  • "Love Lies & Language" | The Importance of Being Earnest/ Loveliest Afternoon of the Year/The Bald Soprano
    "I just wanted to thank you again for the plays. They were really good...They came together so nicely. It was outstanding."G. P. G., Patron
    "I enjoyed your last presentation of the 3 plays. The last time I read 'The Importance of Being Earnest' was in college 50 years ago! It's sort of stupid but delightful. Your cast was excellent. You did a great job of adapting it to a condensed form. ['The Loviest Afternoon of the Year'] was quixotic, quirky, complicated. I like the two characters. They were totally engaging. The backdrop was exceptional. I enjoyed staring at it in between performances. As for the last play 'The Bald Soprano', what can I say? I think we need to be challenged every once in a while. Strangely, I enjoyed it. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I admire your spirit and dedication to drama."T. T., Actor and Patron

Thanks for making me laugh!"B. S., Actor and Patron
    "About 'Noon'- I really enjoyed it and thought your work was charming. If anything, I think maybe McNally's script is a little bit stiff/dated now - makes me wonder how his other work will hold up to the test of time.....Looking forward to seeing more of your work!"L.

T., Editor of Asian American Theatre Revue & Co-founder of Pork Filled Players

    "Thank you very much. we enjoyed the reading [Kimberly Akimbo] a lot. I think it would be fun to see a full production of it someday."D. I., Actor and Patron

    "Congratulations on the reading of Defiance. What a great cast you put together."A. J., Patron
    "I just thought I'd send you a note to say how much I enjoyed the Defiance performance. I thought Scott Plusquellec and Geoffery Simmons were great, and I especially enjoyed Austin Farwell's characterization of the Chaplain. I'd love to see the fully staged performance and think the message is compelling and would be interesting to the Seattle audience."R. S., Patron
    "I have been meaning to email you per the Sunset Limited experience...I just wanted to say what a profound performance given by both of you actors. I really appreciated being able to see a remarkable script given such animation. And, I do think the more minimalistic reading mounting actually aided the focus and intensity. Thanks so much for that performance...and please extend my appreciation to your partner on stage that day - he was great."C. J., Patron

  • A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur | A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur
    "I saw the performance of "A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur" and enjoyed it very much. (Wednesday - October 19, 2000) It was small, intimate audience and I enjoyed the performance of the actress's immensely. Kathy Hsieh affected an excellent Southern Bell attitude and accent, enjoying her "Starry Eyed" portrayal. Like wise Jo Anne Buchanan brought off the German characterization excellently and I enjoyed the intensity of her dialog. Creating a character to dislike is always a creative fine line, Rebecca Goldberg portrayed the characters insincerity very sincerely. Marie Rubin did except the challenge of the part and moved one to feel her despair the makeup added very well to this feeling. Thank you very much for sharing with me an enjoyable evening's performance."T. E., Patron

    "I caught your show Friday night. It was terrific. (The scene transitions were a hoot as well!)"S. B., 5th Avenue Theatre
    "I saw "More All in the Timimg"...loved it."C. H.-S., Patron
    "I saw your show last nite at the performance hall, very well done. I saw another later in the evening and what a difference. You looked professional, well directed, good timing, good concept; they looked amateur. Keep up the good work."C. T. M., Patron and Former WSAC Commissioner

    "Thank you for making me aware of your work! I've intended to see it in the past but it seemed that I could never get my schedule in sync. Boy am I glad I finally did. First let me say your direction of the play was elegant...I'm no expert but i love theatre. This piece in my opinion was deceptively simply in terms of organization and plot structure....but it's those deceptively simply ideas that can often go bad if the are not perfectly tuned in their presentation... It was funny and light on one hand but darkly revealing on another...So thank you and I look forward to seeing more of your work...It was a good evening!"B. T., Patron and Visual Artist
    "I am having a great time working with you all in "More All in the Timing". I'm glad to have had the opportunity to meet you and all the great people in the cast and hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the near future."D. R., Castmember

