"Expertly directed by Margaret Shigeko Starbuck, the production is rich and fully realized."


"Imagine my surprise when two razor sharp female wits and one hilarious empress of 11th century Japan, trotted out saucy, a la CLUELESS banter, skillfully articulated and elegantly styled. It was clear, UNRIVALED is masterfully done."

-Gia on the Move

"A sharp, fast-moving romp in which the four actors pull it off hilariously with their perfect timing and expressive physicality...Don't miss it!"
