LA Times:
“Critic’s Choice: With admirable precision, clarity and comic timing director Robin Larsen and her entire cast honor Shaw’s meticulous balancing of opposing ideas and philosophies; the arguments are cogent and the jokes are funny. Just as importantly, Larsen’s staging relishes Shaw’s genius for the unexpected but entirely logical conclusions and choices to which the characters’ perspectives lead them — without allowing us easy judgments.”

“George Bernard Shaw’s once-scandalous 1893 drama “Mrs. Warren’s Profession” can be a tough nut to crack, but thanks to the steadfast guidance of director Robin Larsen and a stellar double-cast ensemble of some of the Antaeus Company’s most resolute members, the balance between the crafty old master’s droll humor and jabs at the mores of his time survives remarkably intact.”

Broadway World:
“A class act at Antaeus…George Bernard Shaw’s splendidly amusing and enlightening play with very specific, detailed direction from Robin Larsen and a stellar ensemble of actors…The entire cast is electric.”

Culture Spot LA
“A strong, able cast led by Robin Larsen’s firm direction makes George Bernard Shaw’s classic “Mrs. Warren’s Profession” a must-see!”
