Always interesting and funny.

A wonderful challenge in creativity.

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

The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women

I had one of the best times in a theater that I ever had last night. What a fabulous production! Everyone in the cast was stellar. And what a brilliant idea about the voting. Not only did it rivet our attention to the action, but it made its point so clearly at the end when I couldn't vote on anyone's fate. Wow.

Girl’s Got Pluck

Just when you thought the straight-white-male version of history and art was becoming more irrevocably entrenched, Theatre Unbound dashes to the rescue.

Broken Peaces

Theatre Unbound rides a subway to fabulousness...the narratives are compelling...Coulombe has a particular interest in the tales that new immigrants bring to this country, and several of her characters' accounts of political violence in their native lands are harrowing.

Shattered

Smartly written, smartly performed.

Audience review

Girl Shorts 2013

There is absolutely something for everyone in a single evening.... You may not cry, but you’ll laugh, you’ll ponder, and you’ll be glad you came.

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.

Julius Caesar

...the production seemed to negate the question of gender altogether.

Murderess

Emotionally compelling...terrifying...darkly comedic.

The Good Fight

When you go to see the premiere of a new play, this is the kind of thing you hope to see. It's doubly wonderful because it's so rare.

Emotionally charged performances plus conceptually intriguing writing = a great theatre experience. I know what I need to do with that particular pair of shoes now also ... thanks!

24-Hour Play Project 2004

Guaranteed to depict females as wearing their brains a hell of a lot higher than their brassieres.

Dwight Hobbes Pulse of the Twin Cities

The Most Massive Woman Wins 2009

I encourage all American women to see this show. It is an excellent script filled with controversial subject matter, delivered sensitively and honestly by four very brave and incredibly talented actors. Very professional work and great use of space. This show gets my vote for the best of the Fringe.

Brilliant Traces

Burnt shoes, junk food and oil rigs-what do these have in common? A comedy-tragedy with existential concerns. Poirer and Linder are brilliant as the couple with secrets and emotional challenges. A great script by Cindy Lou Johnson and well directed by Miriam Monasch. Go See.

...messy, honest and painful - a bit like life at these points.

The Taming

The Taming delivers a shard of hope to offer some light amid the dismal conduct of our political arena.

Arthur Dorman Talkin' Broadway

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

10 Virgins

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

The resulting plays could crash and burn, turn out mind-blowingly awesome, or maybe a head-spinning combination of the two.

The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women

Stacey Poirier steals the show as the most ferocious of the feminists.
