Broadway Baby

for a previous production "A verbatim ensemble work that is both didactic and entertaining…After a while, among all the frivolity and sexual mimicry, the play becomes something of a predictable checklist of issues in which every box has to be ticked…It is an insight into an often dark world, where for many sex has overtaken their lives…For all of them, it provokes issues that need to be confronted not just by them but by society as a whole, and this play brutally brings those into the public domain."

Broadway Baby

for a previous production "These independent stories are told simultaneously…This may sound rather complicated in theory, but in its execution it becomes beguilingly simple and as wondrous as turning a kaleidoscope. Through their studies together the cast has worked collaboratively for some time and this clearly impacts the ease with which they interrelate in this production...'Reconciling' is ingeniously constructed and eloquently performed; worth seeing for its structure alone but also for the tales it tells."
