 “Vashti” excerpts

“…beautiful, strong, women in a cluster, performing Ariel Grossman’s lovely, fluid choreography…With a continuous flow of energy they supported and reinforced the quest of Vashti as she unraveled and solved the questions posed for women then, and for women now.” -Broadway World BWW
