"When 'preacher' Doug Eskew launches into 'I Gotta Keep Movin'' at the start of 'Don’t Bother Me, I Can’t Cope,' you know you’re in for an evening of foot-stompin’, hand-clapping entertainment. But not always. Some of the numbers are quieter and thoughtful and help illustrate the African-American experience in a way that’s often moving and never angry…Under the direction of Leslie Dockery, a handsome company of eight singer-dancer-actors more than fills the bill."

"Much of the early show seems rushed. The story doesn’t really find its footing until the internees arrive at the camp...The score is rather enjoyable...A gripping tale, 'Allegiance' captures a period when America was facing one of its darkest hours from without, while at the same time, all too many made it even darker for those within."

"What makes the production so appealing is its quiet and elegant simplicity. We are drawn almost unconsciously into the tale...It’s a testament to Thomas’s writing that many of the scenarios presented can be seen as comical in one light and a bit tragic in another. One of the most striking things about 'A Child’s Christmas in Wales' is that no matter how many times we may see it, we can always find something different in its telling." Full Review
for a previous production "Ironically, for a play that teaches that love is the answer to life’s meaninglessness, the audience leaves feeling strangely disconnected. None of Sondheim’s bittersweet existential angst here. We don’t connect to the characters because we don’t experience their existential pain." Full Review
