“[Men on Boats is marvelously destabilizing both as history and theater. The stalwartness and selfishness of the adventurers—their cockiness and cluelessness—become biting satire when sent up by women.”
—New York Magazine
CRITIC’S PICK! “[a] rollicking history pageant…. Men on Boats starts from the realization that we can never recreate exactly how it was. This play’s perspective is that of a contemporary reader filtering accounts of another age through her own latter-day sensibility…It’s not unlike what Lin-Manuel Miranda is doing in his splendid hip-hop musical Hamilton.”
— Ben Brantley, New York Times
