    Lila Rose Kaplan crafts a lyrical story that metaphorically and literally bridges different worlds, eras, and souls. With a clear theatrical mandate and characters who break your heart, "100 Planes" dismisses simplistic answers to age-old questions. Instead, it takes you on its own emotional flight path with charm, fear, ambition, desire, until leaving you at the edge of the world, daring you to take that final step alone.

    A magical, romantic and poetic story of female ambition - how much harder women have to push to get ahead and what we have to - or feel we have to - let go of in order to get to the top.

    Such an interesting take on women in careers typically held by men. This play doesn't give us a moment of triumph or an uplifting ending but gives us a realistic that is messy and complex.
