“From creating music and beating on pans to screaming, crying and tearing the place apart, “Marat/Sade” will leave audience members speechless…

“A bloody and relentless representation of insanity, suffering and struggle through the eyes of those who have been rejected by society, the Department of Performing Art’s production is not to be taken lightly… Audience members beware…. The grit of this stirring production will be uncomfortable and thought provoking, so bring an open mind” –The Eagle (For the whole article, “Marat/Sade enters into the world of insanity” CLICK HERE)

“If you are an American University student and wander into Katzen Arts Center this weekend, you may hear wails of agony. Do not be alarmed. The actors scream, writhe, sing and shout their way through this perplexing play. My advice: Cover your ears. It’s about to get creepy… If you choose to dive into this twisting and twisted show, stick around till the end. Its surprising, clever and, like the show, a bit mad.” –DC Metro Theatre Arts (For the whole article, CLICK HERE)
