Reviews from Critics

“engaging...wonderfully creative...compelling...refreshing.”
- Emily Mendel | Berkeleyside
“Shotgun is to be applauded, however, for pulling this off with nary a technological glitch, and taking on a subject that belongs on stage now...I would come back just to see Maynez; she really is a wonder.”
- Tony Frankel | Stage and Cinema
“a stirring, thought-provoking production...very enjoyable.”
- Brother Mark 7 Theatre
“the latest production from Berkeley's ever-adventurous Shotgun Players is an agonizingly of-the-moment, tailored-for-teleconferencing commission”
- Jim Gladstone | Bay Area Reporter
“It’s a relief to see a play that doesn’t pretend not to be on Zoom. And the cast, under director Elizabeth Carter, is strong.”
- Jean Schiffman | SF Examiner

Reviews from Theatergoers

“That was an absolutely incredible theatre made a completely new flavor of art that I have never seen... with Zoom!”
“The characters were all so believable, and because it was created with Zoom in mind, it worked so well.”
“Poignant and with good balance, this piece revealed the conflicts social organizations encounter with both shifting values and public-health limitations.”
“Vero was fantastic. I can't even imagine how one gets such a real emotional performance in front of a computer screen!”
