All the Rage

"Sending the audience on a journey from New York to Africa to the stage of the Shubert Theatre and the A-Train, All the Rage has the potential to seem messily unfocused, but it's that exact quality, along with Moran's dry sense of humor and unassuming manner, that puts the show above other solo works of this nature, many of which easily fall into dramatic sob-fest territory."

The Height of the Storm

"[The Height of the Storm is] worth the price of admission for [Jonathan] Pryce and [Eileen] Atkins alone, and their unforgettable performances won't disappoint. Bring a pack of tissues, too." Read David Gordon's full review here.

Kingfishers Catch Fire

"It is easy to imagine a boring production of [Kingfishers Catch Fire], but the fact that there's never a dull moment is a testament to both the heroic performances of the actors and Kent Paul's unexpectedly tense staging." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.

Our Dear Dead Drug Lord

"Our Dear Dead Drug Lord...features four top-notch performances and a memorable debut from a playwright whose risk-taking talent is something to keep an eye on." Read Pete Hempstead's full review here.

Runboyrun & In Old Age

"Runboyrun...builds essential foundation for the second show of the night, In Old Age, which proves to be one of the most spiritually satisfying plays I've ever witnessed." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
