Colin Douglas of CHICAGO THEATRE REVIEW, said 'It's an exciting production that's sure to be talked about for a long time." Lawrence Bommer, writing for STAGE AND CINEMA, said "AFTERGLOW shines." WINDY CITY TIMES reviewer Jerry Nunn said AFTERGLOW is a "concise piece that digs into heavy topics such as love, loyalty, sex, trust and parenthood." Josh and Alex are a gay male married couple in an open relationship. The two invite another man, Darius, to share their bed one night. When a new intimate connection begins to form, all three men must come to terms with their individual definitions of love, loyalty, and trust as futures are questioned, relationships are shaken, and commitments are challenged.

The nationally distributed, LGBT-focused magazine THE ADVOCATE, said it "Penetrates the psyche in a way that many gay men will find relatable. A gritty tale of commitment on the cusp of questioning its boundaries, the incredible acting and intense writing propels the audience's minds and hearts into their emotional plights."
