The Blue Room
West Village
Urban Matter

"This striking production captures the audience by close proximity and creative scene development. Controversial in both its subject matter and general rowdiness, 'The Blue Room' will keep you watching the actors on the stage and not your phone! Performances by actors Christina Toth and Max Hunter do much by way of captivating that attention...Standout performances by both lead actors, brilliantly executed sets and costumes, and a thinkpiece of a story."

The Constitution
East Village
Urban Matter

"A very intriguing stage play that explores the formation of a constitution by four passionate individuals...The work from the four actors brings a fascinating and thought-provoking concept to life...The standout performance was that of Maria Leite. She is so fiery in her presentation of the character, you can almost feel the anger running through her veins. It’s captivating. If you’re in the mood for a short piece of engaging theatre, we would definitely recommend this performance." Full Review

Midtown W
W42st Magazine

"The story is beautifully created...The choreography recreates the magic of old Hollywood musicals. The style mirrors Cagney's and is astounding to watch...Robert Creighton as Cagney is unbelievable. There's not a moment in the production where you're not enthralled by his performance. He's mesmerizing and you truly believe you are watching James Cagney perform in front of you." Full Review

In a Little Room
East Village
Urban Matter

"Its hilarious take on what can only be described as one of life’s hardest experiences is not to be missed...The play itself is both clever and witty, serving up laughs from the audience throughout its run. But be warned, 'In a Little Room' will certainly pull at your heartstrings as well...Overall, the play is captivating and presents a truly entertaining piece of theatre...Was I thoroughly entertained? Yes. Have I been thinking about the show since seeing it? Definitely." Full Review

Trump Lear
East Village
Urban Matter

for a previous production "'Trump Lear' is definitely something that will make you laugh, but if you’re looking for it to take your mind off the state of the Administration, it won’t...It is both an interesting take on a Shakespeare classic and a comical perspective on our current political atmosphere...This isn’t a groundbreaking performance, but it’s one that most will enjoy...If you want to see a show for entertainment’s sake, then consider taking yourself down to Under St Marks to see 'Trump Lear.'"
