"The stakes didn't seem high at all to begin with, making Bulgakov's change of heart devoid of value. The turning point happens all to quickly, leaving us little to no time to feel his anguish. From that point on, both his physical and economical situation improve and so does that of those he loves...An entertaining play that balances wit and criticism as it gives us a privileged seat to the revelation of how principled a dissident voice can really be."

"'Pylade' could surely profit from a translation that allows for a bigger contrast between the scenes, or, in other words, that is not so stiff sounding...The ensemble, although a talented and colorful one, seems to be unevenly explored...A beautiful and stark example of theatre done in dialogue with those who came before us, who were aware of their zeitgeist and not afraid to get dirty, messy and raw towards a complex goal beyond entertainment: awakening." Full Review
"Although the moment of revelation is powerful and although it raises the dramatic tension even more between the two characters, it seems out of tone within the context of the play. The humor, and here is the only moment where I questioned the taste, is the way used to bring us back into the tug-of-war between both women. Nonetheless, this piece presents victories worthy of applause. " Full Review
for a previous production "'Tía Julia y El Escribidor' comes across as a well built and well performed play that reminds us about our passions, our faults as humans and the possibilities life opens up to us when we give it a chance. Definitely a show for those looking for a breath of fresh theatrical and poetic air." Full Review
"These powerful performers understand the value of detailed, fearless acting...If it's the carefully woven fabric of voices and stories that makes this a punch-strong show or if it is the fact that it is delivered carefully through equally powerful moments of comedy, completely earned lyricism and precise timing—applause here again to Lindow—that makes 'Key Change' a much needed piece of theatre, it doesn't really matter. What matters is that this exists...A must-see play." Full Review
for a previous production "'The Golden Bride' serves musical quality, aesthetic potency and a thoroughly entertaining evening for those that appreciate music, history and the broadening of minds." Full Review
"A tender yet powerful telling of a life lived between God, troglodytes and the search for (self)love...'Kick' invites the audience to share and learn from Bernie's pain and hope, and then to take a stand to change a culture that has been lingering on for far too long. Kick is a show that deserves our attendance and attentive ears, and should be brought to life in other stages besides just this one." Full Review
"What could be a powerful play with a meaty plot has its strength and contemporaneity washed away by lecture-like dialogues and a politically correct language...All in all, it’s an ambitious play that consistently misses its opportunities for grand theatrical moments, for awakening empathy, for raising awareness, and for questioning of our contemporary gender and identity politics."
