HoustonPress

for a previous production “The story is textbook but the rap is the real deal…A tremendously talented cast… ‘Syncing Ink’ takes a well-worn narrative arc and for the first half of the show breathes fire into it by virtue of the music which neither dumbs down for a novice audience nor condescends to the initiated. We love these characters and their rhymes enough to squirm through the oddly circuitous second act and come out cheering full throttle for an ending that we know is too neatly tied up in a pretty bow.” Full Review

Regal Mag

for a previous production “A play that is hip-hop to its core with no apologies for its rawness or blackness…One of the most creative plays to come out in a long time. Do not be surprised to see it soon on Broadway because it is just that remarkable. The cast was selected perfectly and the songs that provide the soundtrack will be music to any true hip-hop head’s ears. The entire cast shines…Except for a few botched lines, the cast put on a flawless performance.” Full Review
