Theatre is Easy

"The Eagle Project's 'Uncle Abram' breathes new life into the Chekhov classic and offers a unique indigenous perspective on its environmentalist theme...Among the ensemble, Torres stands out as an impressive Esther...One disappointment might be the overly exaggerated costumes...'Uncle Abram' taps into the unique aspect of the importance of nature in Native American culture, which makes the piece more than just another Chekhov adaptation."

Stage Buddy

"'Uncle Abram: A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya' could just as easily have been named 'Uncle Vanya Gets Woke'...The production is fascinating, seeing racial and social themes that are still with us today through the eyes of those in the first years of living together ostensibly as equals...Chekhov would have liked it."
