"Director Liz Maxwell and Producer Lisa Fernandez (who portrayed Lisa) did a fabulous job in bringing out the intimacy and richness of Collected Stories...Based on the work executed in Collected Stories, we’re sure these two have wonderful surprises up their sleeve." -MacDuff NYC

"Elizabeth Maxwell shows herself to be a smart, emotionally astute director. "gravesongs." is the rare case where it all comes together." -Cincinnati Enquirer

"gravesongs...is one of the most polished and accomplished shows of the [Cincinnati Fringe] Festival." -The Conveyor, Cincinnati Cultural Blog

"Director Elizabeth Maxwell provides a thoughtful note in the program, saying that the show does not offer answers but suggestions...It’s a thought borne out beautifully through Underwood’s well-written script and the finely nuanced performances Maxwell has drawn from her intern colleagues. It’s one of the most sincere and engaging theatrical performances of the 2009 Fringe." - City Beat Magazine
