Constanza Macras: On Dorky Park<font size=2> by Mark Boeker</font> Oct 7, 2006

This show was so hot there was a fire engine waiting outside immediately after leaving the theater...no serious. It was hot in that dorky vs. sexy way. The playfulness and inventiveness kept me enthralled throughout and even though, after a pitch-perfect first act, the wind left the sails a bit, there would be a change of scenario, like a rice-cake eating contest to Bon Jovi's "You Give Love A Bad Name" performed by the entire troupe, and I'd be focused right back in. Who knew dance could be so much fun?

Constanza Macras/Dorky Park: Review in the New York Sun Oct 6, 2006

"the kind of show that generates wildfire word-of-mouth...if you can picture a sequence including a rock ballad, a guy on one roller skate, a striptease involving a flute and a neck brace, Vivaldi's 'The Four Seasons', and an inflatable sheep... you're well on your way to imagining the dizzying anarchy of 'Back to the Present.'" -The New York Sun read the review

Matthew Richter: On Dinner Theater by Jon Milazzo Sep 18, 2006

I'm not going to say that Matt Richter is a genius but, well, there you go, I said it. Dinner theater. Boy does it bring to mind bad performances of 'Godspell' and anemic meals of fettuccine alfredo and iceberg lettuce. There is nothing in this evening that even faintly resembles dinner theater as we know it. Nothing. Welcome to the new world. You enter the darkened theater. You are asked to stand in front of the first row of seats. More people file in. They stand in front of you. There is a black curtain blocking the stage. You don't know if you should sit or not.
