Repertory - Greatest Hits - An American Rendition

An American Rendition was voted one of the top ten performances of 2008 by both Thirteen WNET and Gay City News. Check out reviews from the New York Times, Village Voice, Backstage, WNYC Arts, and the Star Ledger.

“An American Rendition is dark, biting satire of the ilk that's so brilliantly constructed that it makes you laugh out loud while feeling almost sick inside as you gradually realize the true horror of what you're laughing at....Comfort's work was extremely well-served by her seven-member troupe of performers, all of whom are excellent actors."
