"Deftly directed by Jenn Thomspon...the play shimmers, shines and pulsates."

"Exquisite....Excellent...Thanks to Jenn Thompson's careful direction,

we get a sense of the isolation and difficulties of life on these western homesteads."

                                                                                                                                                - The  Examiner

 

"Director Jenn Thompson’s comprehensive body of work is impressive.

Her respect for the sensitivity of the bold demands of "Abundance"

keep its action fluid. Several times I marveled at the placement she

chose – stark, perfect. Clean. No clutter. Elegant."

                                                                                                                                                       - The Arts

 

"Intimately personal...Nuanced...Under Jenn Thompson's superb direction, Abundance follows the 25-year-long friendship and travails

of two mail-order brides. 

                                                                                                                                                       - The Day

 

"Beautifully realized ...Wickedly funny..."Abundance” is richly rewarding

theatre."

                                                                                                                                            - Post Chronicle

 

"Epic...Splendid...Director Thompson does well with the storyline and pays

heed to a few welcome comedic opportunities."

                                                                                                                                         - Talkin Broadway
