Reviews

  • “A writer’s hidden life and pain enchant in ‘Sound Inside’”

    — Lily Janiak, San Francisco Chronicle Read full review

  • “I rose to my feet at the end of  'The Sound Inside.' You might do the same.”

    — Otto Coelho, TheatreStorm Read full review

  • “compelling and unpredictable from beginning to end...
    provocative…taut and memorable”

    “'The Sound Inside,' masterfully directed by Jasson Minadakis and with two outstanding performances, meets the highest theatrical standards.”

    — Cordell Reports Read full review

  • “Artistic director Jasson Minadakis gives the play a resonant staging, gently underscored by Chris Houston’s quiet piano music. Edward Haynes’ scenic design is effectively spare, with just a smattering of furniture against a black background intimately lit by Mike Post.”

    — Sam Hurwitt, Marin Independent Journal Read full review

  • “Brilliantly written, brilliantly directed, and brilliantly performed, “The Sound Inside” is a paean to human connectedness—a stunning, lovely piece of magical realism. Marin Theatre Company could not have chosen a more poignant tale to close its 2021-22 season.”

    — Barry Willis, Aisle Seat Review Read full review

  • “Jasson Minadakis directs the production with a gentle hand. Scenic designer Edward E. Haynes, Jr.’s sparce settings allow for the flexibility and shifts of memory, making the most of lighting and projection designer Mike Post’s projections which make effective use of the written words of key phrases…

    Mr. Post’s lighting is shadowy, as memories tend to be, and very effective. 

    Fumiko Bielefeldt’s costumes are perfect, and the compositions of Implied Music/Chris Houston set the proper tone without being intrusive.”
