Simon Stephen’s BIRDLAND is playing at The Sumner Theatre until July 4.

Here are what the reviews are saying about Leticia’s direction:

“Leticia Cáceres’s direction is stunning. She navigates the shifting tonal and emotional register with complete confidence, and she reins in excess just enough to make it feel nuanced and multi-faceted…
The MTC hasn’t given us a production this vital and crackling in a long time, and audiences could wait years to see a performance this mammoth…
This is a play with more than atmosphere; it’s got guts, and compassion and cauterizing honesty. It’s unmissable.” Tim Byrne, Time Out

 
Birdland is captivating, insightful and darkly humorous… Birdland sticks with you..” Raphael Solarsh, Arts Hub

 
“Director Leticia Cáceres creates a tornado-like force onstage as the characters whirl and wreak destruction.” Rebecca Harkins-Cross, Sydney Morning Herald
