“The Goldie of Marie-Claire Giraud is a manual of caring and the gentlest essay in tough love one can hope for.“
Anthony Marinelli, Theaterscene.net
”The cast of these four works are enthusiastic, committed and strive to attain the brass ring... with Giraud and Welsh particular standouts in their respective roles. Patrons would do well to experience these rarely-produced works of an American playwright icon. The chance may never come again to witness such theatrical writing genius.”
Marilyn Lester, NitelifeExchange.com
“Ms. Giraud has beautiful moments when she embraces and comforts Bertha and moments of desperation when she is pressured by her pimp. Ms. Giraud’s is a nuanced and fully realized Goldie and a standout performance”
Maui Paul Janes-Brown, Curtain Call
