“As an actor who has been directed by Abby Lee, I am very impressed with her work.  Possessing a crystal-clear understanding of the playwright's vision, she carefully leads her actors to the full expresion of that vision--being, as she is, a subtly skillful catalyst of the actors' creative process.”

Reviews for Balls. . . The Musical? (Off-B'way at The Lion Theatre)

"the true star of the show is the choreography and the re-imagined musical numbers. The choreography is perfectly styled; it hits all of the notes of typical Broadway dance-call style choreography, while never being too graceful. It always looks like 5 “dudes” dancing well, which amps up the humor of the sequences." - Michael Mraz, NYTHEATRE.COM


Reviews for Play By Play - Crossroads

“With typically smart direction from Stageworks founding artistic director Laura Margolis and newcomer Abby Lee, ‘Play by Play: Crossroads’ moves swiftly through its seven scenes of characters on the cusp of life-altering climaxes.” — James Yeara, Online Metroland

“In ‘Gunning for Life,’ a long married couple, very close to the end of it all, are delightfully convincing in their back and forth, querulous exchanges regarding how it’s all going to end. It’s a joyous macabre piece of writing expertly handled by actors and director (Lee).” — Charles Kondek, Register-Star

The cast included Richard Witkowski, Angela Rauscher, Linda Roper, Ryan R. Katzer
