Quotes & Highlights

“Splendid! Without hesitation, I would urge anyone … to go see it, experience it. On the 75th anniversary of Our Town, this production is a showcase, not only of the gifts of the artists and actors involved, but also of the inventive spirit and imagination of Thornton Wilder.” — _"The Georgetowner":http://www.georgetowner.com/articles/2013/feb/04/our-town-75-years-still-yours-and-mine/ _
“Fresh and exciting! Director Stephen Rayne works his magic here by capturing the production’s enduring strength—relating to and indentifying with the characters so much that they become a circle of treasured friends." — DC Theatre Scene
