Published Reviews

"Lane [pays] homage to the broad scope of Ibsen's writing style, deftly crafting a work that delicately balances on the knife's edge between past and future, realism and proto-realism, and the spoken and unspoken."

Theatre Journal

"This masterful adaptation pares Ghosts down to its essence."
