Raves rolling in for the HPT production of Tigers Be Still:

"Freaking outstanding . . . a kooky summer cocktail concocted almost purely for your comic pleasure [with] a splash of bitters."
- Spike Gillespie of Spike Speaks

"Surprisingly touching comedy . . . irreverently funny . . . [As Sherry,] Molly Karrasch's face reveals the character's constant fight to move forward, her expression alternating between joy over progress and anxiety over backsliding. But Sherry does gain ground, as do Jay Michael Fraley's hilariously chipper principal, Jon Cook's chronically snarky son, and Kelsey Kling's sleepy souse of a sis--all of whom also strive to aid in someone else's emotional rescue. . . . A winner."
- Austin Chronicle

"[Tigers Be Still] will have you falling out of those new comfy chairs at the Hyde Park Theater. It's that good. . . . Director Ken Webster delivers another masterpiece."
- Austin Live Theatre

The San Francisco Chronicle called Tigers Be Still "an uproar of laughs." The New York Times called Kim Rosenstock's off-Broadway hit "an endearing new play . . a heartfelt comedy" in which a big cat on the loose from a local zoo fits right in with the anxiety and depression of modern life.

The HPT production is directed by Ken Webster and stars Molly Karrasch, Jon Cook, Jay Fraley, and Kelsey Kling.
