for a previous production "The storyline shifts backward and forward in time and from place to place. The effect is one of a tale that’s at once rooted in particulars but universal, and that strategy draws us in...Gripping from beginning to end and with themes of family, alienation and love stitching it together, it would be impossible not to see something of yourself in the tale...It gives hope, which we need these days and which The Wanderer, despite his jaded side, would doubtless applaud."

Ottawa Citizen

for a previous production “A funny, insightful and mostly autobiographical show…Elie traverses dating, sex, marriage, and parenthood while searching for her own identity. Such topics are hardly original, but in Elie’s forthright hands, they are fresh and invigorating, giving us new perspectives on common experiences. Elie is especially skilled at setting you up with a warm smile and an 'awwww'-inducing story only to yank the carpet from under you.” Full Review

Ottawa Citizen

for a previous production "Robert Lepage’s extraordinary solo play '887' prompts such tantalizing, ultimately unanswerable questions. Autobiographically rooted, it peers into Lepage’s past. It explores what it means to be Québécois. It ponders the significance of theatre. It blends digital technology with children’s toys with some very funny lines. And all the while, '887' is as welcoming and resonant as Lepage’s voice itself." Full Review
