Traditional Theater Review Highlights

Seattle Weekly

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)

Something’s Afoot at the New Everett Theatre: “Sweet and innocent ingenue Hope is brought to life by a radiant Cheryl Platz.” (Sam Severn, North County Outlook, April 24 2008)
