“First produced in the early ‘80s, the play receives a near-optimum staging from director Dana Jackson at Pacific Resident Theatre. In uniformly cogent performances, a superlative cast cuts to the emotional heart of Ibsen’s masterwork.” -Los Angeles Times
“This stark black-box take on Ingmar Bergman’s searing 1981 reduction of Henrik Ibsen’s immortal ‘A Doll’s House’ grabs its viewers from the outset and never lets go.” -Backstage, Critic’s Pick
“Go … the clarity and power of the show’s performances make this a textbook dynamic production of the tragic drama.” —LA Weekly
