Resonant, Engaging, Great set, Incisive, Sweet

See it if you've ever wondered what social media is doing to the way people interact with each other.

Don't see it if you're a snob about high production values. (Not that this show looks bad--far from it--it just helps to be realistic about its budget.)

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Relevant

See it if you enjoy commentary about the state of interpersonal connections among today's younger generation.

Don't see it if you cannot cope with technology and haven't a clue what Facebook, Twitter, Vine, and the like are all about.

"There is not a lot in terms of subject matter that is new within this production, but the characters are complex and well-developed enough so that even a story line that might feel a bit tired is imbued with freshness. The strength of the actors' performances also serves to make this show an engaging one...'Connected' held my interest from start to finish, and I found myself riveted as I waited to see what would happen to the sympathetically rendered characters."

"Tightly crafted to highlight the funniest and most tragic aspects of our hyper-use of social media platforms and interactions with robotic technology, Romeo reminds us that keeping flush with social media trends isn’t necessarily the way to expand our souls...Romeo presents her themes through four humorous, interconnected vignettes adroitly honed from start to finish...Dynamically directed, well-acted, expertly conceived production."

"The characters Romeo has crafted are strong, well-rounded, and relevant...The perspectives Romeo embraces may resonate best with a specific demographic but that doesn’t mean they don't succeed. But where 'Connected' seems to majorly miss the mark is through Michole Biancosino’s direction...With endless possibilities, Biancosino’s vision was clunky...Despite some technical misfortunes, 'Connected' is an exquisite look at humanity through a digital lens."

"Director Michole Biancosino did due justice to Romeo’s diamond-in-the-rough material and talented cast...[The play's] strength is that it manages to be a wry commentary on the way things are now, for better or for worse without becoming condescending. What may end up being its biggest win is its potential to spark a dialogue across all platforms – including face-to-face communication."

"'Connected' is about the way that younger people, particularly teens, are interacting in a world of social media and how it's kind of the same as the world before social media. It tries really hard not to be technophobic. The characters start off very, very broad, but we get a clearer picture of them as real people as their plots unfold."
