Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
Soho/Tribeca
Haines His Way

for a previous production "It is more comic than horrifying but that is fine. It breaks up the tension. The show runs barely 80 minutes and there is never a dull moment as the talented duo of writer/performers brings their vision to the stage. Grinstead plays the dual role of the meek, good-natured Dr. Jekyll with just the right amount of shy uncertainty then with a quick spasm of energy becomes the evil, wet-fur-smelling vulgar and violent Mr. Hyde. Stromberg is a marvel as all the other characters." Full Review

Haines His Way

for a previous production "A production that was pure theatrical magic...It’s truly a very rare event in theatre when the writing, direction, concept, acting and technical aspects all come together so seamlessly to create such heartfelt art...Don’t miss it. It is sure to be a theatrical highlight of 2015 just as it was in 2014. And if you were lucky enough to see it, you won’t want to miss this return engagement." Full Review

Amelie

Haines His Way

for a previous production "Failed to capture the intrinsic whimsical charm of the film...A little bit of whimsy goes just so far on stage unless it is played full out. The creators haven’t committed fully, staying somewhat in a neutral, realistic space that this piece doesn’t quite work in…'Amelie' is sure to disappoint fans of the film…Soo is charming and carries the show and the cast manages to make the most of their time…The score does sound pretty much the same from beginning to end with no real standout."

Allegiance

Theatermania

for a previous production "George Takei and Lea Salonga lead an excellent cast in this powerful musical about a Japanese-American family during World War II...It's a heady subject, and one handled with surprising deftness in this powerful new musical." Full Review
