REVIEW from TheaterJones.com: "Broke-ology doesn't need fireworks to hit home"
2012-06-01

"If you savor the power of words without all of the noise added in, something like Nathan Louis Jackson's Broke-ology might sit [long] in the memory."

"Garrett's production keeps the story moving, both in terms of pace and emotion. But it never bogs down with the maudlin. If there's not much outward emotional fireworks, that's a tribute to Garrett's direction and his excellent actors. Performed with low-key intensity on Michael Pettigrew's realistic set, the family drama is powerfully real."

- Mark Lowry, Theater Jones

The Column's Charlie Bowles Reviews 'Pretty Fire'
2012-02-21

   "It's fun to be part of this audience. Its part old-time religion, part comedy club, part grandma's house and part Broadway show."

Theatre Jones' Kris Noteboom Sees the Light and Spreads the Word about 'Pretty Fire'
2012-02-08

Excerpt:

"Pretty Fire is uncomplicated, yet dynamic. Marshall-Oliver nails a virtuoso performance. Despite the negative connotation from which the title is derived in the story, Woodard, Garrett, Marshall-Oliver and everyone at Jubilee rise like a phoenix from the ashes of that fire, and use that fuel to burn brighter than ever."
