They love us! They really do!

  • "[Gift of the Magi] is sweet without ever being over sentimental or cloying. Laughs abound – especially in the final scene. You’ll leaving humming a carol or two and resolving to be a better person – a worthwhile gift indeed."

    Patty NolanDetroit Theater Examiner
  • ""This Wonderful Life" is theater at its best, to be seen, savored and seen again. Lepard is that good."

    Dan SkoraNew Monitor
  • "[Driving Miss Daisy is] a play that traffics in small-but-significant gestures, has demonstrated that Performance Network Theatre is back in a big way, artistically speaking."

    Jenn McKeeMLive
  • "[Casaundra] Freeman and [Jonathan] West have delivered memorable performances in the past, but under director Lynch Travis, they reach career-topping heights."

    John MonaghanDetroit Free Press
  • "Just 10 months after the financially struggling Performance Network abruptly closed its doors, the Ann Arbor theater is back where it belongs. "Stones in His Pockets," the fifth production from a new creative team, is a showcase for some of the area's best onstage and behind-the-scenes talent."

    John MonaghanDetroit Free Press
  • "At first, “Salvage” seems to be a conventional albeit entertaining tale about two offbeat people who find salvation in each other, but fans of Joe Zettelmaier know his plays are never that predictable. Without ruining any surprises, suffice it to say the ensuing plot twist — or more accurately, corkscrew — is such that I never saw it coming."

    Ronelle GrierThe Oakland Press
  • "As the liberal daughter Brooke, Leah Smith is a natural, as if playwright Baitz had written the role with her in mind. [...] “Other Desert Cities” is a wonderful play, and Performance Network’s production of it is well-worth the price of admission."
