"Timbers puts all these top-notch design elements into a single elegantly packaged whole and does the same with the cast's performances...Luhrmann managed to take a familiar story and lots of well-known, well-loved songs, finesse them together, and pump enough energy and fizz into the mix to create a new kind of musical and cinematic experience. 'Moulin Rouge!,' the stage musical, pulls the trick off all over again, with even more light and color." Full Review
for a previous production "'Albatross' offers us as much history as it does poetry, and as much earthy expression as transcendence of language…Evett’s performance is spellbinding, Rick Lombardo’s direction is dynamic and focused, and the finely attuned production design serves as a living argument for the poetic possibilities of the theatrical form."

for a previous production “The LAB ensemble and director Jason Slavick re-cast an ancient story in a way that feels immediate…It's a matter of personal taste, but the broadly overacted clowning of the first half struck me as forced. It's when the story takes a darker turn...that the play takes on dramatic substance. When the climactic scenes arrive, it's easy to find yourself gripped…This is a show with a heart, a mind, and red plastic noses all around.” Full Review
