"...alluring and wondrous...a beautiful revival..."
“I know people who can’t watch or listen to The Fantasticks because of the rape plan and the rape attempt…this is a strong enough revival…that the very un-PC section doesn’t pull the show down. Indeed, the play’s journey into disillusion is amplified by the cast’s early comic abandon.”
"Boulanger's work does justice to THE FANTASTICKS in every way..."
"Director Susan Boulanger's cast delivers a truly impassioned reading of this tale-with-music."

"Boulanger's staging...keeps this version of Hedda Gabler a tasteful tragedy of misguided passions and impending madness...The staging of the classic shows the full force of a woman out of balance."
Orange Country Register
"[The production] under the direction of Susan Boulanger very handily captures this distinctly British combination of sophisticated wit, mixed heavily with downright silliness..."
"In a quite effective collaboration, author, director and cast combine successfully to make us laugh out loud while our awareness and concerns are being prodded and challenged."
"Under the dedicated direction of Susan Boulanger...the strong cast of disciplined, accomplished actors strikes a collective chord and achieves synergy...establishing the vibrant push/pull rhythm that makes Master's Spoon River Anthology the masterpiece that it is."
