LA Times Critics Pick! directed with controlled spunk by May Adrales

LA Times

Under the dynamic direction of May Adrales.

LA Times

The whole Manhattan Theatre Club production, from its outstanding ensemble to its resourceful director, May Adrales, is in perfect synch with Nguyen’s deranged yet heartfelt vision.

The New Yorker

“Vietgone” has many pleasures — including jazzy comic performances from an excellent cast, several in multiple roles, under May Adrales’s direction.

The New York Times

Top Ten of 2016!  May Adrales’s high-octane staging moves so swiftly and surely, you may not initially appreciate the buckets of ​stagecraft she & Nguyen throw at us scene after scene. In design and pacing, the production ransacks the aesthetics of comix and grind house, applying their flashy framing & penchant for sex, drugs and violence to a dead-serious story of war, displacement & assimilation.
