Passionate. Show-stopping. Daringly over-the-top and impressively consistent in its delirious excess. The Clean House shines.New Haven Advocate

The Clean House is not, by any means, a traditional boy-meets-girl story. In fact disease, death, and dirt are among the subjects it addresses. This comedy is romantic, deeply so, but in the more arcane sense of the word: visionary, tinged with fantasy, extravagant in feeling, maybe a little nuts.The New York Times

Touching, inventive, invigoratingly compact, and luminously liquid, Eurydice reframes the ancient myth of ill-fated love to focus not on the bereaved musician but on his dead brideand on her struggle with love beyond the grave.San Francisco Chronicle
