"SOME OF OUR PARTS contains some really excellent plays. The acting is flawless! This fascinating commentary on the state of disability in America proves exactly why Theater Breaking Through Barriers is as vital as it is! - David Gordon,nytheatre.com

"People with disabilities take center stage in SOME OF OUR PARTS. Well-acted. Provocative and Moving. - Dan Bacalzo, Theatremania.com

"An eye-opening experience! SOME OF OUR PARTS is fast, heartfelt and sometimes very funny. Each play is concise. performed with spunk, determination, resilience and humor. Excellent!" - Oscar Moore, Talkentertainment.com

"Emily Chadick Weiss' Good Dancer is nicely done, telling the tale of an African-American woman named Erica (Melanie Nicholls-King) who is getting ready to introduce her boyfriend Rich (Gregg Mozgala) to her parents for the first time. His being white is not the primary concern; she's more worried that she hasn't told her parents that Rich has cerebral palsy, and walks with a slight limp. The tone of the piece is wisely kept light, even as the situation exposes fissures in the couple's relationship." - Dan Bacalzo, Theatremania.com
