"The identity question for each of us—you bring it on powerfully and evocatively."
“Surprising, touching, humorous, generous.”
“Beautiful, funny, sad, illuminating, emotional, satisfying. A tapestry of human experience and exploration of diversity.”
“The stories were amazing and very bravely written. A few scenes hit awfully close to home.”
“Comprised of life stories and ‘passages,’ Theater: A Sacred Passage attests to the bracing power of narrative to move, teach, and inspire… Rarely have these intersections among historical, social, political, cultural and personal contingencies been so movingly and provocatively realized in staged performances as they are in Sacred Passage." - Diversity, equity, and inclusion expert Gordon Nakagawa
"[The show] is a smartly-directed production which weaves 5 local theatre artists' family stories and individual dreams with larger cultural forces: economics, racism, gender discrimination, more. The acting ensemble is superb, and the project is very moving." - Beth Cleary
"The interweaving of the different stories was so well done, nothing overdone, and all reaching the same goal. The disappointments and frustrations were good to see and helpful to note that within different cultures things can be the same. The individual racial identities were evident, but the stories showed that in reaching their artistic goals these artists are really not so different." - Kathie Goodale
