Whatsonstage ****

Josh Seymour’s dark, intense production is staged with chilling, thrilling precision, with Chi-San Howard providing intricately choreographed movement.
— Mark Shenton, The Stage ****
The staging involves a lot of mechanical, almost clockwork movements, which make corporeal the sense of ritual and repetition inherent in the writing of word and score. Chi-San Howard’s work in this respect is quite brilliant.
— Stephen Collins, *****
Chi-San Howard’s movement direction beautifully fuses actions, movements and words with the musical intent on Frankie Bradshaw’s clever transverse set
— Judi Herman, Jewish Renaissance ****
...plenty of the Expressionist vibe has been retained, with 25 shades of grey for costumes, robotic movement, and acting which communicates raw feelings ...
— Gary Naylor, Broadway World ****
