“….any Tennessee Williams aficionado would do well to see Five by Tenn. Turtle Shell and Off The Leash are to be commended for bringing these diamonds in the rough to light.” – StageBuzz

“….a formidable Natalie E. Carter….often-compelling misery…impressive production values.”  – Back Stage

“….a sharp rendition of Hello From Bertha, featuring an electrifying Kay Bailey…charismatic Natalie E. Carter milking the most out of the sham seer center stage, it’s got enough bravura showmanship and self-delusion to qualify as pure Williams.” – New York Magazine

“…an impressive performance by Natalie E. Carter, as Mother DuClos, who sings, chants and communes with spirits in the world beyond…Rebecca Street is convincing as Mrs. Hardwicke-Moore” – New York Theatre Wire
