Theater Review: IN RESPONSE: Year of the Women

Excerpt: "IN RESPONSE is a complex collage of voices yearning, and deserving, to be heard. The voices come to life through the sensitive direction of Towne Street Theatre co-founders Nancy Cheryll Davis and Nancy Renee, as well as a cast adept at playing multiple roles. Response to IN RESPONSE has been so strong that it will return in the spring. But don’t wait! Head up Highland to the Stella Adler Theatre."


"Such a beautiful, honest show with talented group of people!! Definitely will keep tracking them."

- Aaron Testa | Coordinator, Talent & Casting |
