"This production is expertly directed by new OSF artistic director Nataki Garrett, who helps make this story come alive in such a vibrant and realistic manner."

SISKIYOU DAILY

"Director Nataki Garrett presents each of the characters in this same, take-it-or leave-it approach to the text that is emotionally gripping yet tender. She charges each scene with unexpected appearances through swinging doors and quick set changes in color and silhouette to suggest that the stakes in Creation are always high."

"It’s a fascinating comedic matrix that “An Octoroon” constructs, enlivened by Jacobs­-Jenkins’s ear for absurdity and director Nataki Garrett’s sure-handed production for Woolly Mammoth Theatre."

"But it would not be fair to this terrific play — which is directed like it’s an open-heart emergency by Nataki Garrett — to see it merely as conversational or reactive. There is a deep longing for connection in the writing — a touching romanticism, actually, and the whole play often feels like a cry for the urban world to just be kinder and better and easier."

CHICAGO TRIBUNE

 

"The audience response is so alive... That’s how engaging the characters are, and how loose and free the cast is in the vibrant staging by Nataki Garrett, who directed the Chicago premiere."

"In Will Power’s play... the weaving of narratives of these two very different men, along with a few other crucial characters in their orbits, brings a stark new reality into focus about who they were. The Dallas Theater Center’s production, directed by Nataki Garrett, presents the thematically layered, thought-provoking plot with style and potency."

"One of the play's strengths is the dialogue, which has a pow-pow-pow of emotional boxing under Nataki Garrett's charged direction."
