"In true pulp fashion, Jarcho and director Knud Adams are in thrall to their cinematic inspirations, and there are enough training montages (à la Nikita) set to pulsing German pop (à la Run Lola Run) to content the fiercest heart."
–Time Out New York on EVERY ANGEL IS BRUTAL
"Directed with apparent glee by Knud Adams... Played with taut energy by the excellent ensemble."
–New York Theatre Review on EVERY ANGEL IS BRUTAL
"Director Knud Adams keeps the elements of past and present, multiple settings, and many characters in balance for this production successfully. The transitions are seamless and flowing."
–In the Spotlight on MY JANE
"Knud Adams has given the play ease and flow... a spendid foray into the craft of theater combined with the depth of the classics."
–Berkshire Bright Focus on MY JANE
"The two paths converge in a theatrical prism – a keenly observed, hugely entertaining adventure in the Book World."
–Valley Advocate on MY JANE
"Adams' choreography of physical shifts for his actors was in tune to the poetry of his playwright’s text. Adams capitalized on the power of body language. It told the story stronger than you could imagine."
–Theater in the Now on TOM & ELIZA
"Delicately directed by Knud Adams, all of Song’s bleak humor and rapid dialogue converges into an engrossing and intimate experience."
–Theatre is Easy on TOM & ELIZA
"Directed and designed with a tight focus by Knud Adams, Adams leaves no room for the audience to check out of the story."
–New York Theatre Review on TOM & ELIZA
"Director Knud Adams stages the hospital scenes with carefully observed realism... Martin’s “Typhoid Mary” memories grow increasingly surreal as his symptoms turn worse. Knud stages these moments with heightened theatricality, culminating in the climatic final tableau."
–Theater Online on AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH TYPHOID MARY
"As surprisingly tender as it is eerie."
–Theater is Easy on AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH TYPHOID MARY
"The real triumph of An Intimate Evening with Typhoid Mary was the production design. Director Knud Adams organized a strong team to lift the script onto the stage."
–Theater in the Now on AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH TYPHOID MARY
"As directed by Knud Adams, a director with enormous talent, this double-bill performance is seemingly staged effortlessly, fluidly moving from solo, trios and duets on the theme of love, then suddenly transforming into the late night game show without missing a beat. The performances are top notch across the board."
–New York Theatre Review on LOVEPLAY/PLAYMONEY
“A lovely production. Thanks to Knud Adams' well-conceived and executed staging and a winning ensemble, the play is tremendously affecting and also extremely funny.”
–CurtainUp on BODY AWARENESS
★★★★★ "An engrossing and polished revival... Adams demonstrates an acute empathy with Baker's work with this sweet and loving production."
–Examiner.com on BODY AWARENESS
"It is the perfect intimate venue for this fine production, directed by Knud Adams. He has assembled a heart-breakingly perfect cast who bring these quirky characters warmly to life on Travis A. George’s beautiful all white set, neatly framed, and reframed, in blonde wood. You can smell Joyce’s 'winter soup' simmering on the stove."
–Berkshire On Stage on BODY AWARENESS
"Through the astute direction of Knud Adams, the idiosyncrasies’ of each of the characters are unveiled, mostly with kindness and understanding, and always with humor."
–In the Spotlight on BODY AWARENESS
"Knud Adams’ production is nicely balanced, allowing the playwright’s multiple ambiguities to just be. I particularly admired his willingness to draw out the pauses in conversations until just past the point of discomfort—which is where the characters in this play live."
–Valley Advocate on BODY AWARENESS
"Knud Adams has given a rhythm to the internal rhyme scheme of Baker’s plot. She has provided the Christmas tree-like bones of the play with some nice conversational decorations, but Adams has woven in the lights and colors with his clever juxtapositions of people and props."
–Berkshire Bright Focus on BODY AWARENESS
"Adams and his team do a brilliant job of creating a textured and detailed setting that utterly transports us out of one of the empty white boxes at Theatrelab on 14th street... Sharp writing and direction distinguish Adams as one to watch in the indie theater circuit, and hopefully beyond."
–Uptown Flavor on CHILDREN OF THE FUTURE AGE
"Children of the Future Age is meant to be enjoyed as a unique, multi-level, theatrical experience. With very limited seating running along the perimeter of the space, being in the audience feels like sitting inside of an art installation. You are in the characters’ apartment, right in their private space as they fight, get hurt and get inspired... Buy a ticket in advance and catch it while you can."
–NYTheatre on CHILDREN OF THE FUTURE AGE
"Using the confines of the black-box 13th Street Theater to maximum advantage, director Knud Adams added elements all too familiar to New Yorkers conversant with the Occupy Wall Street protests.
"The final tableau was radically altered, with the bullfighters' parade nixed in favor of a ballet dancer representing an avatar of Death. The confrontation outside the bullring was staged as a sort of last-ditch attempt at couples counselling. José brought out folding chairs, and he and Carmen sat down on opposite sides of a cheap Persian rug to hash out their differences. However, the final confrontation and murder detonated with explosive force."
–Superconductor on CARMEN
"The ensemble work is effective and well rehearsed with each individual blending with the others while still maintaining the strength of each individual character. The choreography is exciting and integrated smoothly into the story... Artfully directed by Knud Adams, there is never a lapse of momentum or focus."
–Woman Around Town on CARMEN
