“A masterpiece that is delightful, heartbreaking and poignant...The show in its current form is restructured to involve 4 more actors and does a marvelous job of telling the story...Aziz has done an incredible job with the book and the music. It is refreshing to hear a young voice full of passion and zest...Mukherjee’s direction is to the point and keeps the actors moving keeping the energy up at all times...I left the performance feeling moved, inspired and in awe of the story and the show.” Full Review
“A play unlike any other...There are no rehearsals and there is a new guest star for every performance...There is a sealed envelope and playwright uses the power of language to unite us...A life changing experience. It was a journey that the entire audience took...The play was entertaining, engaging, and inspiring...In the midst of tragic events happening in the world, ‘Nassim’ manages to tackle some serious issues...’Nassim’ works because of the playwright’s genuine and candid voice."

“While ‘The Chinese Lady’ deals with the tragic aftermath of Chinese Exclusion Act, it is also humorous, clever and entertaining, which is the victory of the play...I was so invested in Atong and Afong Moy’s journey that I was left wanting to hear more about their lives...Both Tyo and Isaac are amazing...They steal your heart with their innocence and portrayal of two extraordinary human beings...The writing is engaging. Peña’s direction is superb." Full Review
“Touches the issues of hate crime and terrorism in an entertaining and fun manner...The music and choreography were lively and fun. The writing is humorous, witty and reflects the happy-go-lucky attitude of Punjabis. All the actors were strong in inhabiting their characters with a lot of humor...An ambitious play with a lot of potential, albeit not as impactful, in its current version. There is too much going on in the play,..An entertaining and important play." Full Review
“’Awake’ is a series of monologues and short scenes about the most relevant issues of our time...Manning is not giving any solutions he is just showcasing life and how these issues that otherwise seem like big words; impact our day to day lives...Each cast member brings nuances to their character that is pivotal in forwarding the story...’Awake’ does feel a bit long." Full Review
"It takes a lot of courage to take one’s personal agony and transform it into something meaningful, something with the potential to educate and impact the youth. Mr. Gorman gets full points for doing this and taking on a task that is much needed in the current times...While it is clear whose story we are following, we never truly connect and empathize with Robby or anyone else. There are too many jewels and it is hard for any one to shine." Full Review
"Trip Cullman’s direction stands out, especially during the quick paced transitions...The cast is stellar and the characters are well drawn out...If you don’t have great leadership and a clarity of purpose, most rebellions at best become a voice for insecurities and desperate desire for attention and at worst land up being misguided escapades. This to me is the message of 'Days of Rage.' And it is delivered with such gusto and force that you are left asking for more." Full Review
