"I love these actors; each and everyone one of them. They are charismatic, endearing, and raw. They are powerful and won't let their bodies be controlled by the patriarchy."

(Culture Catch)

"Cleverly blending time, form, and theme, Irina Krueva provides apropos eye-catching costumes and minimal scenic design of a bar stage hung with Edison bulbs, using hoop skirts and shades."

(DC Metro Theatre Arts)

"...brings unrestrained humor and sparkle to its subject without in any way diminishing that subject's history of widespread cruelties and individual courage—a potent, tremendously entertaining mixture." 
(Thinking Theatre NYC)
