"Line up the Tony Awards now. Albee’s words, both abstract and specific circle, around an emblematic woman’s history, her wiles, excesses, entitlements, and deprivations. Deeply funny...Its overall excellence is achieved in Joe Mantello’s direction, Ann Roth’s costumes, particularly the lavender palette in the second part, and Buether’s scenic design." Full Review
“The excellent company work the crowd as is now the custom in immersive theater. Favorite songs as are beautifully done in juxtaposition with Todd’s machinations with the incomparable Mrs. Lovett. Siobhan McCarthy inhabits this role with a gorgeous voice and murderous glee…Under Bill Buckhurst’s direction, the play moves apace, and is a serious hoot. You are not likely to have more fun at any other play this season.” Full Review
"An exuberant, fresh, musical…The play gives a clear image of how humans can occupy center stage, even in a fast-changing and not altogether truth-speaking virtual world…The number that everyone will be humming is the show’s anthem, ‘You Will Be Found.’ When the crowded images disappear at an apple orchard that has become a memorial to the dead boy, the peaceful vision inspires hope, especially for the vibrant genre of musicals."

"For a tight 90 minutes, they go at each other in a spare, grim motel room in Nowheresville, the Mojave Desert's edge. From Eddie's first words: 'I'm not leaving,' you are in the play's intense grip, pondering: who are these people?" Full Review
"'Sweat' gives poignant voice to a disenfranchised microcosm of the American heartland, as if Michael Moore’s Flint, Michigan had taken center stage. A fine ensemble is featured under Kate Whoriskey’s expert direction." Full Review
"A must-see...Under Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s superb direction, the straight line between Becker (the formidable John Douglas Thompson) and Booster (Brandon J. Dirden), the son he has not seen for 20 years is the tough love around which the drivers swirl in syncopated speech...By play’s end, with the wrecking ball of gentrification looming large over this fine-tuned ensemble, you are no more ready to leave the station than 'Jitney’s' drivers are." Full Review
"This entertaining romp through Markey's childhood has been extended, and that's good news...The musical, featuring a first-rate band led by Emily Bate, belongs to Erin Markey...When you see her face encased in pantyhose, 'control top smooshed faces' remembering a childhood prank with her sister, it's not only hilarious, it is subversive...Making a show out of that material may be therapeutic for her, and it is great fun for us too." Full Review
"'Nice Girl,' beautifully written by Melissa Ross, follows the quiet rhythms of characters, particularly Jo, ruminating in silence. This was before cellphones and other distracting devices stole our reflecting time, so Jo's inner life engages us...Under Mimi O'Donnell's superb direction, 'Nice Girl's' wistful wisdom makes for excellent theater."
