THE DREAM PROJECT: "While this is technically a version of a very old play that is being presented, it gives one the feeling that it’s a completely original work of art, and that – more than anything else – is what left me impressed with this show. If I have any complaints at all, it’s that its run should have been longer, as it deserves to be seen by more theatergoers." - Anthony J. Piccione

STAGE BIZ - NOV 3, 2017

“Witty, lush play by Fengar Gael.... It's funny and intriguing...Fengar Gael has written a rich, layered text that satisfies on so many levels. It's addictive viewing as there are delicious cliff hangers and plot twists. It's marinated in humor and also offers some exquisite discourse on everything from eugenics to gender parity. Your right and left brain gets lit up like an overachieving Christmas tree.” -Jaci de Villiers 

“A gifted cast prickled our imaginations with their focused performances...Director, Katie McHugh has crafted a stunning production. The show is slick, attention grabbing and memorable. She keeps the tension line going throughout with a great pace and acute attention to performance detail...a truly entertaining and thought-provoking production.” -Jaci de Villiers

MY ENTERTAINMENT WORLD - NOV 7, 2017

“The splendidly peculiar Argonne and Flourine are two of the most bewitching characters I have seen in recent theatre. Simultaneously disturbing and riotous, Gael has crafted two characters who are intoxicating in their paradox. An air of comfortable disquiet laces their words. An uneasy joviality pervades the air. Their words and graces are charming yet off-putting. I could spend days with the Seaborgs and never get bored.” -Theresa Perkins

THE READING SALON - NOV 7, 2017

The House on Poe Street by Fengar Gael, directed by Katie McHugh is a sharp, witty escapade through an incredibly wide range of topics including chemistry, poetry, the occult, privilege, and gender bending...The twin “sisters”, Fluorine & Argonne, played by Eliza Shea and Olivia Nice, are wonderful to watch as they lure the hapless male characters into their experiment(s). If you have even the slightest interest in science or Poe’s poetry, you’ll delight in the intelligent discourse.” -Raymond Helkio

HI! DRAMA - NOV 11, 2017

“The actors were so compelling...the characters were fascinating... Pei-Wen Huang-Shea did a marvelous job of creating a set that was creepy and filled with Poe-like objects. Alice Geaccone’s costumes would have made Morticia queen of the runway. Robert Gonyo’s sound design contributed to the atmosphere of mysterious sounds while Isaac Weisselberg’s lighting became another character.” -Eva Heinemann
