New York Times Review: ‘Pity in History’

Solidly anchored by Mr. Dykes and Mr. Tindle in comic performances veined with sympathy, this production proves the piece’s merit for the stage.Laura Collins-Hughes, New York Times

Onstage Blog Review: ‘Arcadia’

She[Cheryl Faraone] has managed to tap deeply into the playfulness of Stoppard’s script.  Audience members should not try too hard to “figure out” what Stoppard has already researched and written. Focus, instead, needs to be placed on the “game” of the play itself, its dance, its waltz, its fun. And Cheryl Faraone has understood that game and its rules with consummate insight and skill. It is always a pleasure to witness her vision take shape on the stage.David Roberts, Onstage Blog

TimeOut New York Review: ‘The Castle’

Shakespearean in scope, Brechtian in attitude and Jacobean in sensibility—one stroke of pitch-black comedy finds a woman condemned to drag around the rotting corpse of the man she has murdered—The Castle is a scabrous masterwork.Adam Feldman, TimeOut New York

TimeOut New York Review: ‘No End of Blame’

The cast, many of them recent Middlebury College graduates, impress consistently, perhaps because they follow Draper’s lead: Along with Christopher Duva, who plays Bela’s not-so-constant companion, he offers a course in boldly drawn character.Helen Shaw, TimeOut New Nork

Director Cheryl Faraone, Potomac’s co-artistic director, has staged things fluidly: Actors simply rearrange chairs and other furniture to suggest varied locales. The Potomac Theatre Project is a welcome addition to the New York theatre scene.Ron Cohen, Backstage
