"Director Samuel moves the action of 'Miss' at a reasonably even pace and supports her cast as they peel away the layers of dissemblance and desperation. It is the peeling of those layers that gives 'Miss' its strength. Too often, however, the characters get involved in implausible situations, but the denouement is worth the wait despite some bumps in the dramatic arc. Albert’s characters are well-defined and their conflicts clear. The resulting plot is interesting and thought-provoking." Full Review
"Samuel chooses to have the trio mostly stand and talk, giving Albert’s text the spotlight it deserves. Perhaps more activity would add to the tension between the characters and to the naturalism this production is going for...A shocking ending that takes place after an already unnerving twist had me wishing Albert didn’t feed the need to give me the explosion I was expecting...The story of three people who have fallen in their own personal ditches and have no energy or faith left to climb out."

"The playwright tells us way more than we need to know about way too many details, and in some cases way too many times. The play is saved by the agile direction of Kaitlyn Samuel, and the especially fine performances by all three actors. O'Brien is shackled with the largest share of the extraneous and redundant, but nonetheless manages to confront this broad range of circumstances effectively, without becoming a caricature in any of them."
