Rapture, Blister, Burn

by Gina Gionfriddo

Goodman Theatre

Time Out Chicago, Kris Vire

"What Gina Gionfriddo's smart comedy, receiving an incisive Chicago premiere via the overdue Goodman directing debut of Kimberly Senior and a finely tuned cast, does is allow the trio to actually test the waters."

Chicago Theatre Review, Colin Douglas

"Highly respected local director Kimberly Senior makes her Goodman debut with this play. It’s a piece that not only challenges the talented young director but, as a mother and career woman herself, speaks to her in many ways. Ms. Senior has staged this play alternately with a comfortable style and brisk pacing, knowing precisely when to slow down the tempo in order to drive a point home."

The 4th Walsh, Katy Walsh

"Under the masterful direction of Kimberly Senior, the flipflopping attitudes make for hilarity and thoughtprovoking banter."

Chicagoland Theatre Reviews, Dan Zeff

"'Rapture, Blister, Burn' is blessed with a spoton cast, guided by Kimberly Senior's razor sharp directing."

Splash Magazine, Justin LeClaire

"Kimberly Senior (making her Goodman Theatre debut) brings this play to life with her excellent direction."
