“A quick-moving, quick-witted comedy…Individually and as a comprehensive cast, the eight actors are rock solid…Though Pailet’s melodies may not be stuck in your head when you walk out of the theater, they are impressively diverse in style to fit the various scenes during which they occur. The laugh-out-loud lyrics by Penedo certainly will rattle around your brain long after the final bow...‘Baghdaddy’ is compelling, clever and based on a true story." Full Review
"Kuritsky does a wonderful job portraying Erika’s transformation from detached, factual journalist to emotionally involved storyteller...'Stet' presents audiences with a myriad of moral questions throughout its hour-and-forty-minute run time, which flies by due to the snappy script and smooth staging by director Tony Speciale. The supporting cast of characters really shine as well." Full Review
"Director Blain-Cruz keeps Hnath’s script moving quickly, though the snappy, rapid-fire dialogue sometimes seems forced...The script really soars when each character has a longer chance to speak—granting the audience a look inside their psyches...Hnath’s writing leaves no clear protagonist and offers no ethical calls throughout the production. Rather, he leaves the audience to ponder that all-too-gray area between right and wrong, good and bad." Full Review
"Part musical, part stand-up comedy, (very small) part magic act, and part intriguing night in a complete stranger’s living room, 'My Name Is Gideon: I’m Probably Going to Die, Eventually' is far from a one-trick pony...Irving holds the audience captive with his unique and magnetic personality, weaving seemingly unrelated tales into a singular work that makes the audience feel connected to and intrigued by Irving’s life." Full Review
"Compelling characters and complex questions about crime and punishment are at the heart of playwright Lopez’s latest play...Turner’s skilled direction keeps the action moving swiftly and clearly...'Natural Life' is thought-provoking and commanding. The subject matter is timely, and fans of recent pop-culture phenomena such as 'Making a Murderer', 'Serial' and 'The Newsroom' are likely to be riveted by this exploration of the justice system, the prison system, guilt and the media." Full Review
"With perfectly-timed jokes, hilarious physical comedy and a laugh-out loud funny script—'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus Live!' is raucous in its relatability...Story needs no lights, no set and no soaring orchestrations to have everyone in the audience nodding in understanding, clapping in collusion and laughing along with his illuminating realizations about relationships."
