“For sheer exuberant ribaldry, it would be hard to find something to top the Protean Theatre Company’s production of The London Cuckolds. Strikingly modern and
wildly funny, the cast of thirteen, under Owen Thompson’s direction, brings
enormous energy and infectious joy to this subversive tale.”
-The New York Times (D.J.R. Bruckner) – The London Cuckolds
“The Doctor in Spite of Himself has a wise friend in director-adapter Owen Thompson. This production is laugh-aloud funny and more. It’s a clever postmodern burlesque.If Moliere’s ghost is standing in the back of this
theatre, he’s probably applauding.”
-BackStage (Glenda Frank) - The Doctor in Spite of Himself
“Great serendipitous pleasure! Very, very funny! This is farce,
and Owen Thompson resourcefully stages it as such.”
-The New York Post (Clive Barnes) - The London Cuckolds
"A storm of a show, like none you've ever seen! This Tempest is a totally immersive
experience and a thrilling one at that! Director Owen Thompson has pulled
out all the stops in an effort to provide a memorable experience and he succeeds in spades! Action is everywhere and
one is filled with wonder from start to finish!"
-Queens Chronicle (Mark Lord) -The Tempest *
* Nominated for the New York Innovative Theatre Award for Outstanding Director and Outstanding Revival of a Play
"This show is farce in the extreme: humor tumbles like an avalanche and expert director Owen Thompson points the cast in the right direction to keep all the snowflakes falling!"
-WeAreGreenBay.com (Warren Gerds) -The Nerd

Highest recommendations!” “Riveting!”

"Lunt & Fontanne is a solid win! Director Owen Thompson leverages the natural chemistry of his actors, and the result of this creative collaboration is lovely to behold!"
-New York Theatre Guide (Mariana Howard) - Lunt & Fontanne
"When it is done properly, Charles Ludlam's takeoff on Victorian melodrama
is an absolute gas. Happily, the Seven Angels production offers deft
direction by Owen Thompson and top-drawer performances.
Bolstered by first class sets, sounds, lighting, and costumes,
this version (and I've seen a few) is about as good as it gets!"
-The Newtown Bee (Julie Stern) -The Mystery of Irma Vep
“For my taste, Owen Thompson has done more than expected. He’s taken a
summer stock standard of days gone by and made it fresh without
propping it up with cosmetics and nostalgia. Van Druten deserves
such care and clarity, and he magically receives it here.”
-The New Haven Advocate (Christopher Arnott) – Bell, Book, and Candle
“This colorful and splendid rendition will leave you laughing all night
long! A wonderful way to spend an evening.”
-The Theatre Mirror (Tony Annicone) – The Mikado *

-The New Haven Advocate (Christopher Arnott) - The Good Doctor
