...the Bernie Madoffs of Wall Street...knew what they were doing, just at Dr. Jekyll knows what he is doing.

Kim Hines Director

Simply Gerta

Theatre Unbound looked at the possiblity and potential of my words, where I could be, rather than where I had been. That's a rare and honorable artistic choice.

Carol Critchley Playwright

...an intriguing proposition.

Motherhood Out Loud

I appreciated the way in which this production was able to take such a serious subject and balance that seriousness with humor. Particularly apt at this was actor Stacey Poirier, whose comedic timing and physical presence had a way of driving humor within her scenes. The entire cast was exemplary, and Poirier stood out.

Theatre Unbound has hit the mark with this year's smackdown.

Sophie Kerman Aisle Say Twin Cities

The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women

A scathing satire, skewering the mythology of sisterhood. A strong cast of diverse women carry the story ... successful as a comedy, but ...thought-provoking as well.

William Randall Beard Minneapolis Star Tribune

24-Hour Play Project 2003

The thrill, the exhilaration, and the sense of pride and accomplishment more than make up for the fear, the doubts, and the worry. Not to mention the lack of sleep.

Betty Liedtke Chanhassen Villager

...passionate and romantic...most definitely thought-provoking.

William Randall Beard Minneapolis Star Tribune

Breaks as much ground in theater as its amazing lead character did in sports.
