“UNEARTHING THE ROLE OF GAY BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICAN HISTORY IS A CRUCIAL PROPOSITION. I WAS MOVED BY MR. LOVE’S WILLINGNESS TO IMAGINE OTHER KINDS OF LIVES THAN THE ONES THAT HISTORY BOOKS OFFER! EMBODIED BY THE FINE PERFORMERS HERE, THOSE LIVES REALLY DO SEEM ALIVE. KHRIS DAVIS IS EXHILARATING & HEARTBREAKING. THE LANGUAGE IS RICH & FASCINATING.”
— Jesse Green, The New York Times

“DEWANDA WISE GIVES AN ELECTRICALLY CHARGED PERFORMANCE. HER BODY CONTAINS A WHOLE HISTORY OF LIFE BEFORE WALLS, BEFORE CAGES, BEFORE DEPENDENCE. THIS IS LANGUAGE AS LUSH CATHARSIS, LANGUAGE AS EMPOWERMENT. IT FEELS LIKE GOING TO CHURCH.

— Sara Holdren, New York Magazine
