Entertaining, Delightful, Great writing

See it if you want to see a variety of new works that displays the spectrum from younger to older talent and abstract to concrete writing.

Don't see it if you're only interested in a singular storyline. This is more like a showcase of writers, and has all the successes and pitfalls of such.

Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Relevant

See it if You want to see a charming yet insightful montage of mini plays on relationships and some good acting.

Don't see it if You don't like small intimate spaces where you are within spitting distance of the players.

"Humorous, often suspenseful and well-observed are the six short plays that comprise WinterWorks 2018...There are brief and pleasing interludes...Cohen's steady brightness illuminates each play to optimum effect...Cohen's compact scenic efforts...achieve the desired rapidity that keeps the production flowing...Collectively the plays and poems...are a quite enjoyable and entertaining experience and a wonderful showcase for the company of talented actors."

Theatre is Easy
January 31st, 2018

"The play that stands out the most is 'A New York Encounter'...Still, the younger actors win for the most entertaining piece: in 'Triple Play'....Each short play is separated by readings from 'Love Poems' by Lampley, but these interludes don't add enough to justify their disruption of momentum. As evenings of short plays go, this one is interesting and entertaining enough...If you don't like one of the plays, just wait ten minutes."

"The show starts off slow...The second play was a major improvement...While the show tilts toward being a positive experience, it is still a mixed bag, particularly in terms of the writing. This isn’t too surprising to me, as that seems to be the case quite often, with many one-act play events. Nonetheless, there is enough talent and there are enough funny moments in this production that make it worth going to see."
