Star Tribune
"Under Marcela Lorca’s confident direction, Sor Juana shifts nimbly between drama and comedy, between English and Spanish, between reality and magic..."
Attendee at Valley Villa Assisted Living (Bigfork, MN)
"I can’t I believe I got to see this where I usually eat my turkey sandwiches!"
Mike at Open Book
"It was more than brilliant. By the time the play had ended I was doing everything in my power to hold back my tears; I was about to burst. My humble and eternal thanks."
Talkin' Broadway
"It is both beautiful and tragic, scripted with tenderness, fury and intelligence, and this production succeeds in every way possible."
Inmate at MN Correctional Facility - Togo
"I can honestly say this is my first time ever seeing a play, now I can say I saw a play."
Sieglinde at Open Book
"Sor Juana was a delight in every way. More than that, the play was yet another example of the purity and magnetism of theater, superb acting providing intended and unintended interaction with the audience that makes TTT Theater the best there is!"
Pioneer Press
"And it's a very strong production of a quite well-crafted play...has wonderful traditional music and a dancing grace as audiences are swept in and out of various times and spaces."
Attendee at Village Hall (Bigfork, MN)
"I feel like we all just had a big party together. Maybe that’s why I’m crying. Because it’s over."
Patricia at Open Book
"My friend and I agreed that it was one of the best plays we have seen at 10,000 Things AND that is saying a lot. We are true groupies"
City Pages
"...director Marcela Lorca has assembled a sterling ensemble...the actors’ shared energy shines."
Teenage attendee at Project Success
"It was like 3D. It was so real."
Judy at Open Book
"I saw my first TTT show about 10 years or so ago. Since then I've been a regular. I always know I'm going to see a great show and have never been disappointed, but this show topped even the best of previous shows."
Cherry and Spoon
"Sor Juana is a heroine for today…TTT's new Artistic Director Marcela Lorca once again takes the helm, leading this terrific seven-person cast through the shifting times and places of the story with ease."
Attendee at Lyric Center for the Arts
"We did not know what to expect tonight, and we didn’t expect anything like this. And it was awesome."
