"The ensemble clearly shares a resonant vocabulary, but the central question or driving force seems to have been muddied along the way. One is left with more questions than answers...The staging is smart and clean, leaning into focused specificity and a sophisticated conversation with kinesthetic response. This show is worth a conversation with The Associates. The work is rigorous, and it would be a delight to see even more risk; they certainly have the chops for it." Full Review
"The production could grow into something poignant and engaging, if it concentrates less on theory and more on story...Director Andrew Borthwick-Leslie helms an incredibly talented team of performers...He makes bold choices, though there is an element of safety to the spacial relationships. The text begs for action. Choices seem to stem from fear of intimacy fruiting in the same universe as sexual violence. Take a chance on these artists, they are headed in an exciting direction."

"The specificity to which every element of 'Typhoid Mary' is addressed is exciting, but ultimately gets lost in a confusion of circumstances...Essentially a one-man show supported by an ensemble, 'Typhoid Mary' is spent with two core stories, both of which beg to occupy more space than they are given...Ultimately, the tale unfolding on stage is at odds with the style of the production, which was painstakingly crafted and adhered to."
