"’Tootsie’ is very funny...The most obvious deviation from the movie is that out-of-work actor Michael passes himself off as Dorothy not in a daytime soap opera, but in a Broadway musical...This change works quite well...All of the performances and production values are truly first-rate...This show--with updated twists on the film's humorous conceit, fine songs, singing, dancing, and acting, much delightful dialogue and even a nice sense of morality--really gets it right."

for a previous production "From early in Act I, when Newton was spearheading the auctioning and mistreatment of slaves, to deep into Act II, when despite a number of travails including being held captive, the protagonist remained a petulant asshole, I found the whole thing rather off-putting... And besides the parts of Amazing Grace I really didn't like, most of the rest--including the pre-answered question about whether Newton would find salvation--I just didn't much care about."

for a previous production "'Airline Highway' is easily one of the best new plays I've seen in 2014, a year in which I've seen several excellent ones...This fine new play is well-worth everyone's time, money and consideration. And though it has substantial depth despite ambiguous acuity, 'Airline Highway' is also a whole lotta fun." Full Review
for a previous production "Norris daringly utilizes a risqué scenario to garner ribald laughs while stimulating deeper consideration of myriad mentally-titillating topics...There is a fair amount of frank conversation about sex itself, as an emotional act or simply a physical one, and about monogamy, as a choice, an obligation, an implausibility and even an anachronism. 'The Qualms' is rather engaging throughout its 90 minutes, with any requisite audience discomfiture or even disdain being part of the point." Full Review
