“A terrific show that captures the complexity of living in the strange city.”
Byrne Harrison, StageBuzz

“The writers of the show, Edward McWilliams with D’Janau Morales, Reynaldo (Bamboo MC) Melendez, David Scott and Daniel Silber-Baker, have a real gift for capturing the language of the city and heightening it with poetry, while keeping it from ever sounding artificial.”

Byrne Harrison, StageBuzz

“The cast of Underground is uniformly strong and each has a chance to shine in this play.”

Byrne Harrison, StageBuzz
