Published Reviews

"There's no denying Ahonen is forging a unique voice."

The New York Post

"It's the same rabble-rousing theatricality that fueled the Living Theater, that made Sam Shepard plays, especially the early ones, a theatre of brutality that electrified audiences."

Backstage

"Ahonen demonstrates a strong sense of the outlandishly ridiculous and seems a likely candidate for the comedy industry of California."

Variety

"Ahonen's talent as a playwright is very impressive."
