Press Reviews

"Kristin Brownstone as Martha [is]superb getting into those spirited debates, fights, struggles with such relish the audience is sucked in within the first few lines of dialogue. There's not a moment when she's onstage, boozy, blousy and with pulchritude aplenty, that the audience isn't watching her.”

Joanne Engelhardt, "San Jose Mercury News" (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf)
