"[A]n evening of electric theater...Hannah Knapp is an incandescent Nina...The brilliant ensemble company [brings] this seminal classic to vibrant life."
- Susan Steinberg, The Independent, November 2008

"Bouncing breathlessly onto the stage, Hannah Knapp is a totally new Nina: radiant, effervescent, and bursting with youthful enthusiasm...She is truly a breath of fresh air...A richer, deeper theatrical presentation reveals new insights and increases an appreciation of Chekhov’s masterful grasp of human character."
- Susan Steinberg, The Independent, July 2009
