Theatre is Easy
March 5th, 2019

"Alternative mathematics using complex algebraic expressions blend with the narrative of a young, transgender narrator who goes backward and forward in time to review their actions...Schulenburg brings many powerful voices into her latest work. Hartford coaxes some fabulous performances from the ensemble, examining a compromised work environment from many angles...Hopefully, this intelligent play will make you want to broaden your math horizons."

“‘Operating Systems’ features...Schulenburg's signature traits: intelligence, heart, and compassion. Unfortunately, the characters come across as idea-delivery-systems rather than as dimensional people...Many of the ideas came across as political correctness rather than human complexity...The script reads funnier than the performance...It's hard to tell if that was a problem of direction, timing, enunciation."
