for a previous production "'The God Projekt’ is dense with intellectual and spiritual explorations…There are some stand-out moments of pure unadulterated theater magic. This is perhaps the finest showcase for Kevin's remarkable range and ability as an actor that I've ever seen: he rails like Lear and spars like a Borscht Belt comedian…He's a brave man, and ‘The God Projekt’ is a brave show."

for a previous production "An absolutely delightful romantic comedy. Until it becomes the must-see feel-good movie of some future summer (as it deserves to be), let 'Love Me' be your must-see feel-good play." Full Review

New York Theater

for a previous production "Genuinely sweet, heart-warming, and heart-filling hour of theatre...'Seven in One Blow' never feels like medicine, not for a second. It's played out in the same eccentric, vaguely avant-garde, lightly multimedia, deeply humanist style that characterizes all of Axis's work...The show is filled with music, physical comedy, pop culture and music allusions for the grown-ups, and talking- and singing-along for the youngsters...Axis Company ensemble members play their various roles to the hilt."

for a previous production "Penny Jackson's new play 'I Know What Boys Want' is concise, dense, harrowing, and as timely and topical as whatever is trending on Bing or Twitter or Google right now...Jackson is a skilled dramatist, so this play never feels polemical or exploitative; she uses the intimacy and freedom that the indie theater ethos provides to deal frankly and incisively with these subjects that so concern her...The staging is economical, spare, and very involving...The cast is uniformly excellent."

for a previous production "Stuart's writing is rich and vivid, and thus the piece is highly effective at what it sets out to accomplish. His portrayal of West is compelling, a portrait of cool detachment. Expert voice work by Amanda Byron and Robert Sherrane, as all of the offstage callers, fills out the play masterfully...Perhaps more than anything else, this play reminds us of the power of storytelling to provoke, engage, and jolt."

for a previous production "It left me cold, and I've been trying to figure out the reason. I've come up with a few possibilities. First and probably foremost, the play itself IS cold. At least in Jan Maxwell's characterization, Galactia is an oddly passionless artist...And the performances here are wildly uneven. Maxwell still seemed to be struggling with some of her lines, and as noted shows little of the complexity that I imagine Galactia must possess." Full Review
