HIR is the conscientiousabsurdist's guide to confronting 'the world order.' It'scrazy watchable, like some kind of substantive, impactful, topsy-turvy sitcom. Mac's characters are flamboyant and talk very loud about all the things that our parents told us not to discuss in public.And it's wonderful!BWW Review: OPERA REVIEW: MADAME BUTTERFLY AT THE WASHINGTON NATIONAL OPERA May 9, 2017

Albee's characters are shockingly volatile. They curse, they drink and they revel in inflecting pain. It's funny, heartbreaking and yes, slightly familiar. Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? may have debuted in 1962 but the truth it provokes still feels relevant.BWW Review: THE HARD PROBLEM at Studio Theatre January 18, 2017
The Hard Problem is the brainchild of Czechoslovakian-born British playwright Sir Tom Stoppard. Contrary to all scientific intelligence, Hilary clings to the mysterious. In the spirit of the scientific method, the audience must as: but why? As Dramaturg Lauren Halvorsen notes so concisely, the tension between knowledge and mystery pervades the play.BWW Review: Welcome Yule with A NORDIC CHRISTMAS REVELS at Lisner Auditorium December 12, 2016
