Press

With utter fearlessness, the cast of Bar Dykes engages the senses with near-perfect timing, emotion, and vulnerability... Brilliantly acted by Brooke M. Haney... the cast shines in a true ensemble performance - Advocate

The cast completely commits to the tone and cadence of the text, honoring the characters’ individual truths with sparkling emotional depth. ...It’s a joy I don’t want to ever end.

- Arts Forum, Jess Barbagallo on Bar Dykes.

Haney plays Dee Dee artfully as a high-strung, naive dreamer. - The Boston Globe
This play is an actor's dream, a director's challenge and an audience's delight. ...two actresses -- Susan Bigger (Alberta) and Brooke M. Haney (Dee Dee) are perfect. - The Edge Boston 

“Ms. Haney brings physical strength and emotional vulnerability to this challenging role.” - New York Theatre Review

“Kiss Me Or Cut Off My Head is a sensitive portrayal of the physical, emotional, and often economic trauma of sexual violence.” - New York Theatre Review
