Praise for Urban Theatre Movement:
REPLICA
"The play itself is the star of the evening."
- Stage and Cinema

M'S PAMPHLET
"Sean E. Zilke's new play is at once an indictment of the animalistic horrors committed by the human race and, adversely, the unbreakable bonds of a loving family." ------ Huffington Post

HANDBALL
"Mr. Rosenfeld offers a series of unexpectedly sympathetic portraits After the first few scenes, the audience began to laugh and answer back, cheering or rejecting the ----characters' choices."
- The New York Times, about HANDBALL at Summer Stage 2014

SHORT EYES
"Profane, funny, and packed with more crotch-grabbing than vintage Madonna, the current revival of Miguel PiƱero's prison drama "Short Eyes" at the Los Angeles Theatre Center burns with vivid life."  LA Times Theater
