"Director Julia Sears (who co-conceived the worthy project with Maggie Moore) fuses her troops into a cohesive force, executing dance interludes with muscular grace and grit. It would be wrong not to thank them for their service."
"One of the most engaging, genuine, provocative, and humbling pieces of theater I’ve seen in years... it shocks you instantly from complacency with the force of its power. It leaves you changed."
[Bullet Catchers] highlights women’s deep desire to serve, mirroring attitudes that have been encouraged in men since before our country’s founding. Given the current political climate, Bullet Catchers is a necessary performance.
“What they express is more than can be written down and must be seen to be appreciated.”
"...heartfelt, realistic nuances…Inventive staging by director Julia Sears"
