"A daring, provocative and highly intelligent play...Under the direction of Rachel Karp and Jaki Bradley, the cast includes a strong ensemble of six with the chemistry of an acting troupe that has been together for years...I wish I could tell you that the play ends as lighthearted and jovial as it begins, but alas, it does not, which creates a tonal imbalance...The play performs at a brisk 90 minutes but only scratches the surface of some of the complicated questions that it broaches."

"'#liberated' is on point with where cutting-edge New York theater is headed...Karp and Bradley bring to light the all-too-current issue of the price women pay for seeking sexual liberation...It really seems like everything females do for their own pleasure is criticized and stripped down by a male-dominant society...The women feed off each other the entire show, dually in comedic and dramatic moments, so much so that the creative process must have been a dream."

“Six women endeavor to make feminist pornography in ‘#liberated’, a refreshing, enjoyable, often dark comedy...More than a play about porn or even feminism; it becomes a commentary on cyberbullying…The joys contained in these film shoots are too many to spoil here...each scene is unique and utterly bizarre in its own glorious way. There isn’t much in the way of actual sex and no nudity shown at all for those who might be squeamish at this point. It is just pure fun and out-there fantasy."

"A feminist play to end all feminist plays...A strong commentary on objectification, sex, gender roles, and the great power that is anonymity on the Internet…The only major woe was there was very little semblance of character development…But this isn’t a play about characters. It’s about social awareness...The sextet had a blast playing, bringing colossal harmony to life…'#liberated' is slow to start...But once momentum and plot are introduced, #liberated is off to the races."

"'#liberated' is co-directed by Rachel Karp and Jaki Bradley—it’s almost as if one directed the first half with the other directing the second. There are some good comedic moments early on, although not sustained, and it’s easy to see that the women enjoy each other...'#liberated' seemed to want to say something profound. Unfortunately, it never said enough. It did not include women of color, or create a powerful, lasting conversation."
