-David Warner, duPont Registry (for full review click here)

Vivid Theatre Productions' Bad Jews

"The play needs a powerhouse in the part of Daphna, and this is where this production of BAD JEWS delivers...Her Daphna is like Lisa Lampanelli mixed with Bette Midler and a monster from Angus Beer's Fragment, complete with an unfettered mass of red hair. She's superb. Bigger than life, she owns the stage, imparting her will onto the others (I found myself siding with her, even though she's overwhelmingly maddening)...and I loved watching Michaels every second that she was on the stage."

-Peter Nason, BroadwayWorld (for full review click here)
