"McCraney’s plays are filled with lyrical, transcendent arias; their delivery here is magical."
"Gobel’s actors — all doing excellent work — never let us forget the godlike men beneath the masks."
“(a) historic, landmark production”
"Muwonge’s Oshoosi can seem like a punk. But Muwonge simultaneously suggests a sensitive and romantic dreamer, filled with a love reflecting his belief in a better world."
"Gobel has a poet’s sense of language, and she’s attracted to playwrights and productions that feature it. We are incredibly lucky that this extraordinary artist makes her home in Milwaukee."
Gwen Rice, OnMilwaukee
"Chamber's 'Brothers Size' is a stunning accomplishment for all involved"
"Amazing performers take audiences on an epic journey. You've never seen a show like this before.”
"A fierce and smart performer in her own right, Gobel literally choreographs 'The Brothers Size' in a way that feels striking and magical, with a story that's both culturally specific and painfully universal.”
"As Ogun, Travis A. Knight is strong and formidable, both physically and emotionally."
Harry Cherkinian, Shepherd Express
"This taut, powerful production grips the audience from start to finish."
"as the suave, smooth Elegba, Marques Causey is fascinating to watch, a streetwise “serpent” in a gritty Garden of Eden."
"Knight conveys every detailed nuance, verbal and non verbal, of a man in great inner turmoil, trapped by his own responsibility and need to connect to his last remaining family member."
"'The Brothers Size' upsets expectations"
"Lighting designer Jason Fassl pointedly blinds us at times with spotlights facing into the action like human observers.'
"Travis A. Knight is a true stage leader, quietly smart in how he reflects Ogun’s internal control, stronger than even he realizes and then stunningly angry when offended."
“’The Brothers Size’ is speaking volumes.”