    "I just wanted to thank you for this afternoon's performance of 'Schoolhouse Rock'. What I enjoyed even more than the cast was the opportunity to reconnect that period in my life. I recall watching SHR on Saturday mornings with the feeling that the presentations were expressly for me. Oddly our teachers never referenced them and much of my school learning was flat in comparison - how could it not be - given the lack of music and movement in the typical classroom. Again, thank you."R. M., Patron

  • Closer | Closer
    "I attended your Sunday afternoon performance yesterday and was moved to write to you. I can count on my hands the number of times that I've seen a play and been completely drawn in to where I never once wandered to thoughts of "hmm, I wonder why they chose that background, or noticed a cowlick in an actors hair or this or that. Your show is spectacular on several levels. The direction is simple and each and every movement has a reason. Hats off to David Hsieh! The acting may have been the best I've seen in Seattle, and certainly on the level of the most prestigious and expensive theatre's in town, and I only paid 6 bucks! There was no time in which I saw something fake on that stage. My biggest congratulations to Angela, Gordon, Scott and Shawn for this. Thank you."J. S., Actor & Patron
    "WOW! What a wonderful show you have!...I couldn't stop talking about it when I got home. I wish my schedule allowed me to come back closing weekend to see how it changes. When I really love a play, it's exciting for me to see it grow...Thank you...Please pass along my appreciation to your cast and crew for their beautiful work...What a marvelous show. No one should miss it."T. M., Windowlight Productions
    "Congratulations on such a spectacular show last night! I was really impressed."S. N., Actor & Patron
    "It is a very fine play. A logical descedant of Strindberg and just as funny. Wicked stuff."G. B., Freelance Director & Patron
    "I enjoyed the play. You did a wonderful job, made it so simple, really and let the play speak for itself... by the end of the play, there is this great accumulative effect that holds you when you leave the theatre. Good actors, really invested emotionally in the work... I am really impressed...Good luck on the rest of the run, and I will let people, my students, etc. know."D. N., Patron and Arts Educator
    "I just wanted to say that I really enojoyed CLOSER!!!!...I caught the Sunday night performance and it was great! I hope the run is treating you well! It was a great show! Congrats!"D. A., Actor & Patron

  • The Day They Shot John Lennon | The Day They Shot John Lennon
    "I did not read any reviews or a synopsis before attending The Day They Shot John Lennon. What an incredible, eye opening drama this is. I was so very impressed with how in about 90 minutes; we (the audience) are taken in to a very real and meaningful slice of 4 different relationships. Watching this show, there were times when I was moved by the power of a message, and other times, by the sweetness and vulnerability of the human condition. I loved this show. Walking home, it made me think and feel hard about this life and the people of the world that I share it with."J. S., Patron
    "What a pleasant surprise 'The Day They Shot John Lennon' was. I anticipated a rather morose or preachy scenario and was greeted by a snapshot of humanity under an unusual circumstance. Even those who were not particulary impacted by this event can relate to the study of humanity this play provides. Funny, touching, and very accessible to ages teen and up. I really enjoyed it! Thank you!"S., Patron
    "I was drawn into the moment of the year 1980 by this excellent cast and sparkling writing. I found it accessible and intelligent, poignant and amusing. Good casting, a nice mix of situations and an ending that surprised me. Great show!"C. C., Patron
    <-- --> "I loved the show! Everyone was fantastic and I've never seen the play performed before... I'm so glad I saw it. It IS a very timely play even now in the year 2002. Great show choice! And great show!"C. P., Actor & Patron
    "I really enjoyed the piece - very well acted and a nice ensemble show."E. S., Actor & Patron
    "I enjoyed it very much... I loved watching all the characters' relationships develop, especially the old man and kid. Congrats"M. L., Actor & Patron
    "I'm glad [we] could make it to the show - it was enjoyable to watch."S. B., Patron
    "I saw the show tonight and enjoyed it... I'm thinking of coming to the late show on Saturday and bringing my husband because he's a John Lennon fan, and I know he'll get a kick out it. Besides, I want to have someone to discuss the show with afterward."E. C., Actor and Patron

Maybe it's because I'm a parent myself now, but so many things just rang louder to me than usual...the second act had some moments that literally put a chill down my spine...Rock on!

