"It is a no frills celebration of women in the theater, and I applaud Echo Theater Company for creating this opportunity for so many female playwrights, female directors, and actresses."
"One word of caution, there is a significant degree of strong profanity in some of these shows so I would keep the young and sensitive at home. That said I will hasten to add that each show is well written and well performed and very much entertaining each in their own unique way."
