"The show is richly thought-out and incredibly complex, and following the threads is deeply enjoyable. Providence, RI is extremely smart, funny, sincere, and creepy, with something for everyone. … A beautiful production from a remarkably young company." -Theatre Is Easy (Best Bet)
There's this town. All these people live there. There are all these places they live in. And eat at. And avoid. And die in. It's the kind of town you hear about and think: "I should take a trip up there. For the fall colors." But you never do. Tonight is all about this town. And its people. And their places. There are giant squirrels in this town, and a set of quintuplets mysteriously separated at birth -- but we'll get to them later. Providence, RI explores how people build towns, how towns build memories, and how those memories build new people and towns altogether.
"Written with a high degree of polish."
"Fox and Henriques have a unique voice together. Their ability to incorporate humor and poetry kept the piece afloat. … There was immense trust and compatibility in the five piece ensemble."

"Artistically daring…Providence, RI harnesses its elusiveness and cacophony for surprisingly moving ends."
–New York Theatre Review
"The cast and crew bring together an almost extra-sensory tapestry. The cast clips through live set changes, overlapping narration and semi-linear scenes with expert precision, and the timing is spot on."
