Hear a Sample & What Folks are Saying……
“The voice talent, Miriam Hyman was really excellent. I could clearly tell the difference between characters, plus she enunciates beautifully.”
“In Queen Sugar ……[the novel] is a sensory experience, a tableau vivant that Baszile skillfully paints in a palette simultaneously subtle and bold. Queen Sugar is a bright and enticing reminder that, sometimes, you can go home.”

Here’s what reviewers had to say about this 2014 NYT Critics’ Pick:
“The enchantment begins immediately, with a storm-tossed shipwreck made of shouted voices, a haze of fog, and a speckled, celestial light cast by a giant metal orb, pocked with holes, its lit from within, swaying like the wild sea…..a beautiful production.” -The New York Times
“…….Miriam A. Hyman is a lovely Miranda,…..” – New Yorker
“Just might cure those theatergoers who have been deaf to this play’s poetry and charms….uniformly excellent acting, a visual aural feast.”- Curtain Up
