REVIEWS

[BEST BET] "Nylon is a rare treat. This is intimate black (or in this case white) box theatre at its best. It’s a joy to watch this excellent five-person ensemble up close and personal… Director Knud Adams wisely makes the experience an uber-intimate one by cutting the TheaterLab space in half, thereby creating an extremely shallow playing space. The piece feels less like a play and more like an examination of five characters under a microscope.”
Ken Kaissar, Theater is Easy

[★★★★] "Like flies on the wall to both aggressive and tender moments, what director Knud Adams achieves is mirroring in the audience a similar feeling of suffocation and inescapable angst that our protagonist Anna is grappling with on stage.”
Nicole Cardoni, Plays to See

"Directed by Knud Adams, Sofia Alvarez’s “Nylon” — evidently a response, at least in part, to Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” — is so simmeringly alive in its opening scene that we invest in these characters immediately… Mr. Adams, a smart and inventive director.”
Laura Collins-Hughes, New York Times
