What might seem the most noteworthy thing about this staging — that these are Asian- American actors playing Jewish American characters — is, in practice, unremarkable. It’s a classic American story, and that means that it belongs to all of us.

(Laura Collins-Hughes: New York Times)

In director Stephen Brown-Fried’s production, the dialogue and the play come vibrantly alive. It’s almost as if Odets’ language awakes and sings.

(Steven Suskin: Huffington Post)

Awake and Sing! is an American classic, and this most American of theatre companies does it proud.

(David Barbour: Lighting and Sound)

Clifford Odets’ Awake and Sing is as timely today as it ever was and thriveting production this company serves up proves the relevance chilling. This long-respected NAATCO gives Awake and Sing not only acting excellence, but set design, costume design, direction and a shared commitment that is palpable and exciting.

(Susan Hasho: Theater Pizzazz)
