No shortage of praise on social media for The Beauty Queen of Leenane

Critical Round-Up

CHICAGO READER RECOMMENDED AND "BEST BET!!" "The script is a wonderful balance of contrasts, and this cast knows how to interpret them, particularly Gray and Harris, who bring out McDonagh’s hardened themes, the most poignant of which is captivity." —Matt de la Peña, Chicago Reader

PERFORMINK CRITIC'S PICK!! "...the strength of performances in Bluebird Arts’ THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE makes for an engaging and humorous evening that should not be missed."  --Bec Willett, Performink.

RECOMMENDED!! "The believability of the relationships between the four character cast was incredibly compelling. Kate Harris navigates well the character of stubborn and needy matriarch Mag....Extremely emotive performances, particularly Gray’s portrayal of Maureen’s stifled frustrations of years being her mother’s caretaker....Truly, this performance will leave you stunned." --Mary, Crylen, Chicago Stage Standard

RECOMMENDED!! "The Bluebird Arts production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane will fulfill your Martin McDonagh needs." --Alexis Bugajski, Picture this Post
