"Finds strength in its political voice...However, these important themes are sometimes lost in 'Agnus’s' unfocused plot...The creative team makes the most of the intimate Lion Theatre, using staging techniques, lighting, and projection design to make the production feel grand and evocative...There are elements of brilliance tucked away in an ambitious script and characters worth exploring, but these elements are intertwined with a story that often feels both unfinished and unfulfilling."

"Of the seven theatrical ventures featured on the night that I visited, three were brilliant and sharply written pieces that frequently had the audience roaring with laughter. Only two failed to blossom into fully-formed concepts...'Rule of 7×7' combines the best of theatrical entertainment and improvisational art to create a rousing, and often riotous, evening that showcases diverse, young talent in New York City."

"Essentially a theatrical drinking game...Some of the 'facts' presented in this show are questionable, which may have more to do with the fast-paced and haphazard presentation style than the accuracy of the content...All that said, Trish and Will are energetic and fun actors who clearly have an interest in the subject matter...Ultimately, this is the sort of act that would work better if Trish and Will were trying to entertain a handful of people at a pub rather than performing in a blackbox."

“‘Glassheart’ is a tale of self-discovery, of the unique nature of relationships and of the search for identity in life’s pursuits...Portions of the play reflect a refined writing style – minimal yet packed with complex themes and issues...The ensemble is quite strong...Even with its faults...’Glassheart’ is enchanting – an engaging, funny and, at times, superbly subtle production that does justice to its source material while also reinvigorating it with new meaning."

"Joy maintains a welcome emotional balance, writing scenes such that the somber moments in the play are often punctuated with lighthearted anecdotes, which give the narrative a meaningful authenticity. The pacing feels a bit slow at times due to repetitive content, but these lulls are a relatively minor problem in an otherwise well-crafted play...The technical artists are joined by a strong ensemble of actors who capture the depth of emotion of their respective artistic wards."
