"Kenneth Lee is polished as Lin Bo, whether waxing philosophical about the contemporary art scene, or being grilled about the details in his memoir... Along with Lee, (the cast is) agile in their ability to switch gears from scene to scene... a bit of a mindfuck..."

"Lin Bo, a personable Kenneth Lee (leads) a stellar cast... into an "Alice in Wonderland" for the modern age."

"As for the performance, it is stellar...Kenneth Lee as Cliff ... (and) the entire cast is well suited and work well together under the superb direction of Austin Pendleton.
- AXS.com , "Luna Gale"

- Arkansas Times, "Hamlet"
"Kenneth Lee ...brought Horatio to life...(he) manages to bring out the poet in Horatio...His strength as an actor makes it OK to take a backseat to Hamlet’s ramblings, and his feeling certainly comes out as the play nears its completion ... In short, I love Horatio - or Lee playing Horatio - in the Rep’s Hamlet."
- Tiny Acorns, "Hamlet"
"...the 10-person cast delivers dedicated performances"
- NY Theatre Now, "Ethel Sings"
