"Faith Healing" stretches the limits of what is customarily meant by dance or drama to achieve a truly new form: a physicalized version of the play…The performances are smashing." -- The Washington Post

"Overjoyed at Comfort's achievement, I wonder what it portends when the downtown dance hit of the year is a play."
-- The Village Voice

"The five performers who make up the cast of Faith Healing are all gifted dancers. But the theater-dance piece by Jane Comfort also reveals what extraordinary actors they are. Ms. Comfort is clearly sensitive director. And she has found unusual and inspired ways to physicalize some of the central events straightforward and simple, and profoundly touching." -- The New York Times
