Traditional Theater Review Highlights
September Skies: “But because the writing is taut, witty, and true, and the performances sterling, what might have been a bad TV movie-of-the-week is instead a study in how desperately we flail for what we want during these few short years we call life.” (Seattle Weekly – pick of the week)
Capitol Hill Times
September Skies: “In terms of the acting, the show is well played. Foubert and Platz work well together and offer a natural delivery that is engaging and believable. They manage to make the audience believe in the otherwise unbelievable development of their affair.” (Capitol Hill Times)
