D.L. Groover, Houston Press:

"Under director Philip Hays, limitless in imagination, Men on Boats is a continuous voyage of discovery, a virtual coup de theatre in every way... Boats whirl, men thrown overboard, supplies lost when dashed on rocks. This is splendid theater."


"Grand and off-kilter, strange and soulful, epic yet intimate, it's stuffed with theatrical wonder. "

"the theatrical event of the season"


Wei-Huan Chen, Houston Chronicle:

"[the] production, directed by Philip Hays, is a great showcase of Houston's actors, featuring inventive, often physical performances..."
