“Fortunately, Here is superbly acted by a fine young cast led by the impeccable Jacqueline Byers who finds every nuance, every shade of meaning in Emily, a dancer sidetracked from her great love. Byers has a natural quality so that even when the lines she speaks seem trivial and piffling she makes them work. Gregory Solomon as a would-be filmmaker is excellent. Jessie Cox as selfish but likable Heather is believable, and Erica Charles and Farhang Ghajar give excellent support.” — Gary Smith, Hamilton Spectator. Read more HERE!

“…[Director Aaron Jan] is a deep mine of creative writing talent and has a healthy command of theatre and its skills. He is similarly able to attract some of the best acting, choreographic, and technical talent in the area.” – Tom Mackan, read more here.
“It’s a play that falls squarely into the ‘living and dying for your art’ tradition of dance stories, though it’s more The Red Shoes than Black Swan in that regard- it succeeds in being both creative and staying grounded.” – Steven Spriensma, read more here
“…a really tight execution of a strong but simple script. They weave a few stories together in front of you, and their intersections are powerful, sometimes unexpected, but always executed seamlessly.” – Gord Simmons, read more here
We’ve got our first review! Check out Ashima Suri’s review on Mooney on Theatre:
“Here has all the ingredients of a great play. It has the drama, the dance, the romance, the betrayal, the flashbacks and so much more … if you are looking to watch a feel good play that will take you back you in time and have you reflecting on your past (in a good way), then add Here to your must see 2013 Toronto Fringe Festival list!”
