-BROADWAY WORLD

“This production of GOOD PEOPLE is a winner! The entire cast could not be better! They are all exceptional! It feels and looks like a play on Broadway (Direction by Michael Matthews and set by Jimmy Cuomo). Can’t remember the last time we have seen a production of this quality in the desert. It is most definitely one of our FEATURED events. GO!”

-PERFORMING ARTS LIVE

“Good People,” is intelligently and sensitively staged by director Michael Matthews.”

-DESERT STAR NEWS

“The show’s guest director, Michael Matthews, has brilliantly aimed this script directly at your brain pan. Its gritty reality is played out, giving the audience a being-there feeling that never wavers. The dialogue is cleverly “telescoped” so that Matthews’ actors appear truly spontaneous, and it gives the show a spirit of breathless anticipation.”

-CV INDEPENDANT

“Michael Matthews’ direction takes this script to the next level of wonderful.  The seamless blocking utilizes the space and keeps the action flowing between scenes like a choreographed ballet.”

-COACHELLA VALLEY WEEKLY

“Under the sharp, skillful and inventive direction of Michael Matthews, GOOD PEOPLE, written by the extremely talented David Lindsay-Abaire, provides one of the most entertaining, stimulating and emotionally satisfying evening of theatre I have seen in some time.”
