WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING

I OF THE STORM I of the Storm_20

by RJ Bartholomew, performed by Richard Hoehler

“Director Janice L. Goldberg keeps the performance as visually interesting as it is emotionally and spiritually significant. Mr. Hoehler’s movements are precise, perfectly timed, and never extraneous…This stunning performance piece should be on every serious theatre-goers must see list.”    ...Theatrereviews.com

“Hoehler’s eighty-five-minute performance, insightfully directed by Janice L. Goldberg… The actor’s words tumble out in a tour de force of writing and performance, mingling straightforward narrative with rhymed verse that reads like hip-hop but isn’t played that way.”  …TheatrePizazz.com

“…a spectacular show that takes the audience on a journey of self-discovery. Richard Hoehler does a splendid job of captivating the audience through his enthralling performance.”   …BroadwayWorld.com

TRYING MEN’S SOULS

by Susan Bigelow

“Director Janice Goldberg has done an exceptional job of bringing out the plot’s deeper meaning.  Her staging, scenic transitions and directorial perspectives produce a creative journey.  Goldberg is also responsible for the triumvirate of acting perfection in this show.  Her directing presence is felt throughout out this production, adding to the inspired writing.”

LAUNDRY & BOURBON and LONE STAR  (Tulsa)

by James McClure

“Director Janice Goldberg has shaped a production that plays up to the strengths of McLure’s scripts and character dualities.  She deftly constructs an enveloping aura of contrasts:  the frenetic pre-show music of the Vietnam era versus the gentle acoustic underscoring in the opening moment of “Laundry and Bourbon”; the roaring irreverence of capricious youth versus the moderate sensibilities of experience and middle age; living under the graphic realities of foreign war and the passive living in Maynard, Texas.”

LAUNDRY & BOURBON and LONE STAR  (New York)

by James McClure

“Wes Hightower’s,(who sings with George Strait), original music serves effectively to bookend this evening of theater. Director Janice Goldberg has paced both plays well. Both she and the performers do a solid job making use of a small playing space. The talent here clearly demonstrates the extraordinary potential of this young theatre company!”
