“What I hope is coming: more work from Schreck. She’s shown a willingness to crack open the earth’s crust and tap the undersoul.” — New York Magazine

“We’re blessed with any number of highly talented stage directors. But the one most catching our eye these days—whose name attached to a show most warms us with optimism—is the quietly intrepid Ken Rus Schmoll.“ — The Village Voice
