“The actresses render their characters with multiple layers and the complexity of women who have tried to live their lives as best they could, only to find each questioning their choices and themselves. ‘Remember Me’ touches on mortality and lays bare the limitations of cultural expectations placed on womanhood and femininity, and the ideals that are still so heavily ingrained in people even when they challenge these expectations and ideals.” Full Review
"Themes of race, class, consumerism and culture unfold in the delightful new comedy 'Love & Money,' by legendary playwright A.R. Gurney...'Love & Money' is ultimately about one person at the end of her life, wanting a life of simplicity, and another at the beginning of his life, consumed with the desire for so much more."

"The title may seem sensational to some, but accurately reflects the farcical nature of the play... But just as in real life, the characters let their egos prevail, ignoring these simple truths or failing to follow what they preach. By the end of it, it’s pretty evident that women are crazy because men are assholes. However, like attracts like, so the inverse is also true. It takes two to tango in love, or more accurately, in codependency." Full Review
"Fatalism, consumerism and a heady love triangle lead to a deliciously wicked conclusion in director Lucia Cox’s adaptation of 'One Hand Clapping'...a historically astute production of a tale that is still relevant; universal themes of passion, egoism, entitlement and celebrity make 'One Hand Clapping' accessible across generations, though perspectives will no doubt differ wildly."

"The play’s real cleverness lies not in its name, but in the fact that it isn’t necessarily about 'Friends' or Ross and Rachel at all. It could be, or not...It's an experience to watch Vevers command the stage, spiraling out of control with subtly increasing intensity. Despite some laughs, the play is actually quite dark. Fritz doesn't take us where general expectations would have us go, but where it counts -- in the middle of the road -- where it is messy and bitter and cold." Full Review
"A thought provoking examination of love, sex and the subconscious mind...Under Braza’s direction, the cast brings humanity to a group of passionate souls who make horrible decisions. The actors deftly handle the material, turning the play into a sexy and humorous 90 minute romp. The ending may boggle the mind, but the ride getting there is mostly entertaining." Full Review
"'The Flick' is consistently funny, the delivery of lines so delightfully playful at times in spite of the characters being a woeful bunch...Ms. Baker’s script is surprising in that as simple and as trivial as things first appear, an interesting story unravels slowly, revealing great insight into these three characters and their different worlds. Peeling like layers of an onion, its revelations sit with you long after it’s over." Full Review
