From start to finish, entertaining, intelligent, witty and funny.
Goldstar audience member Audience review
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.

You are telling my mother's and my grandmother's stories!
...this forceful production illuminates the misogyny and injustice that compel [Medea] to vengeance.

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
We were truly blown away by the quality of acting, the fabulous script, etc... we had a wonderful time at the show (and laughed our a$$#s off!!!)

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

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.
this show was so worth it! i just sat there wanting to laugh and cry because all of it was so true and terrible at the same time. it sounded like they were writing about my life! life of all women. it was really powerful that they were so beautiful but yet dealt with the same issues i do. that says so much about our society and womens' issues. a great glimpse of the life of a woman for men to see too!

An eye-opening and mind-broadening evening.

Tough issues that, while at first glance seem to be about the female experience, are unexpectedly and powerfully universal - this is a show for both genders. Incredibly moving, well directed and beautifully performed.
...the production seemed to negate the question of gender altogether.

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.

Delta Giordano, in a completely fetching performance, plays Constance as brainy but self-thwarting, afraid of the passions to which she is entirely enthralled.

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.
Dixie Treichel Brilliant Traces
...a poignant statement about a generation suppressing its most fervent emotions underneath a Paxil haze.
Christy DeSmith City Pages
...a whole lot of fodder for political satire, humor, and wackiness.... The Taming delivers. Clever, funny and topical.
Cherry and Spoon
Bold...a disquieting tragedy.
Dylan Hicks City Pages
Smartly written, smartly performed.
Guaranteed to depict females as wearing their brains a hell of a lot higher than their brassieres.
Dwight Hobbes Pulse of the Twin Cities
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
...messy, honest and painful - a bit like life at these points.

This show is probably my favorite Fringe show I have seen this year. It was powerful and emotional, while also being humorous. The acting was phenomenal; each woman injected realism and charisma into the characters they played. Every woman can identify with the struggle to be comfortable with her own body while being bombarded with negative messages from the media, from their significant others, and even from their own parents. There was one character in particular with whom I strongly identified, but all four of the characters were realistic portrayals of American women. I highly recommend this show!

I've seen 'Julius Caesar' three times and this is the first time it made sense to me.
Christine Johnson Audience review
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.
