REVIEWS

"All hail a new, energetic and often very funny voice in the American theater." - Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Mensch...is a force of nature. Her tidily crafted, two-act play involves four well-drawn, very different characters. Within this mostly light-hearted play about change and maturity, she weaves threads of mystery and serious issues of family responsibility." - Louisville Courier-Journal


All Hail Hurricane Gordo premiered at Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville in March 2008 under the direction of Sean Daniels.
