"The overlapping worlds of the play, which is both earthbound and shot through with romanticism are least successful when most wedded to reality. But when 'Red Flamboyant' steps off into myth and ghosts and fever dreams, it at last begins to breathe...It seems unlikely that this is the play’s final form; it would be unfortunate if it were. Mr. Nguyen is aiming intriguingly high. He may just need a little more time to get there."

"Courage fighting AIDS. Courage fighting to get Han Dynasty China out of Vietnam.There are two exciting storylines at work in 'Red Flamboyant,' a play and aerial experience. Most importantly, the mostly female characters are solidly written and portrayed. This is a wonderful peek into what it takes to survive, or to make a difference."

"'Red Flamboyant' is a heartfelt tale about a deeply important issue still affecting the world today. With some editing, snipping, and time to grow, this piece will bloom like its namesake flower."
