Five Stars
— Sacramento News and Review
I was also impressed by young director Lyndsay Burch, who brings savvy maturity to this tale about life’s ups and downs. This two-character play is one of the most interesting and absorbing productions at the B Street Theatre in recent years, and I really recommend it.
— Jeff Hudson, NPR
Director Lyndsay Burch has the action flow around the set, and even though the ideas feel repetitive at times, the momentum usually carries us through. Both intimate and epic, the play works as a creative time capsule of our age – with an old-fashioned love story at its post-modern heart.

Best Overall Production in 2016
— The Sacramento Bee
Lyndsay Burch has directed with a wonderfully gentle touch, and Samantha Reno and Steven Schmidt’s elegant set design feels like a sensual exploratorium not entirely of this world.

Four Stars

Hunt’s sensitive, charged performance shows us the change while Lyndsay Burch’s nuanced direction pushes past some late sluggishness in the script.

An outstanding work of Sacramento theatre in 2015.

The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence

Burch also deftly maneuvers on the “steampunk” to “cyberpunk” axis of the tale that George has imagined.
— Davis Enterprise
Watching this show’s three actors bounce between the centuries is fun, and young director Lyndsay Burch does a smart job keeping the audience onboard and the humor percolating.

Wrong For Each Other 

The young director Lyndsay Burch sets a smooth, easy tone and smartly lets her expert actors handle the heavy lifting.
— The Sacramento Bee
B Street actors Kurt Johnson and Melinda Parrett work up good chemistry, and young director Lyndsay Burch deserves a feather in her cap for creating a sense of direction and spontaneity in a story that’s rather lightweight and predictable.
— Capital Public Radio
In the hands of Parrett and Johnson, under the direction of Burch, the verbal sparring of the two characters is a delight to behold.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day the Musical

Director Lyndsay Burch deftly keeps the action rolling along, Armando Luis Rivera as Alexander leads the talented cast with his plucky charm, and set designer Samantha Reno wonderfully recreates all the indoor and outdoor aspects of Alexander’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

A Steady Rain 

Director Lyndsay Burch uses actor placement to impart certain sentiments on the small B3 stage. Putting Johnson under or near a hanging interrogation-room light makes him look dead-eyed - even as Denny recalls supposedly happy moments.
— The Sacramento Bee
Lyndsay Burch’s direction is swift and sure, and Ron Madonia’s punchy lighting design effectively illuminates playwright Keith Huff’s script...this is one tight production.
