"Director Claire Reinhart has found an exceptional group of young actresses for this play and done an admirable job of working with them to create their characters..." -Karen Topham, Chicago Onstage

"Any audience member can also appreciate the attention to detail found in the work done surrounding the actors and the script... The standout star of this production is that there aren’t any. Every actor in this show is extremely generous in how they provide stakes and obstacles for the other performers..." -Nate Hall, Picture this Post; Highly Recommended, named one of their BEST PLAYS IN CHICAGO

Clearing is one of the most incredible scripts I've ever read, and this show was one of the impactful productions I've ever worked on. Every artist involved gave so much of themselves to this show, and I'm so grateful to have been at the helm.

I directed a scene from American Triage, by Marisela Treviño Orta, for the Something Marvelous Night of New Works. I love the work Something Marvelous does- their focus on magical realism is unique and lovely.

I loved working with Vienna Juvenile Sketch Comedy- they made true, hilarious comedy, and their shows always had me laughing.
