"All of the actors in Third Citizen’s production are playing to the crowd and it brings out the play’s sense of fun. …..Every step the actors take seems to be infused with a look-what-I-get-to-do energy. Every challenge becomes a new chance for greater fun and they can’t wait to wring it for all its worth."

James Wilkinson, Boston Stage Notes - As You Like It


"I saw Third Citizen's production of Hamlet last year and it was fantastic!! The acting, production, and concept was faithful to Shakespeare and refreshing!!

Adam Cool, Facebook Review - Hamlet


"Tonight's performance was fantastic! I was genuinely moved, and surprised to see the power of theater relatively undiminished even in this format."

Jo Meli, Instagram - Digital Dionysia

"...I can't wait to see what this group does next! Othello was wonderfully acted, used the space creatively, and for a show with 400-year-old spoilers, kept us on the edge of our seats!"
