“(Dr Ruth) arms Mr. St. Germain, and Anne O’Sullivan, the actress who plays her in Stephen Nachamie’s well-directed production, with a surprising, eventful biography, a distinctive sound, a penchant for humor and an animated personality... In the end, the play morphs into a moving meditation on the meaning of home, not sex.”

-The New York Times

(Becoming Dr. Ruth, Penguin Rep)

Stephen Nachamie, the director, also understands that heritage; the world of the Hasid in Brooklyn is so comfortably expressed, so specifically nestled into his efficient and organic staging…Potok’s story engages the mind and heart, and Penguin Rep Theater, relying on strong direction and three fine actors, has served it terrifically in a rich, moving and surprisingly powerful production. This is good theater, folks… “My Name Is Asher Lev” has remarkable achievements, and this exquisite Penguin Rep production enhances them all. A willing audience can expect to observe carefully, think deeply and feel in their soul. Lucky audience.”

The New York Times

(My Name Is Asher Lev, Penguin Rep)

“To portray Billie Holiday is a tall order, but Tracey Conyer Lee is able to infuse her performance with the history behind that incredible, unique voice, under the able direction of Stephen Nachamie...The play ends with one of the most powerful finales I’ve ever seen on the stage, sending chills up your spine as you start to grapple with the magnitude of the story you’ve just witnessed.”- Provincetown Magazine

(LADY DAY.. at Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre)

“I sort of thought I was over A CHORUS LINE. Stupid of me! Stephen Nachamie's production reminded me why you should never get over it.”

Peter Marks  – The Washington Post (via Twitter)

“Under the direction of Stephen Nachamie, the actors give meticulously shaded performances.”
