"Besides the material itself, Center REP's production owes much of its success to director-choreographer Mindy Cooper . . ."
"Brava to Mindy Cooper who not only directs this rapid paced show but choreographs as well."
"It’s wild, it’s inventive. It’s everything you’ve ever dreamed. . . . Mindy Cooper directs with ferocity."
"We laughed all day long in rehearsals. This was a dream cast and also a wonderful team of collaborators. I couldn't wait to get to work to see what we would come up with, and then couldn't wait to show it to the team."
