Kind Words

LOVE'S LABOR'S LOST by Shakespeare

"...adventurous staging, consistently fine acting. Galvin's troupe of actors has clearly captured her playful imagination as they bring wonderful physical comedy and timing to the piece. Then, there are the water balloons." TriCorner News

"In Kelly Galvin’s lively, amusingly anachronistic production, with a text stripped of some of its more flowery flights and trimmed to a swift 90 minutes, [the energetic troupe] scampers over the wooded hillside and among the spectators." Valley Advocate

"Directed for every comic possibility by Kelly Galvin, the young company takes immense pleasure out of teasing the audience, testing one another’s mettle, using slapstick techniques with ardor...When they don't make you laugh, they touch your heart." Berkshire EDGE

"A delightful farce...The characters remind us of what it is to have fun and folly in nature." Berkshire Fine Arts

"Director Kelly Galvin’s actors use the entire landscape of The Dell, rushing up and down hills, hiking through the forest, and creating merry mayhem wherever they go." Berkshire Onstage

 

THE LAST WIFE by Kate Hennig

"Under the skilled direction of Kelly Galvin the play ... gives us more than just the story; it brings us the people - quirks, attitudes, lusts, loves and hates - with the intensity of witnessing our neighbors through their windows that have been left open and their doors left ajar." Berkshire Bright Focus

"Kelly Galvin moves the people, the play, and the modernization with ease." Berkshire EDGE

"Rich in nuance and acted with an eye toward distinctive, individuated characters. Insightful and engaging." Albany Times Union

"Superb acting... a kind of intimate epic." "I have been a fan of Kelly Galvin ever since her wonderful performance as Madame de Tourvel in Dangerous Liaisons with Shakespeare and Company [...] Even more impressive now is her direction of Kate Hennig’s The Last Wife." The Berkshire Review

Best Director of a Play- Nomination, BroadwayWorld Regional Awards

"...simple yet sumptuous... Kelly Galvin and her all-female creative team deliver an intimacy to the play [...] that pulls us instantly into the story. The crisp and clean production design is simple yet also contains elegant and even somewhat magical touches." Talkin' Broadway Regional, Phoenix

 

MEMORIAL by Livian Yeh

"Current and relevant [...] fine directing by Kelly Galvin." Boston Small Press and Poetry Scene

"Clearly the work of two young talents with luminous futures." The Valley Advocate

"An absolute must see. The excellent cast is directed with a deft hand by Kelly Galvin." The White Rhino Report

"What makes Memorial such a treat is that it acknowledges cultural differences and finds a way to make something beautiful from putting them in conflict with each other." The New England Theater Geek

"Kudos to director Kelly Galvin and sound designer Oliver Seagle for the omnipresent stonecutter soundscape: The echo of marble yielding under the pressure of a chisel is expressly haunting and evocative of Lin’s struggle to see her vision manifested." Boston Arts Review

 

WAM, FRESH TAKES PLAYREADING SERIES

"Kelly Galvin has been fearless and perceptive in her choice of plays to explore in [WAM's] intimate reading series." Berkshire Onstage
