media response

DEAR VIENNA

"a theatrical triumph on all counts. Lovingly delivered" … "Hamberg maintained just the right balance of seriousness and buffoonery.” 

MADONNA AND CHILD AND OTHER DIVAS

"often-extraordinary acting and genuinely touching and thought-provoking moments"

IDIOT'S DELIGHT

“Hamberg and her gifted ensemble get all the laughs honestly…slowly revealing the play’s warm and hopeful heart.”

DUCKS CROSSING

"Every aspect of the production is pretty much flawless"

"Ducks Crossing is the feel-good must-see comedy this town’s been waiting for."

RAIN FROM HEAVEN

"Reckless Theatre's revival, staged by Julie Hamberg, demonstrates that Behrman’s low-key approach deserves another look.”
