FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED SUICIDE/WHEN THE RAINBOW IS ENUF

"Translated expertly... The movement and words are inseparable, their marriage crucial to making meaning. Watching a seated reading of the play would be like listening to a piece of music through one earphone." The Pitch

"Sublime choreography... Viscerally stimulating your visual and auditory senses while evoking deeply empathetic emotions in tandem." KC Applauds

"Remarkable...a joyous celebration." The New York Times
