Published Reviews

It is well-acted, beautifully produced, and features a love story that will send you out of the theater with a renewed sense of life’s possibilities.

-Sophia Howes, 1st Stage, Tysons, Virginia.

Full of mystery and magic with amusing comic touches, 1st Stage has produced a superior production of “Secret Things,” by award-winning playwright Elaine Romero. The appealing “Secret Things” takes a willing audience on a fascinating, time-shifting journey of discovery as a young Latinx searches for unknown ancestral roots.

-1st Stage, Tysons, Virginia.

The writing is beautiful, humorous, lyrical, and like a waking dream.

-Mary Ann Johnson, 1st Stage, Tysons, Virginia.
