IF YOU SPLIT A SECOND
"McGorty and Chavara morph in and out of characters within seconds. The orchestration is an ever-flowing story. In one of the final scenes, there is a poignant montage performed by McGorty and Chavara."
GENIUS BY KATE WALBERT
"In the best scene...the excellent Chavara's Charlotte is told by her guilty husband of how this has gone down, and she deals with the complexities of maybe being betrayed by the man she loves, or maybe just having to face some kind of personal truth. It's quite a riveting couple of minutes."
New City Stages
"Stephanie Chavara suggests Charlotte’s inner conflicts with a gesture, a look.""
"Chavara brings credible high intelligence – as well as self-doubt"
CHARLES IVES TAKE ME HOME, BY JESSICA DICKEY
Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
"features potent performances from Dave Belden as the father and, especially, Stephanie Chavara as the passionate athlete who wants nothing so much as to lose herself in a river of sweat and motion. Chavara has a tough assignment here — her kinetic character is at the right end of the dial for pretty much the entire duration of the show and Chavara throws herself into that life force but also lets you see the pain beneath. It's a tough task, well executed."
"played to perfection"
