"It’s certainly a challenge to merge the superhero genre with that of musical theatre, but 'Super!' is well on its way to creating something special. While Krueger’s story may need to work out some of its kinks, his characters are well-drawn and interesting, and his score is filled with some impressive musical moments. If given the necessary revisions, this is one superhero show that will have the chance to fly above all the rest." Full Review
"While the script isn’t entirely forgiving of its age—much of its dialogue feels rather creaky, and many of its discussions never reach their full existential potential—it does manage to inject what could be a rather stuffy premise with a hearty dose of humor…Though it may not be remembered as the most provocative or the most inventive piece of theatre out there, 'The Hummingbird’s Tour' is an entertaining diversion, and a sweet reminder of the importance of embracing life’s full potential."

"While 'Promising’s' dramatic arc may be somewhat lacking, veering too far towards melodrama in its final scenes, its presentation of these questions is more than enough to create a compelling piece of theatre...While it may not join the canon of renowned political dramas, 'Promising' is a thoughtful exploration of our contemporary political culture—and, more importantly, a wonderful showcase for some—ahem—promising talent."

for a previous production "Cynical yet sweet...The play offers a view of contemporary romance that is simultaneously humorous and heartfelt...A script that expertly balances the saccharine with the serious, even as it is a bit overlong, and perhaps slightly more complicated than is necessary...Director Max Freedman also deserves accolades for so organically orchestrating this play...A romantic comedy for people who’ve grown weary of romantic comedies."
