Glowing praise for Body Awareness

Critics and audience members agree:
Body Awareness is a must-see!

“This is one of those lovely ensemble productions where everything meshes… gets the music of the dramedy exactly right.” – Bob Hicks, Oregon Arts Watch

 – a Willamette Week Pick! and selected as part of this week’s top 12Deftly juggling emotion and reason, it slyly tugs at the heartstrings but is too smart to pander to sappy sentiment.
– Rebecca Jacobson, Willamette Week

“…it’s a focused, smart little show, full of thoughtful performances from actors who clearly understand their characters.” – Alison Hallett, Portland Mercury

“… a thrilling production… Over the years, CoHo has honed an uncanny ability to suddenly pull a first rate rabbit out of the hat when you least expect it. This is that show, and you don’t want to miss it.” –

“While I’m pushing arts events: Body Awareness at CoHo is both smart AND funny AND well-acted.” – Barry Johnson

Body Awareness is simply one of the best pieces of theater I’ve seen in Portlandtruly and deeply moving, honestly funny and just plain amazing.”
– Christa Wessel, All-Classical Host (via Facebook)

“Director Gretchen Corbett stages Body Awareness as a tightly controlled, deliberately uncomfortable production.” – Carol Wells, The Oregonian

“What a wonderful time at the theatre we’re having in Portland! Are we lucky or what? Last night was the opening of Body Awareness to begin CoHo’s season and there was a treat in store for us there….the cast of four is so strong and the story is a spellbinder.  Go check this one out for yourselves; sometimes I feel that CoHo flies a bit under the radar for a lot of folks and I would encourage all of you to give this one a look.  I can’t wait to see the rest of their offerings this year.” – Kay Olsen, pdxbackstage

“We loved it. Well cast, amazingly natural acting, and great direction. Funny and poignant at the same time. Thanks, Gretchen and everybody else too. It was a wonderful afternoon.” – goldstar member
