Julius Caesar

"The amoebalike ensemble, which sometimes seems to swell to include the entire audience of 1,800 citizens, does unusually fine work: a crucial element in a play about the manipulation of crowds"

Luke Cage

 "When Billie’s sister steps up to help her, she’s shot, too. When Luke Cage allows melodrama to work into its favor, it is largely successful"

[Ep. "The Main Ingredient"]
