Babe: An Olympian Musical

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

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.

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.

Paula Anderson

Julius Caesar

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

Frankenstein Incarnate: The Passions of Mary Shelley

A work overflowing with ideas and understanding.

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.

Katie Starks

The Love Talker

Riveting.

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.

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.

The Most Massive Woman Wins 2009

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!

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.

The Taming

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

Cherry and Spoon

Unraveled

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

The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women

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

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)

My Sister In This House

Bold...a disquieting tragedy.

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.
