Published Reviews

"Connected's strength is that it manages to be a wry commentary on the way things are now, for better or for worse, without becoming condescending. What may end up being its biggest win is its potential to spark a dialogue across all platforms--including face-to-face communication."

nytheatreguide.com

"Enthralling and accurate . . . I found myself riveted as I waited to see what would happen to the sympathetically rendered characters."

Theatre is Easy

"A fascinating look at the cyber world we live in today . . . Romeo's work plays out in four vignettes, all of which touch on themes of loneliness and deception. Alternately amusing and heart-breaking . . . an engaging work."

Broadway World

"Lia Romeo's new play is very, very good, a wry, fast-paced look at American life in the age of YouTube."
