Ithaca Times - Up is Down: Though not a dedicated gallery, the Kitchen has a solid record of exhibiting some of Ithaca’s most ambitious painters—mostly abstractionists. Large, boldly colored pieces tend to fare best in this setting and unfortunately Zusman’s relatively quiet pieces here get lost in their surroundings.

Cornell Daily Sun - Cry it Out: Maternity and What it Means to be a Feminist: “Cry It Out was truly one of the best plays I have ever had the opportunity to see. The Kitchen Theatre has never failed to impress me, but this production in particular left me in awe. The simplicity with which they go about executing the set and costume design lends itself perfectly to a believable and ultimately heartbreaking story of motherhood, and, more deeply, womanhood.”

Ithaca Times - ‘Cry it Out’: a trip through early motherhood: “exuberantly funny, riffing on nursing and sleeplessness and the simultaneously joyful and constraining role of ‘motherhood.’…Director M. Bevin O’Gara’s production is warm, generous, funny, felt and at crucial moments very vulnerable.”

Ithaca Times - ‘Proof’ holds up: “Artistic Director M. Bevin O’Gara deftly helms the Kitchen’s profound production [Proof] centered on a blazing performance by Aila Peck as Catherine.”

Cornell Daily Sun - ‘The Two Kids That Blow Shit Up’ Thrives in Mess: “[Shannon Tyo] has this warm charisma and native wit that draws you close, and often before you notice you already care so much about her character that you’d want to laugh and cry with her. …this is also more than an “Asian story”; it is a universal story about our shared humanity, only these two humans happen to be Asian.”

Ithaca Times - “The Kitchen gives “Two Kids” a proud production, and I’d love to see other work by all the creatives.”

Ithaca Times - THE CHILDREN: Grabbing attention at Kitchen Theatre: “Astutely directed by Margarett Perry, and galvanized by three powerhouse performances, this beautiful play will haunt you long after.”
