“ RECOMMENDED Lauren Yee's In A Word will leave you in a poetic state of mind. You'll find yourself grasping for ways to describe this manic work that will ultimately fall short of the breathless experience of witnessing it. Despite that, here is my best shot: In A Word is like a flourless chocolate cake. From the outside it may not look like much, but as a sensory experience it is rich to the point of being almost too much to bear. ”— New City
“ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED … a stunningly powerful, emotionally gripping production, directed with an energetic fervor … The cast is magnificent … this current Chicago presentation follows Lauren Yee's recent productions and script revisions of her play in San Francisco, San Diego and Cleveland. It's hard to imagine this piece being in better shape than it is in this devastating Windy City production. It's a theatrical punch to the gut that will leave audiences breathless. ”— Chicago Theatre Review
