"EDITOR’S PICK…a very impressive piece of work from a young director… As Bruce clearly understands, much can be accomplished with “The Little Foxes” in a tiny theater…It’s very sophisticated work.” - Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune FULL REVIEW

"Directed with uncommon finesse by Brandon Bruce…I always knew that ‘The Little Foxes’ worked, but I had no idea that it could work this well.” - Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal FULL REVIEW

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The revival of this 1939 Hellman classic…is rip-roaringly good, with director Brandon Bruce doing a splendid job of orchestrating one of those matchless Chicago casts in a tour de force of ensemble playing.” - Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times FULL REVIEW

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Director Brandon Bruce has made fine use of Shattered Globe’s two longtime leading ladies, Linda Reiter and Eileen Niccolai.” - Albert Williams, Chicago Reader FULL REVIEW

"RECOMMENDED. Brandon Bruce’s direction effectively spotlights the perilous chess game of Hubbard family life.” - Lisa Buscani, NewCity Chicago FULL REVIEW

"Director Brandon Bruce’s production is solid if not towering, bolstered by an almost impeccable cast…It’s deliciously wicked fun.” - Catey Sullivan, Chicago Examiner FULL REVIEW

"The Shattered Globe ensemble crackles in this intimate space…[a] powerful symphony of deceit and revenge, which sounds all the more potent in this time of deepening recession.” - Web Behrens, Chicago Free Press FULL REVIEW

"In Brandon Bruce's brilliant adaptation of Lillian Hellman's most famous play, he nails the explosive intersections of family, betrayal and money… Few things are more richly satisfying.” - Zev Valancy, Centerstage FULL REVIEW

"FOUR STARS. Thanks to Brandon Bruce’s insightful directing, the scenes flow with absorbing and occasionally chilling inevitability...pure theatrical gold.” - Dan Zeff, Chicagolandtheaterreviews.com FULL REVIEW

"...excellent production of the satirical allegory… Brandon Bruce gives his cast plenty of room to let the foxes run wild.” - Jeff Haverkamp, Edge Chicago FULL REVIEW

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED…a superb production, under the smart direction of Brandon Bruce…a triumph of ensemble acting.” - Tom Williams, Chicagocritic.com FULL REVIEW
