” . . . an invigorating and highly inventive piece of mind-stretching theatre that demonstrates why the reputation of this new company grows stronger with each production.” – Frontiers (11/13/98)

“Clever writing and first-rate acting enable ‘Texarkana Waltz’ to spoof cowboys and trigger our emotions at the same time.” -LA Times

“More than any other troupe on the L.A. theatre scene, Circle X – a group of savvy, embarrassingly talented artists, most with heavy regional credits and theatre degrees – raises the bar for local stage productions to a level of both sturdy professionalism and imaginative stagecraft that seems almost dangerously headily high.” – Backstage West Dramalogue.
