The Buzz

Sherry’s Basement

"Blessed with a certain loopy charm."

City Pages

My Sister In This House

Bold...a disquieting tragedy.

Dylan Hicks City Pages

Directors’ Gym 2005

I was able to work with some fine actors who helped me to shape and form this project into something that not only made sense, but speaks volumes.

Virginia Krubsack Participating Director

How I Learned To Drive

Paula Vogel and Theatre Unbound dare to tell the truth.

Lydia Howell Twin Cities Daily Planet

The Taming

...a whole lot of fodder for political satire, humor, and wackiness.... The Taming delivers. Clever, funny and topical.

Cherry and Spoon

The Most Massive Woman Wins

"A must-see!"

St. Paul Pioneer Press

Brilliant Traces

Linder and Poirier do a wonderful job with these characters. In lesser hands, they could have easily been reduced to a "movie-of-the-week"-type cliches, but the performances held my interest throughout this very touching hour.

Florence Brammer Brilliant Traces

Directors’ Gym 2004

A wonderful challenge in creativity.

Kelly McGowan Participating director

Girl Shorts 2014

Now bigger and better!

Bone-chilling

Audience review

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.

John Townsend Lavender Magazine

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.

Max Sparber City Pages (May 24, 2000)

Medea: a Noh Cycle

...this forceful production illuminates the misogyny and injustice that compel [Medea] to vengeance.

John Townsend Minneapolis Star Tribune

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

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

The Most Massive Woman Wins 2009

The gutsiest, most engaging, painful, wonderful, transforming show I've seen in years. Women: Get set for shocks of recognition. Men: Yes, it really is like this. Come only if you have the courage to grow.

Tess Galati The Most Massive Woman Wins

Boy Gets Girl

Theatre Unbound stares without flinching at the destruction of a woman's life, in a world where the innocent aren't guaranteed safety...

Quinton Skinner City Pages

Brilliant Traces

This show will touch you and wake and shake you up, days after you see it! Linder and Poirier work so well together, you forget how much work goes into doing this kind of an intense performance! Miriam Monasch has staged it to the stars' advantage, both visually and vocally. Watching this show reminded me that we are all so close to the line, and can go either way depending on the heart of the person nearest us. Bravo and Brava to Linder and Poirier!

24-Hour Play Project 2009

Prominent local artists walk the tightrope of on-the-spot creation.

Quinton Skinner City Pages

The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women

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

William Randall Beard Minneapolis Star Tribune

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

Girl Shorts 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed myself - what a wonderful variety of thought-provoking and fun work.

Christine Noonan Audience Review

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.

Matthew A. Everett Twin Cities Daily Planet

The Good Fight

The play powerfully dramatizes a significant era for women.

W. Randall Beard Minneapolis Star Tribune

Murderess

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