"...the show was incredibly meaningful and impressively fluid from the moment that the audience stumbled into the theater.  Immediately the performers were invested in their parts, and each wrote a certain section of the lyrics repeatedly throughout the space, only to erase, revise, and rewrite the lyrics at different points throughout the show.... The message was clear; relationships are all-consuming, emotional, and there’s no way to avoid the glaring reality of love."       --- The Crimson , "'At Last' Leaves Memorable Missive"

"Although the Emcee (Alexander M. Willis ’14) and the back-up dancers are only meant to guide the story along, they end up stealing the show with witty line delivery and well-choreographed routines.... the real vivacity in the play is provided by a cast of erotic dancers in lingerie—or, for the men, pants, suspenders, and a healthy dose of lipstick—all expertly choreographed by Hazel A. Lever ’13."      --- The Crimson , "Incredible Dancing Elevates 'Cabaret'"


"In 'Exit Tension,' Sosa set an all-female ensemble to the music of Iron and Wine, a soundtrack perhaps not typically destined for contemporary choreography, but which ended up working beautifully with her dynamic formations, transitions, and partner work while giving the dancers´ exuberance, such as that of stand-out Hazel Lever ‘13, a chance to shine."         --- Harvard Art Review,  "Barre None: A Harvard Ballet Company Performance"
