Theatre is Easy
August 22nd, 2016
For a previous production

"Micaela Blei tells a story that is not only hilarious and engaging, but also deeply moving…Excellently directed by Catherine McCarthy, ‘Secret Life’ is structured with a schedule on the whiteboard…While I've described how 'Secret Life' is well-written, satisfying storytelling, I can’t really articulate how funny it is...I lost count of how many times I laughed out loud...The hour running time flies by, and by the end, I wanted to know even more about Blei and her adventures."

NY Theatre Guide
August 25th, 2016
For a previous production

"What is most engaging about the performance, though, is Blei herself. You can’t help liking her...She’s a merry prankster and a grand conspirator of fun. She insists on dance breaks during class. At one point, her boyfriend told her, 'I wish you had been my 3rd grade teacher.' Me, too...I am not sure what sort of future this piece has. It could certainly run at festivals for years to come...Blei is a lovely person, a grand storyteller, and plain fun."
