- Hope Villanueva:6 Jun. 2020“ A completely fascinating musing on the future and aging (and not aging) that still manages to remain personal and human. It's possible to see each character's struggle clearly, making it impossible to take sides in the play's central debate: Is it better to age or stay forever young? I'd love to see this play in production, as well, and learn what a good group of designers will do with the future technology elements. ”
- Elana Gartner:2 Apr. 2020“ Portman does an excellent job of world building for the future while demonstrating the very real problems that her characters are struggling with regarding mortality, ethics and relationships. Well-written and engaging! ”
- Chas Belov:29 Apr. 2018“ I saw the Quantum Dragon production and loved it. A delightful and touching look at how aging is treated in society told as speculative fiction with a larger-than-life central character. ”
