"entirely entertaining on a gut level - funny, shocking, intense - Martin's interpretation cleaves quite close to Brecht's deconstruction of the conventions of traditional theater." - Sam Stander, The Daily Californian

"The play, full of contradictions, is funny. It's also dark and scary, and it's political" - Sally Hogarty, Contra Costa Times

"must-see, darkly-brilliant ... staged with raw, seductive power by Susannah Martin ... This production of The Threepenny Opera is worth every cent, and a whole lot more." - Mike Ward, SF Bay Times

"if you love epic theater or punk rock or you just need to get your bearing on the whole Wall Street imbroglio, get thee to Shotgun." - Karen D'Souza, San Jose Mercury News
