“THROUGH THE DARKNESS” is a beautiful, moving, inspiring play...

'“Through the Darkness” is a beautiful, moving, inspiring play about survival, prejudice, inhumanity, and acts of kindness—small and large.  Leslie Kincaid Burby, the director, orchestrates the powerful production with a flawless ease.'

'The staging transmits the complexity and authenticity of the stories. Moments of humor and sweetness are woven into the play, even in the face of terrible events.'

'The cast is excellent and so fully inhabited the characters that when I talked to the wonderful actress, Tracy Newirth, afterward, and she spoke without an accent, dressed in contemporary clothing, I was momentarily surprised, disappointed even.  I’d almost expected to speak to the Clara I saw on stage.

Ronna Wineberg, NYC Splash

"Now that I have experienced the “WILL A THON,” I can marvel at this achievement."

"I am not a Shakespeare fanatic. ...For this reason it seemed to me at first that I was not a great choice of reviewer.   But half way through the performance I realized that I was actually the perfect person to review.  I was entertained, moved, and impressed hearing scenes from plays I was not familiar with, quite an accomplishment on the part of the producers and actors. (Not to mention the writer!)"

"VERONA WALLS has much to entertain, charm, and delight you, and is well worth seeing."

"Verona Walls, by the talented young playwright Laura Hirschberg, presents a back story for Romeo and Juliet. It focuses on Mercutio, whose tale of love and death plays out against a backdrop of graffiti, modern pop tunes, and hipster hats. The potential for disaster is huge, but the show turns out to be charming, largely due to excellent direction of an engaging and talented cast."

Julia Polinsky, Theatrescene.com

VERONA WALLS: "...playwright Laura Hirschberg takes a powerful swing at making an original theater piece out of an oft-told-tale. It works."

"Playwright Hirschberg’s sense of fun is everywhere. Director DeLisa M. White milks the youthful exuberance of the characters.  The young lovers sit on the stage—his long legs encircling her buxom self—tasting the giddy pleasure of their new love.  As she worries about his ability to leave the Montague boys for her, McCurdy tips his head back provocatively, assumes a surprising Liverpool accent, and wonders aloud if she’s worried about “breaking up the band.  That it, Yoko?”   The very best moments in Verona Walls are those that capture the playfulness that goes with youth.  Of course, we know they are days away from tragedy."

THE ASTONISHING TIMES OF TIMOTHY CRATCHIT: "Allan Knee let his imagination fly, assembling a colorful cast of Dickensian characters to flesh out this rich story."

"...a remarkable, charismatic Nathan Gardner narrates the show.

 Scrooge a soulful, richly emotional, Robert Stattel

The entire cast is terrific

Thomas Coté’s thoroughgoing direction... contributed to what is a very extravagant production for off-Broadway."

Joel Benjamin, Theatre Pizzazz

"I felt like I was watching A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. THE ASTONISHING TIMES OF TIMOTHY CRATCHIT has that same madcap feel."

Scenic Design by Craig Napoliello, lighting by Diane Duecker and costumes by Kimberley Windbiel are all first rate.

If you see this show... you will discover a break out star. Nathan Gardner is the real deal. He can act, sing, dance and makes us love him. .. I predict this boy will be a star.

À LA CARTE: "Cumulatively it’s an entertaining program that gives a wonderful showcase to the excellent cast of actors that have been assembled to portray these often rich roles."

"To have selected this fine cast who all give superior performances, staged them all expertly, and realized the potential of each work is triumphant achievement.  Her work combined with the fine writing and excellent ensemble makes A la Carte: A Feast of New Plays, a very fulfilling theatrical event."

Darryl Reilly TheaterScene.net

À LA CARTE: "Our highest recommendation!"

"BOTTOM LINE: Our highest recommendation! The most exciting new work of the Off-Broadway season. Six brilliant short plays by superb writers, performed by a stunningly beautiful cast and superbly orchestrated by a masterful director. A must for enterprising theater-goers!...Please, WorkShop Company: Let's have another half-dozen courses from this delectable menu."

—Ronald Gross, NY Theater Buying Guide

DAUGHTERS OF THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION: "The narrative is a strong one...the acting, it is top notch too, from every single player,"

"...Laurie Schroeder as ready-to-break at any moment Judy Prescott (she’s got the most to do here and does it with aplomp); Christine Verleny as Joyce Horowitz, at first seemingly so together, even predatory, but then we find as wounded as anyone else; Alyson Lange plays that pretty much one get-under-your-skin one note of Stacia Horowitz; Michael Selkirk provides as much touching moments as he does subtle comic as Ed Horowitz, probably the wisest character here next to Stacia’s much beleaguered new college boyfriend Simon played by Luke Hofmaier and Greg Oliver Bodine plays a too-assured of himself Dr. Liam Prescott.  As I say they are all wonderful."

Ralph Greco, Short and Sweet NYC


DAUGHTERS OF THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION: " a joyous, insightful and involving work that is perfectly rendered."

"With a great sense of time and place, Ms. Goldstein has written a highly compelling and very 
entertaining, well-plotted play that examines the complicated relationships of these couples 
with believability, drama, and humor,'' "From its complexly comical opening scene to its wistful conclusion, Daughters of The Sexual Revolution is a joyous, insightful and involving workthat is perfectly rendered."

Darryl Reilly, Theatrescene.net

DAUGHTERS OF THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION: "is a real winner of a play..."

"Daughters is a real winner of a play because it tackles multiple aspects of a society undergoing fundamental change. Under Susanna Frazer’s careful direction, and cushioned by the period perfect (without being ostentatious or goofily exaggerated, as 1970s re-enactments often are) set (Jennifer Varbalow) and costume design (Annette Westerby), Dana Leslie Goldstein’s crisp and witty dialog flows easily, allowing us to fall deeply and un-distractedly into the play."

THE WINTER'S TALE: "A marvelous job..."

"Ryan Lee’s direction successfully portrays the Sicilian barrenness that opposes Bohemia’s chaotic innocence...The whole cast does a marvelous job of juggling the two opposites of Sicilia and Bohemia...This production of The Winter’s Tale turns the bleakness of a tragic winter into the vibrant sensuality of spring."  -- Juan Recondo, Off-Off Online
