BroadwayWorld
February 19th, 2017

"'Visionary Voices' brings together a perfectly quilted collection of one acts that will without doubt leave you riveted, even smitten, by all that a good performance can do...Collectively, these plays serve as three distinguishable yet perfectly paired parts of a single story, each with its own mood, tone and pace that never leave the audience a dull moment...Bravo to the directors who made these three plays come together in such a beautiful way."

Theatre is Easy
March 1st, 2017

"Through savvy direction and design, this hour of theater passes quickly and hits on some relevant topics...The true standouts for 'Trifles' have to be its two leads...Bonner’s play 'Exit: An Illusion' is decades ahead of its time...Of the three pieces, 'The People' sticks out as the most dated...Three plays combine to make 'Visionary Voices' a very ambitious, smartly designed evening of theater—a platform for the 20th-century female experience that rings true still today."

Theater In The Now
February 23rd, 2017

"'Visionary Voices' was ambitious in the sense that this was three different plays needing three different worlds...How Mingshuo made it work was extraordinary...Sure, it may not have been the cleanest in execution but it was visionary! American Bard Theater Company has provided an important night of art for two important voice in American literature. Celebrating these texts of the brilliant women is wonderful. 'Visionary Voices' just needed a little more polish."
