Theatre is Easy
August 19th, 2016

"Katz proves herself to be both a gifted writer and performer as she creates a work that is humorous, insightful, and reflective of our current time. Katz is able to embody each of her well-developed characters so fully, both in terms of voice and mannerisms, that it is easy to forget this is a solo show. The struggles of her characters are both touching and laugh-out-loud funny."

Talkin' Broadway
June 1st, 2016
For a previous production

"With voices, faces, stances, and mannerisms matched to individualize each cartoonish character, Ms. Katz never misses a beat in her sixty minutes on stage to solicit many laughs as well as 'yeah, I've seen that before' nods of acknowledgement as she hits target after target in her poking, pointed parody…While some of the telling gets a bit repetitious in nature and a couple of side stories go on a tad long, overall Ms. Katz has written a tight, funny sequence of corporate events."

SF Examiner
June 9th, 2016
For a previous production

"A funny, astute one-person look at corporate culture...Katz wonderfully portrays a handful of characters...She also charmingly captures the workplace jargon…While what befalls 'The Company’s' workers is hardly surprising — nor is the way it happens — Katz wraps up her tale with a particularly interesting new viewpoint and character that could be explored much more, and add more depth to this amusing, if not entirely revelatory, glimpse."

The Huffington Post
July 9th, 2016
For a previous production

"A brilliant and smartly underplayed monologue…'Grey Matter’s' strength lies in Ms. Katz’s wry ability to perfectly capture the vague and useless ways in which language is deployed in today’s tech culture and deliver a carefully paced performance...Katz displays a keen mastery of contemporary business language, character development, and an ability to find the simplest human elements peeking out of the drab, dehumanizing environment of a large multinational corporation’s offices."
