"Experimental theatre can be a barrage of whacky, fun, nonsensical and in-your-face storytelling. 'The Pill' has all these elements wrapped into one...Leni played by Zoe Wilson is one to watch...The minimal white sets are used as a backdrop for video footage to convey emotion, humor, and push the narrative. And, it works. The dynamic between these zany characters is rich and often comes together with witty dialogue and sometimes song." Full Review
"Unapologetic, of-the-moment, matured and funny...Leguizamo delivers his signature brand of humor, self-deprecation with a newfound responsibility to bring political awareness to the mistreatment of Latino immigrants by the current administration...Definitely worth seeing. Middle-age certainly hasn’t slowed Leguizamo down, and his fans will not be disappointed." Full Review
"A dynamic immersive production...Lighting and sound effects play pivotal characters in this play in their own right, illustrating sequence of time, drama and a seamless segue between stories with masterful execution...The production taps into a hybrid of cultural themes: Arab storytelling techniques with Western theatrical practices in a way that illuminates the strengths and similarities of both performance traditions. I recommend catching this limited engagement." Full Review
"'Elf the Musical' is your answer to reveling and rediscovering the Christmas spirit for you and your loved ones...Original songs will fill you with the Christmas spirit and have you humming the songs long after the show is over...Gratton's portrayal of the lovable elf captures an innocence and goofiness that is endearing, with the supporting cast rising to the occasion as well...New and old fans of the classic holiday story will enjoy this musical adaptation." Full Review
"An inspiring rendition...The play briefly covers the romance that ensues between Rosalind and Orlando. Had there been more scenes showing the growing affection for one another, the characters’ chemistry might have appeared stronger. The songs and lyrics were standouts in this work...This adaptation succeeded in bringing Shakespeare’s play about conflict, drama, hope, and life’s inevitable adversities, to life on stage."

"You’ll be mesmerized by extraordinary special effects and exemplary choreographed dance moves in a constant frenzied pace...The narrative does not clearly emerge and dialogue is practically non-existent in the show; yet you still follow the story through interpretative dance. And that in itself is an experience – with waves of techno beats, classical music, Argentinean Tango and sultry R&B songs stimulating your senses. This mish-mosh of musical genres blend well."
