Extra! Extra! Responses to Mouthpiece from the Road
Here's what audiences and critics were saying about Mouthpiece on the first leg of our 2016 National Tour...
*"Mouthpiece a Masterpiece. Provocative and relevant, funny and horrifying, universal yet highly individualized, and deals beautifully with ugly issues. One of the strongest performances I’ve seen in Ottawa."
*"It is superbly written and performed and cuts to the heart of the confusions inherent in being. It is an exploration of the mind, and of what “being a woman” means in our current context. It is entertaining and provocative. It deserves attention."
- Apt 613 Ottawa
*"The show speaks and moves on its own merit, and hardly needs my approval to stand as a magnificent piece of theatre.This story needs to be told, and Mouthpiece tells it with spectacular and vivid power."
*"What Nostbakken and Sadava have created and performed is a sophisticated, nuanced, complex portrait of the woman's voice. It offers an incisive, humorous, thoughtful, afflictive telling of a narrative that is undeniably true, yet criminally underrepresented."
*"A pulsing, energetic and physical piece of theatre that is thoroughly absorbing and entertaining."
*"It hurtled along lightly at top speed, and never stopped being engaging, skeptical, self-critical."
- Edmonton Journal (Liz Nicholls)
