for a previous production "The early dialogue focuses so strongly on issues of race and class that it feels textbook. Saracho seems to be downloading all of her own observations about Hollywood rather than creating living, breathing characters...There’s charm and humor in Saracho’s writing...'Fade' could be deeper and better developed, but it does evoke fruitful thoughts about the lives unfolding in tandem with our own, the mysteries they hold and the miraculous moments when the veil lifts and we recognize each other."

for a previous production "Thaddeus Phillips's brilliant piece, '17 Border Crossings,' is a series of monologues based on his own extensive travels. Some of these stories last only a few seconds and some are longer; some are funny, others frightening or sad. They carry implications that go to the heart of what it means to be a human being living among other humans." Full Review
for a previous production "Director Mike Donahue has added to the writing deficiencies by having his actors use exaggerated Southern accents and adopt purely presentational performance styles...The drag numbers save the evening...As the show goes along, the drag elements gets glitzier, flashier and louder, obscuring the play's deficiencies — until you leave the theater and start thinking about the lost opportunities."
