REVIEWS OF INTERROGATION



The Washington Post says that Interrogation provides “an unsettling view of reality.”

Staff pick at DC Theatre Scene. “Feffer’s familiarity with Capital Fringe is apparent, and he uses this knowledge to make the work truly immersive,” writes John Bavoso. “It’s a show that makes you uncomfortable, makes you think (both about government surveillance and the nature of being a theatre-goer), and keeps you on the edge of your seat.”

Five stars and Pick of the Fringe from DCMTA. Yvonne French says, “Interrogation is a deftly told dark comedy about a serious and timely subject that immerses the audience completely in its creative story.” Warning: some spoilers in the review….

REVIEWS OF THE POLITICIAN

Five stars and Best of Fringe from DC Metro Theater Arts

DC Broadway World calls The Politician a brilliant mix of theater and politics. “Go, just go….”

Hill Rag calls The Politician “another highly satisfying satire that condemns the Beltway life while resting snugly inside of it” with “a fantastic ensemble cast, whose members change roles more often than people in Washington change opinion.”

Women Around Town says “The Politician shows us what happens when the cameras stop rolling. You’ll never watch a talking head again without thinking of this play. If you missed last year’s The Pundit, don’t miss The Politician.”

Washington Speaks: The Politician “scores a big win.”
