“Directed with a sure sense of pace by Mike Donahue”

-Rachel Saltz, New York Times (full story)

“Ms. Silverman has created a modern fairy tale, a little bad wolf whose lopsided grin reveals its crooked, bloody teeth.”

-Rachel Saltz, New York Times (full story)

“It's a credit to director Mike Donahue that the ensemble cast lend the right amount of humanity to characters that could, in different hands,

become just players on a chess board, plotting their moves. He also keeps the play's tension building, landing every punch leading up to the final

knockout image.”

-Olivia Jane Smith, New York Theatre Review (full story)

“Jen Silverman's Phoebe in Winter is one of those plays that contains so much nuance and color everyone has to be on the same page to reach maximum effect. It is to the credit of director Mike Donahue, and a clearly very smart cast and creative team, that this is accomplished in spades.”

-Molly Marinik, Theatre is Easy (full story)
