Theatre is Easy

for a previous production "'Dating, Depression and Dirtbags' has a compelling story and an amusing script, and with a louder and slightly more streamlined delivery it would be sure to leave any audience in stitches. Most likely any woman (or perhaps man) who has had to deal with their own romantic woes will identify with Zagreda’s humorous story of journeying towards inner strength and recovery. Those recovering from their own heartbreak will find catharsis in the show’s humor and authenticity." Full Review

City of Kik

for a previous production "Director Joan Kane cautiously and expertly coaches her actor, encouraging her to dig deep and share her most painful memories with the audience. Zagreda, a brave and talented performer, renders her viewers awestruck at strategic moments in the show. We are left hoping that in the very near future she finds happiness off-stage with a "non-dirtbag" by drawing on her experience." Full Review

Indie Theater Now

for a previous production "Through all the humor and heartache, Zagreda seems to be telling us how invaluable friends and family are when is comes to healing from absolute heartbreak. I for one enjoyed the show and encourage anyone who has been the unfortunate victim of their own DB (and who hasn’t at one point or another?) to see the show." Full Review

ELJ All Arts Annex

for a previous production "As an overall narrative it has an expected arc, but some of the finer points that could bring a piece like this to the next level are not there yet. Moments are touching and others are funny, but one gets the sense that it may as yet be too soon for the writer/performer to present with abandon such painful events from her past." Full Review
