 'Jason & (Medea)':

"Let it be known that there is another young, hungry troupe in town." - Chicago Critic

"A budget-minded decision to go minimalist and an intimate space has driven the company to focus on the relationships in the play ... But a small space and minimal set means audience members will be closer to the action... And by getting closer, (re)discover hopes do what the players at the Globe did: To invite the audience to imagine with them, to play with them." - New City Stage

“We asked ourselves: If we had the freedom and the resources to work on anything as artists, what would we create? We'll make 'Hamlet' happen.” - Theatre in Chicago

“Within the context of our first production, Hamlet, we are using the text to find opportunities for new explorations, unearthing some surrealist elements, but we are not straying too far from the original manuscript.” - Chicago Stage Review
