Star Tribune
"With powerful performances, Electra epitomizes what sets Ten Thousand Things apart"
Brigitte at Kings Crossing
"Thank you SO much TTT, for your stunning version of Electra! This was another perfect show...you took an old play and brought it back to life"
Inmate at Ramsey County Women's Workhouse
"Here and in treatment and stuff, you're not really suppose to talk about your anger and being betrayed. You're only suppose to talk about looking forward to good, the roses, but THIS is the real stuff we gotta work through."
Cherry and Spoon
"This tragedy was a joy to watch"
Attendee at Northland High School (Remer, MN)
"I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. I'm blown away!"
Helen at Indigenous Roots
"I loved everything about Electra at the Indigenous Roots Cultural Arts Center. I was transported from everyday life and deeply moved."
Talkin' Broadway
"Electra offers a work of theater that touches us by laying bare the world in which we live."
Attendee at Cornerston Advocacy
"This is it, this, what we see as the extreme in this story happens to women and people everyday. It's just behind closed doors. It can be triggering and hard for sure, but also really helpful for some of these women to see parts of their own story reflected. They feel a little less alone. I do."
Norma at Open Book
"Absolutely outstanding! Melding the tragic age-old story of Electra with the contemporary humor of the wise muses was most entertaining and appreciated"
