"Alexandria Rust is a star. Her ingeniously-crafted Mabel is equal parts Disney Princess and Britney Spears, egotistical and self-aware with a lilting voice to delight the heart. In addition to a squad of sight-gag police, she commands comedy."

"These actresses show an amazing sense of unity and perfect timing, as well as grotesque carnality. They slither and writhe sinuously on the stage, hissing and scolding, a veritable squadron of "backup singers" for the avenging god of merriment."
Doug Deuchler for Oakpark.com (on The Bacchae)
"Ryan Smetana and Alexandria Rust are quite winning as the lovers at the center of the story."
