"It is a classic comedy of mistaken identity, love at first sight, and, well, absolute fluff...It’s a lot to remember, but thankfully the witty maid Lisette helps keep everyone in line...Still, with all these plots, the comedic timing and special moments in the play occasionally feel a little lost...Ives’s translation and adaptation is smart, amusing, perfectly silly, and completely conveys the whimsical world of the play...Despite a few missed moments, 'The Metromaniacs' is enchanting."

"It is a satisfying experience to listen to the wordplay, and link scenes, sentences and phrases together to understand the story...Director Tyne Rafaeli has kept the transitions tight, and the result makes the show easier to watch...All three leads create complex relationships within the short time frame...Although the actors take a minute to settle into the world of the play, once they are there, 'In a Word' is an engaging and quirky piece of theater, and definitely worth seeing."

"The choice to have three actors play all the characters becomes in practice chaotic. Any viewer who is unfamiliar with 'Macbeth' will probably have no idea what is going on...Mitler’s pacing of the performance is also disjointed...Each scene moves slowly and at the same speed as before, losing the attention of the audience and the energy of the play...By the end of the performance, it feels like a miracle to be let out of the hot and stuffy theater container to breathe fresh air."

"A story of loss, pain and grief with an unspoken complexity...'Poison' explores grief and the different ways people process tragic loss, emphasizing the importance of communication...Though this couple dances around the pain, it is in the moments of silence, the irrational outbursts, and inside the empty spaces that the audience is let in and allowed to see how deeply challenging and complex it is to be human."
