"This often spellbinding and emotional HUNGER THEATER production showcased a surprisingly phenomenal cast of talented actors, including experienced and novice talent of all ages...An enormously entertaining and a most provocative production. What began as a mere spark in the dark concluded with a glistening tear of truth. I left feeling that within ourselves, we grasp the power of the conclusive verdict of a controversial subject."

for a previous production “It is challenging for an actor to breathe credible life into...an average individual. Accomplishing this in a period piece with a little Shakespearean dialogue...is a lofty endeavor for any thespian. This cast rose to the occasion...While there is humor peppered throughout, this is a dark and heavy play...Between Wimpee’s script...coupled with the exceptional acting, it felt as if we were transported to the 1800’s and witnessing the brothers Booth and the tormented ghost of their father.” Full Review
"This musical gives a glimpse of life in the Caribbean, and it allows the use of imagination where all of our dreams can come to fruition. The audience gets the opportunity to go beyond its boundary, and it creates another world to explore in terms of culture. The writer’s message resonates with the audience in the portrayal of culture, geography, and zoology. In addition, he addresses the emotional side of life where some children refuses to grow up."

"I will surely recommend others to see this play because it will take you out of the American landscape, and allow the audience to get a glimpse as to how other people live in other parts of the world...because there are lessons to be learned and insight to gained by many baby boomers in our society...The audience was able to see the importance of the human interaction."

"The play itself at times, can be brooding and uneasy. The goings-on can at times be sensual, even affectionate. But what brings a contemporaneous warmth to the play’s otherwise Cold War chill is the director himself and his precise direction to his ensemble casts deep appreciation for the personal poetics of individual power during times of political paranoia, hatred and deep contentment for those with opposing views. Very relevantly contemporary.” Full Review
"'Dead Brains' leaves a mark on you from the onset: its unique name, its compelling performances; its razor-sharp direction; and surely, it’s psycho-drama...The cast of three were both a tight ensemble and group of stars. The chemistry between the actors...was chilling and remarkable...Champney wrote about an artist wanting to create a masterpiece. I guess it was Champney who actually did that. This show is absolutely a work of art." Full Review
"This play takes the audience into the realities of life in America in its reflection of the African-American experience of the Johnson family...I recommend theatregoers to see this play before the festival ends. It will help to change the minds of those people who fuss unnecessarily while they have everything going good for them in their lives." Full Review
