"One of the best performances you'll see this season. ... If you go to see American Moor — and you should — leave any white fragility you may have at home." Read Pete Hempstead's full review here.


Evan Jonigkeit and Maura Tierney star in Jen Silverman's Witch at the Geffen Playhouse.

"Witch brings cackles and spells of hilarity throughout, but it can be quite existential and profound. It offers no answers, but definitely asks the right questions." Read Jonas Schwartz's full review here.


Make Believe

"A testament to the power of pretend, Make Believe grounds itself in uncomfortable realism, resulting in the most thrilling new play of the summer." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.


Queen of Hearts

"Like [Austin] McCormick's previous shows such as Cinderella and Ferdinand, Queen of Hearts is a sophisticated smorgasbord of smart, sexy performances seasoned with a naughty pinch of S&M." Read Pete Hempstead's full review here.

Sleep No More
