Teatro Dramma’s productions have been reviewed as hauntingly visual productions and visual metaphores with strong imaginery and a dreamlike fresco of movement and design. “Transcends language barriers” (1982 -Gussow – New York Times).

In Elia K. Schneider’s, “Judgment on the Gray Beach” presented in New York’s La MaMa E.T.C. on 2015, Larry Lyt – New York Theater Wire – praised her work as one of the most striking plays he had seen in a long time.

In 2000, “Rooms” received accolades by D.J. R Bruckner of the New York Times who stated, “unspeakable sorrow of hopelessness spreads through the theater like the shadow of death’s wings. Yet, it is such a triumphant moment of theater that it brings cries of admiration and a thunder of hands from the audience….To feel such exhilaration and despair at once is a rare epiphany.”
