for a previous production "At times one wonders how much Rapp is using Bernadette as a mouthpiece to demonstrate his own voracious literary appetite. Yet Carolyn Molloy's performance as Bernadette and Jacqueline Stone's direction hone Rapp's story like a two-sided blade. One side makes cutting observations of how people fail each other, and the other slices through that scrim of despair to show the weak light of renewal through the act of telling stories."

for a previous production "Shenoy's play gets a mostly sure-footed staging under Ahmed's direction, and it's refreshing that the ethnic differences aren't foregrounded as the source of conflict...A familiar romp through the growing pains of newlyweds. But even though there are some undeniably shaggy components to Shenoy's comedy, it largely succeeds on its own sunny terms...Some gags get stuck in the lint trap, but 'Washer' provides a pleasant snapshot of a couple learning to overcome territorial static."

for a previous production "Some of the threads that Quijada introduces don’t play out with satisfying conclusions…One wishes he did more to address the dichotomy between ‘the loop in my head’ that tells him ‘don’t forget where you came from’ and the fact that he doesn’t reveal a lot about his larger family history...Ultimately, though, what comes through clearly is that Quijada has forged his own bridge as a storyteller...With verbal dexterity and warmhearted charm, Quijada shows us that the journey can get better."
