“Robin Larsen directs with a fine eye for detail and the careful unraveling of emotional ambiguities.” Backstage CRITIC’S PICK

“Taut psychodrama… potently brought to life at Rogue Machine… [Anderson and Cummins] inhabit the painful paradoxes of their characters with startling believability… courageous play and production.” LA Times CRITIC’S CHOICE

“Intense real-time conversation… Harrower’s script is layered with questions about attraction, second chances and life-altering actions. It’s tricky and daring…” LA Weekly GO

“Remarkable… a searing humanity and a quietly powerful urgency. Blackbird provides more proof that Rogue Machine is one of our most intelligent and vibrant theater companies.” Stage and Cinema

Blackbird is a well-rounded, high-quality production that offers a clever set, eclipsing direction, and daring performances. Watching the production is akin to the familiar but unknown anticipatory experience of listening to a new orchestration of a famous composition.”  LAist

“Powerful… gripping, surprising and utterly unforgettable.” SoCal

“The acting is superb and the writing exquisitely layered and well-plotted… It will entice conversation afterwards. Riveting material… Rogue Machine is a stellar company… keeps soaring on the wings of Blackbird.”  EyeSpyLA

“What a remarkable play it is. To all serious theatregoers, this is a must see.” Stage Happenings

“Compelling performances… daring”