    "I saw your performance of Into the Woods last Saturday. Steven Sondheim's works are very difficult for most singers. His characters are complex. As my friends and I sat down, we made a pact to skip the second act if the first was bad. We saw the second act. Please pass on my praise to the rest of the cast and crew. Into the Woods has very many pitfalls that can plague a production. Your production avoided them all. It was an outstanding work. Everyone should be proud...Jack was mesmerizing...I was moved by the tear Jack shed when hearing of his mother's death...Consider me a fan."J. T. M., Patron.

We will certainly see it again, this time with friends in-tow, as it is such an incredible show that we want to share it with others. As a theatre buff formerly from Chicago and New York, I have seen a great many shows. Hence, I feel comfortable in saying that Barry Snarr's performance for this show was spectacular! Even while off-light Barry was in-character, and, therefore, an integral part of the ongoing/peripheral performances of the others. Another actor I wish to complement is that of Christopher J. Anderson - an incredible dancer/actor/singer whom I, personally, feel is terribly underutilized in this town. I've seen his work before, and he always delivers above expectation. Again, my compliments on a job done well! Please keep up the good work - we need more great art here in Seattle."J. D. B., Patron.

    "I recently attended The Last 5 Years with my two children, bought the soundtrack afterward and have listened to it a couple times, and I'd like to congratulate you, the cast, and crew...in presenting such a wonderful story, well-sung by Emjoy and Timothy and well-played by Mark! It is indeed a common experience to have been in a relationship that has ended, and this story was entertaining yet poignant, filled with plenty of shades of gray...like real life...I've also seen ReAct's productions of Kimberly Akimbo and The Shape of Things, which I enjoyed as much The Last 5 Years...I want to compliment you on remaining committed to your vision, continuing to stage works that matter. For a time I was the director of a nonprofit in a small town that largely didn't see the value of it's existence, so I just wanted to relay that I, for one, "get" what you do, and look forward to more great things from ReAct...Anyway, thanks for reading, thanks for the great production of The Last 5 Years, and keep up the good work. As Tavis Smiley says, 'Keep the faith!'"D. N., Patron

    "I am writing to tell you that I have recently seen Leavenworth Summer Theater's version of The Last Five Years and it doesn't hold a candle to yours. I do believe we saw your green cast...While they had a rather developed set, they had poor staging and transitions. Your play was AWESOME...You guys portrayed 'smitten' so much better...I just thought you should know." T. K., Patron
    "I saw The Last Five Years and was very impressed with the way you handled it."J. C., Actor and Patron
    "Marvelous production...Props to you guys...You've done a good job."S. V., Patron

  • You Can't Take It With You | You Can't Take It With You
    "I hope you get good houses as it is really a delightful show."B. C., Actor and Patron
    "Kudos on another great casting by ReAct. For being a 1930s play, You Can't Take It With You, truly showed how quirky American families can be and is timeless. The family quirks emphasized by ReAct couldn't have pieced together a better & crazier family: Grandpa's (Stan Asis) funny shuffle across the stage, Reba's (Rachael Ferguson) squeals & giggles—gosh are infectious, and Virginia Gabby's comedic timing as she pirouettes, bounces and bounds as Essie. How the actors playing the straight-men (Alice/Toni Rose & Tony/Eric Grimes) didn't just burst out laughing. My family and I had a wonderful time at Friday's opening :)"M. V., Patron

    "Went to see ReAct Theatre's production of Angels in America Part II: Perestroika and it was excellent. I have never seen the plays, only the HBO movies, and I wasn't quite sure how it would hold up.
    It truly showed that for theatre you don't need trap doors, flying mechanisms, or intricate sets to make it worthwhile. The simple set and staging allows for the superb writing and acting to shine through. This is what theatre is all about.
    This is a production not to be missed...run, don't walk, to ReAct's
