Audience say: 

Once in a while I see a show worth posting about. Yesterday was that. I had the honor of seeing Chaplin at the Planet Connections Festival in New York City. The performance, writing, and direction were nothing short of Phenomenal. I can truly vision this show receiving strong press and potentially a drama desk award. Great job Lori Kee for outstanding Direction, Ivette Dumeng & Tatyana Kot for strong performances. Nylon Fusion Theater is theater you simply cannot miss - Albert Bramante

Astounding and brilliant aren't adjectives I use often or easily. Ivette Dumeng's performance in The Chaplin Plays, by Don Nigro, directed by Lori Kee at Planet Connections Theatre Festivity was all that. Word is that a future life is planned for this production. Watch for it. Don't miss it.  - Robin L. Rice

[Ivette Dumeng] Your performance in Don Nigro's tremendous study and celebration of the life of the actor was so brilliant and played on that tightrope with such agility balancing all those emotions. We all laughed and listened. Neither side of that stage could ask for more.- Mary Tierney
