Wonderful reviews for Chang(e)!

"Chang(e) alternates between reality and illusion, and its visual and aural environment is so alluring you want to bathe in it..." - Laura Collins-Hughes, The New York Times

"Soomi Kim is fearless as Change, simultaneously attracting and repelling the audience with her convictions, while showing a startling vulnerability..." (★★★★) - Diep Tran, Time Out New York

" At the center of it all is an awe-inspiring performance by Soomi Kim, who is on stage the entire ninety minutes... Kim captures all that was so mythic about the troubled activist."- Arpita Kukherjee, Stagebuddy.com
