All three main characters were excellent. I think the woman who played Christine, however, had a really difficult speaking role, since she had to have the speech of a deaf person while still making her speech understandable to the audience. She...continued

An exceptionally well-written, well-directed, and well-acted play. Upsetting, but very thought-provoking.

Provocative and thought-provoking play, well-acted. The female lead, in particular, was incredible. We've been talking about it all weekend.

Well done! The acting was top notch, especially by the actor who portrayed Chad. I was also impressed by the staging. It was an incredibly small stage but they did a great job with the sets and lighting. While the story is not very uplifting,...continued

In The Company Of Men is a night in the theater to be remembered for years to come. The acting is superb, and the writing is smart and edgy. If your tastes run to musicals, this is not the play for you. The level of cruelty in this play is...continued

Probably his most brutal play, LaBute confronts us with the cruel side of human nature and that it is not only sociopaths who indulge it. Profiles does a first class job of taking on the material head on in an unblinkingly honest way with a great...continued

This is an excellent production of a story that makes you feel like you need a shower when it ends. Chad is such a despicable character - one can only hope he is purely fictional. The performances are excellent, the staging is creative. The story...continued

The play is well written and superbly acted. Just warm people to bring something to fan themselves, because they turn off the air conditioning during the performance, and it was sweltering in the theater. The play was worth it, though.

I really enjoyed this play, and I am a great fan of both Neil LaBute and Profiles Theatre. The set was well laid out for this very small and intimate venue, and the tension was well represented by the cast. I consider myself an average joe when it...continued

Intriguing story with an unexpected turn. Convincing acting, sometimes difficult in a small theatre with the audience sitting so close. I liked the technique of actors occasionally speaking directly to the audience. I was completely involved in...continued

Profiles is up to its usual high standards. Neil Labute, who wrote the screenplay, did a wonderful job bringing his film to the stage.

In the beginning, we were offended with the language. As the show progressed, I felt the language just had to be as it was. The actors did an excellent job. The theme, although dark, was really food for thought.
