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..."

City Pages August 18, 2016

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.

Julius Caesar

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

Shattered

Smartly written, smartly performed.

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.

24-Hour Play Project 2009

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

The Taming

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

The Tempest

A winner.

24-Hour Play Project 2008

Everyone jumps in with both feet. Everyone seems to make broader, braver choices.

BABE: An Olympian Musical

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

Lydia Howell Twin Cities Daily Planet October 22, 2016

Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)

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

The Most Massive Woman Wins

"A must-see!"

St. Paul Pioneer Press August 18, 2016

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 October 29, 2016

Brilliant Traces

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!

Jill Johnson Brilliant Traces October 22, 2016

The Good Fight

The play powerfully dramatizes a significant era for women.

Sherry’s Basement

"Blessed with a certain loopy charm."

City Pages August 18, 2016

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.

Dixie Treichel Brilliant Traces October 22, 2016

Directors’ Gym 2004

A wonderful challenge in creativity.

Kelly McGowan Participating director November 25, 2016

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) December 8, 2016

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 November 25, 2016

Aphra’s Attic: Plays by Early Women Playwrights

...an intriguing proposition.

Quinton Skinner City Pages November 25, 2016

Murderess

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