February, 2017 Thanks so much to Lew J. Whittington from The Huffington Post for the wonderful review and kind words: "Stephanie Iozzia keeps a razor sharp disillusioned Masha and plays one of the best comic drunk scenes of this or any other season."
"'I’m in mourning for my life' intones Masha (played with seething cynicism by Stephanie Iozzia)..." Thanks to Kathryn Osenlund from Phindie for the lovely review and words: "Astute casting has resulted in a stage populated by skilled actors who know how to build a character. Chekhov’s eccentrics shine anew...Stephanie Iozzia’s Masha..."
Thanks to Tim Dunleavy from DC Metro Theater Arts for the great review and words: "Savadove’s production emphasizes the humor in Schmidt’s translation, much of it supplied by...Iozzia’s glowering, black-clad Masha."
Another lovely review of The Seagull, for The Philadelphia Inquirer through Philly.com here! Thanks to Toby Zinman.

"Challenging, inspired, uniquely entertaining, and affecting, the unmatched artistry of Found Theater Company’s ensemble-devised experimental performance bombarded our senses, eliciting immediate visceral responses and profound cerebral reflections. The haunting sound and music of the company’s indelible signature style transported us to an alternate reality in exquisite dreamlike fragments by the performers/creators/co-directors, who skillfully fashioned an intriguing, perplexing, illusory world. This is the epitome of true ensemble work, with each member contributing equally and immensely."
