reviews. 

 

"Director-choreographer Donna Marie Baratta stages with invention and fluidity on Jennifer Goodman and Laura Gardner's smart set of recombining sections of benches and chain-link fence. Baratta elicits sharp work from the committed six-person cast, all making their New York debuts." -  Erik Haagnsen (Backstage)

 

"...sexy and whimsical dances, choreographed by Donna Marie Baratta, who also directs. Standout numbers include "Bathhouse Tango," performed by the men in the cast, and "The Price of Nice," which depicts Michael's exposure to HIV in a manner both titillating and disturbing." -  Dan Bacalzo (Theater Mania)

 

"Director/choreographer Donna Marie Baratta highlights the emotional and dramatic heart." - Paula Citron (Classical 96.3)

"This fully staged chamber musical, imaginatively directed and choreographed by Donna Marie Baratta, seems primed for a professional run." -  Christopher Hoile (NOW Magazine)

"Living With Henry is a drama but is never heavy handed. There are a lot of funny moments but the script never goes for the cheap laugh. The songs blend seamlessly with the dialogue and are there to move the story forward. It all works together perfectly. Really well written, well directed, and perfectly performed by a strong cast. Definitely worth seeing." -  Sam Mooney (Mooney On Theatre)
