"Elliot's play takes certain liberties with the story, but nonetheless tells a touching story of finding one's true identity, and the sacrifices that come with starting a new life. Director Stephen Brackett uses the tiny space well, keeping the action constantly moving with few breaks in the narration...While there are only four performers in the production, half of them playing multiple characters, this cast really delivers."

"'Traveling Papers' is not an original play in the traditional sense, but it is an original and intriguing concept...that is sure to entertain fans of literature, theatre and anyone who may have their own travel stories to tell. If nothing else, it provides a hearty laugh for your evening." Full Review
"Director Katharine Sommer succeeds in finding just the right actors for the roles. Everyone stands out...Aside from the nonlinear storytelling, 'Punk as Fuck' is very much a romantic drama in the vein of John Hughes, only in a punk rock setting. Anyone who that description appeals to will have a very good time at this show." Full Review
"The ideas presented here are far bigger than the space of the theater, and that allows them to be heard louder. The show isn't quite perfect: some parts of the play called for greater clarity, and there were a few instances of unneeded self-parody for the sake of easy laughter, when in fact the comedy was already present in the writing. Staging is thankfully simple; it allows the message to come through clearly, and stay with you for some time afterwards." Full Review
"History never looked so hilarious...Sure to be a hit with '90s nostalgics, the humor will no doubt pull millennials in as well. It is a hysterical and toe-tapping romp through a recent time in history, and this reviewer feels the show is destined for Broadway." Full Review
for a previous production "In contrast with the show's shoestring budget, the music is surprisingly memorable...The fun of interactive theater is the audience participation, and 'Wongo' succeeds in that department. Director Rigano clearly prioritized a fun time. If drinks, dancing and music are your thing, 'Wild Women of Planet Wongo' will not disappoint." Full Review
"Even if one is not familiar with the 17th-century dialect, the cast manages to inflect enough on every word that few will be confused as to what the characters are talking about. This is especially helpful for the show's laugh-out-loud humor. There are plenty of handsome lords and beautiful ladies in the cast, and all carry themselves with the sharpest of wits...While Jacobean plays aren't everybody's thing, this reviewer feels many should make an exception and try and catch 'The Roaring Gir...

for a previous production "Writing-wise 'The Flatiron Hex' drags for the first half of its 90-minute run time as the audience is still struggling to understand the world they are suddenly thrust into...However, at or around the halftime mark, the story goes utterly bananas. The play falls down a rabbit hole of insanity and keeps tumbling down until its climax; this crazed second half is what saves the show...For those with a taste for the outlandish and weird, 'The Flatiron Hex' is a humorous ride of the imagination." Full Review
"While not everyone can claim to have had an identical experience as these characters, the heart and soul of the show revives a sense of youth within you...If you're not a Long Island City local, this reviewer still recommends you make the trip out to catch this touching and humorous play, which tells a story of youth, frustration and disappointment with just enough awkward humor."
