just kind of expecting more...There’s a fair bit of literal and symbolic misdirection as well, of extended buildups that don’t seem to lead anywhere or pay off...All told, there are some half-dozen illusions that, while impressive, don’t withstand the-walk-to-the-car scrutiny...For an experience billed as both magic show and night of revelation, it comes up a little short on either end."

for a previous production "Reasonably well-acted and seasoned with some light hijinks, the show hovers at sitcom-level contrivances and shallow character development, rarely rising above its exhausted stereotypes…The show aspires to be a kind of 'Barefoot in the Park' for the 21st century, but the funny bits try too hard and ring hollow…The emotional heft here is no more substantial than one of Sonya’s wedding saris, bright and flimsy."

for a previous production "'Broken Bone Bathtub' is what’s becoming known as an immersive theater experience...O’Loughlin wasn’t just aiming for novelty with 'Broken Bone,' though she admits that was part of its appeal...The vibe is relaxed if a little uncertain...As intended, unscripted moments lent this show its own comic flavor."
