NEW YORK COOL

"Angry Young Women is a fearless look at modern womanhood told through a series of comedic vignettes that left the audience both laughing and appalled. Watching this play would be a great outlet for angry young women every where; it embraces all that is crazy, neurotic, hypocritical and vulnerable in our lives. The lovely actresses unleash intense emotional whirlwinds throughout the entire eighty-five minute performance, somehow managing to continually keep the drama humorous….Matt Morillo has written and directed a show that entertains men and women alike. Somehow he has managed to capture private female thoughts and intimate moments with such accuracy that you have to wonder if he had a personal peephole into the ladies room at his local bar. The audience of both men and women laughed with the seven young brazen actors for the majority of the show. The pace, momentum and vigor were unfailing and it was a sexy and shocking night at the theatre - something we could all probably use." -Shareshten Senior


AUSTRALIAN STAGE ONLINE

"From the opening moments it feels like the Cosmo sealed section grew a mouth and limbs and trotted out onto the stage… takes a no-holds-barred approach to pretty much everything when it comes to talking about sex.

THE NEW YORKER:


"Matt Morillo, a comedy writer from Long Island, directs his own series of sketches about the conundrums facing contemporary urban hotties – namely, thong underwear, bikini waxes, bad boyfriends, and late feminism….Ironically, the best thing is the pitch-perfect dialogue that Morillo writes for the men in the ladies' lives: mystified young guys in generic jeans who prefer not to think about their issues."

- Joy Goodwin
