"...a standout production...not to be missed...brought to rousing life by the Mamai Theatre Company... under the emotionally astute direction of Christine McBurney.

~Andrea Simakis, Cleveland Plain Dealer

"A smart and stirring turn under Christine McBurney’s fast-paced and quietly gripping direction. An iconic piece of theater not to be missed." ~ Bob Abelman, Cleveland Jewish News


“Under Christine McBurney’s stalwart direction, all this makes absolute sense and unfolds with remarkable dexterity, speed and humor. In fact, “The Woman Hater” is thoroughly entertaining.” ~ Bob Abelman, Cleveland Jewish News


Stellar staging... beautifully directed by Christine McBurney with particular attention given to the thread of frivolity that weaves its way through the script.” ~ Bob Abelman, Cleveland Jewish News


“That this union [of Mamet and Wilde] is such a lustful, satisfying one — especially under the kinetic, knowing direction of Mamaí Theatre Company’s Christine McBurney.” ~Andrea Simakis, Cleveland Plain Dealer
