Queen C Reviews
Chicago Reader- Not Recommended
"...Every Trap Door production I've seen is distinguished by fierce, fully committed, in-your-face acting, and this one's no different. Usually this passionate delivery is enough to lift even wanting material, but not this time. While the queen's desire not to be defined by others-whether by gender, sexual preference, or in any other way-rings true and is of the moment, there's a shrill, portentous tone to this text that even this talented cast can't overcome. The use of video is also distracting. The play seems more confused about its identity than the queen herself."
Around The Town Chicago- Recommended
"...The play is sparse in action, although Mejia provides plenty of movement. David Hackston’s translation gives each character’s poetry a distinct voice, although the plastic masks the actors are wearing oblige them to shout more than serves some of their moments. Still, the play provides a lot of fun ideas to toy with."
