"Designers Peter Ksander and Miranda Hardy create a dead-sexy, hip-high maze... Jahnke is right to play Artaud as a mood piece." - Time Out NY

"Jahnke's sensational production bursts with an abundance of thrilling theatrical ideas..." - The Gothamist

"Jahnke has a painter's eye for creating stunning stage pictures... Peter Ksander's set is impressive... Miranda K. Hardy's lighting design is beautiful. " -

"...gorgeously formalized blocking, haunting tableaux... make the pulse race in a sort of slasher film-like way." - Theatermania

"There is much to admire in this new production, including Richard Sieburth's clever new translation; Kristin Worrall's densely layered and sophisticated sound design; Peter Ksander's simultaneously spare and complex set; Jahnke's elaborate and fluid staging; and compelling performances from a skilled and beautiful cast." - Off Off Online
