Pioneer Press “10 Productions That Made a Difference in 2011”
“Practice makes perfect, right? Unless, of course, you're Girl Friday Productions, which offers one production every other year. It's almost always worth the wait, as a July staging of Elmer Rice's rarely seen Street Scene demonstrated. Director Craig Johnson—who netted an Ivey Award for his directorial efforts—marshaled his enormous cast of 26 actors (and one dog) magnificently, rendering the show's kaleidoscopic and still resonant themes crisply. Sharply observed and sentimental without being maudlin, Johnson and his company created a world so palpable that one could almost feel the oppressive heat radiating off the pavement. Girl Friday's work model is an idiosyncratic one, but its periodic presence on the local theater scene has become an important one both for artists and audiences.”
