The weather was cold. I wore boots and a down coat expecting the theater to be chilly but it was quite comfortable, even with the polar apocalypse about to descend..

“Here as ever, Ruhl has a finger to her chin in poetic meditation, with the added attraction of a youthful yodel in her heart.” -Washington Post
“Daugherty, proving he’s a master at balancing quirk and well-intentioned story-telling, is able to show the dance that Mary is dancing – both literally and figuratively – in her relationships and in her own mind in a consistently interesting way. Overall, this artistic vision serves the piece well.” —Broadway World
“[Daugherty] seems to have found the exact mix of comedy and tragedy that best enhances the play’s effect … With this work, Alyssa Wilmoth establishes herself as a major Washington actor – the kind of performer whose appearance in a cast can serve as a stand-alone justification to see a play … Thomas and Dinolfo also acquit themselves well in difficult roles.” -DC Theatre Scene
