"SPLENDID...FASCINATING...delivers a solid, clear, lively, neon-lit and intellectually illuminating production. Director Jenn Thompson has the same firm grasp of TheaterWorks’ small stage as she did for “The Call” in 2016."
- The Hartford Courant
"FABULOUS...a DREAM TEAM OF CAST AND CREATIVES...Jenn Thompson, the director whose fresh takes on old chestnuts like Bye Bye Birdie and Oklahoma! at Goodspeed have been so refreshing, stages A Doll’s House, Part 2, and she really brings out the best in Hnath’s very contemporary script in language and tone with undercurrents of Ibsen’s classicism."
- The Westfield News
"WITTY...THOUGHT-PROVOKING...Jenn Thompson's direction serves the story well, making use of the simple staging while drawing out as much of the human emotion as possible... Ms. Thompson's direction keeps the energy and the focus high, keeping the audience riveted."
