"'YOUARENOWHERE' is artistically complicated and aesthetically striking...Technological cleverness aside, 'YOUARENOWHERE' contains moments of astounding and confusing beauty that come from the pace, timing, physicality, expression, and the presence of Schneider as well as other performers...It's an achievement that Schneider and his creative team are able to invent 'YOUARENOWHERE' not only as a theatre piece but as a place, a space, and an experience that is uncanny."

"Promoted as a 'poetic thriller,' 'Abyss' depends upon lyrical text, opacity, and, to a degree, metaphor and an abstract narrative. However, 'Abyss' is lengthy and requires an intense focus in order to follow and find the story’s nuances. While this type of writing could be magical and thought provoking, in spite of any compelling concerns about the underlying political themes, it can also result in a degree of frustration and a level of indifference as regards the characters and the events."

"The dance movement is beautiful, but the pas de deux pairings, which occur periodically throughout the piece, are exquisite. They evoke longing, confusion, and conflict which estranges these worshipers from their own humanness...A spirit of connection and collaboration is deftly depicted on stage in the performances as well as evoked in almost every component of the production’s other creative contributions."

"Inspired by the 100th anniversary of an avant-garde playhouse, 'Sisters' Follies' is a magical production that conjures various theatrical elements and alchemizes them into an experience of pure delight...Every ingredient of this rich production enlivens the storytelling and contributes to what makes this 'spooktacular' kinda spectacular."
