"A fresh new comedy with a sharp cultural bite."LA Times
"Comic nirvana...the show [has] an uncommon comic electricity, an aliveness to the present moment that’s only possible in live theater."San Francisco Chronicle
"A well-polished romp...Yoga Play is that welcome commodity, a fresh new comedy with a sharp cultural bite that may be educational as well as entertaining."LA Times
"Rollicking...Yoga Play is like a good class. One departs revitalized."Orange County Register
"Yoga Play touches intelligently on important themes such as cultural appropriation, exploitation, consumerism, fat shaming, and workplace abuse. But don’t expect an earnest evening of politically correct theatre. Sure, Yoga Play will encourage you to think, but mostly, it’s about making you laugh."Charles Kruger, Theatrestorm
