  • Ronald Reagan: Time Traveler
    9 Sep. 2018
    I saw this play at the Minnesota Fringe Festival in 2017 and it was a blistering romp through right wing politics and misplaced hero worship. Informative, informed, and super fun.
  • All of the Everything
    9 Sep. 2018
    I saw this play as a staged reading, and can’t wait to see it fully realized. This play uses bold theatricality to capture a woman’s grief and a deep, horrific sense of injustice. A timely, necessary piece.
  • The Hired Man
    9 Sep. 2018
    A sweeping drama with a juicy role for an actress in her late 30s/40s. This modern day Oedipus story traps its characters so effectively that you’ll be watching the last scene through your fingers.
  • G Train Exodus
    21 Jul. 2017
    Funny, and achingly magical. I caught a production at the Secret Theater one act festival and I still think about it every time I ride the subway. Fleitman has a way of finding the fantastical lurking behind the ordinary and bringing it on stage in inventive ways.
  • Always Plenty of Light at the Starlight All Night Diner
    3 Jul. 2017
    Sweet, fun, and full of SCIENCE! This queer time travel adventure lifts both its characters and the audience into another world.
  • Shut Up, I'm on a Diet!
    2 Jul. 2017
    Wild, aggressive, and surprisingly vulnerable. Catherine Weingarten deploys utterly contemporary language to obfuscate, avoid, and dive headfirst into Tess's troubled life and relationships. A piece for the fucked up mermaid inside all of us.
  • DIRTY DIRTY
    2 Jul. 2017
    A respectful, sex positive look at desire and consent behind the scenes at a porn studio. The plot moves quickly as all the characters reveal who they are and what they really want.
  • La Llorona
    28 Jun. 2017
    A bold, poetic look at the fear and fascination of being a teenage girl. The characters are vibrant and beautifully realized, great parts for young women. I was particularly struck by the expansive mythology and the changing faces of La Llorona as our protagonists face their own demons.
  • GREAT WHITE
    14 Oct. 2016
    Hypnotic, powerful, and unsettling. Scientific and emotional truths ring out long after the play is over. I still find myself thinking about animal distress calls.
