"A play which is true the the vision and mission of the company. Stories reflect a diverse population the working majority, acknowledging their complexity...by creating theater of interest to working people...Ackerman brings the realities of unscrupulous authorities in the work place to our attention in a mode that approaches theater of the absurd...Be prepared to chuckle, but the message here is one which resonates beyond the 'set.'"

"A compelling and meaningful staging of 'Awake’. Manning has created a triumphant piece which shakes sensibilities, upturns stereotypes and makes us smile at the sheer conundrum of being human...An entertaining, truly natural, smoothly written and directed script. Nine skits with fifteen players are like leaves in the book of everyday America's s social and political issues as they inhabit our lives...Each piece, fully explored, leaves us with where do we go from here?” Full Review
"A lush and evocative script filled with humor, bite, and innuendo...Gardley effectively weaves the soft Louisiana accent, French phrases, and a modern poetic sensibility into a crisp vehicle...Each character is well developed and resonates with both a keen sense of personal veracity and a meaningful reflection of historic truths...If the playwright intended a bitter/sweet elegy to the foundations of Creole culture, he most certainly has achieved that end in a fabulous evening of theater."

"Walsh delivers her part with an emotional veracity as she explores the meaning of her life's choices...Sargeant gracefully balances between gripping self-reflection and comedic reminiscences as he conveys the real possibilities of a final flight...Playwright Eliza Bent captures the absurdity of airline travel in its staccato attention to details and overarching commandment to relax...'Bonnie's Last Fight' is filled with humorous twists, and unexpected turns." Full Review
“Thoroughly entertaining...The musical takes a most serious context, the fate of the troops in the trenches of WWI, and tackles the still relevant issues of women's rights and equality. The play harvests an engaging, upbeat and energized performance...The entire cast...has spunk...The clarity of the performance is palpable...Destined for a bigger stage, ‘Hello Girls’ might give us more space between vocal numbers and dramatic arc.” Full Review
"With a cast that is professional in every way that the term repertory suggests, director Jose Zayas creates a graceful and well-timed piece of theater...Cruz’s own background in classical and popular vocal venues are apparent in the authenticity of his creation of world of his characters...Cruz uses elements of magical realism to knit a story that has psychological and spiritual implications for everyone...The playwright is deep, but he is also funny. There is much humor here." Full Review
