Frances Baum Nicholson –The Stage Struck Review
Boston Court Pasadena’s Co-Artistic Director Jessica Kubzansky loves Shakespeare. That I know.

Deborah Klugman – Stage Raw
Sarah B. Mantell’s poignant play begins with a young couple capering playfully across the spare, unembellished set. Their first words are tentative; they’re the sort uttered, pretty much ubiquitously, between would-be lovers who do not know each other well. For a couple of minutes, you wonder if you’re in for a fancified rom-com about the rocky shoals coursed over by true love.
