The New York Times
September 8th, 2015

"It takes gumption to stage a play like 'The Taming of the Shrew' at a time when gender inequality is a growing concern. But the Drilling Company has taken it on and sweetened some of its aftertaste...While Mr. Colla’s Petruchio is a hearty presence, it is Ms. Fontaine, evolving from a harpy to a warm and earthy presence in a black sailor’s cap, whom you hunger for more of."

"In addition to directing, Mr. Colla also takes on the role of Petruchio. His vision for the play is sharp and his interpretation of the character is impeccable...The entire cast deserves a shout out...They work as a team creating strong, appealing characters that make this production of 'The Taming of the Shrew' a winner."

Times Square Chronicles

"There is much to compliment the actors for: their self-assurance and commitment to their roles. They did an impressive work of making Shakespeare sound colloquial. And that on itself is outstanding...These actors showed tremendous harmony and chemistry. The use of the Park space made it hard at times to see the actors, but it is a wonderful initiative of the Drilling Company."
