“Dance Nation was on par with the best small theater you’d see in New York or Chicago. With a minimalist set and props, the company put on a play that literally had audience members jumping out of their seats to cheer in the middle of the production — especially thanks to actress Alicia Haymer, whose monologue elicited peals of laughter and shrieks of solidarity.” - Nashville Scene
What people said about the production:
-- "When people ask me the title of my favorite play, I will now say it's Dance Nation by Clare Barron. I could write a book about everything I loved about this play, but I'll try to leave it at this: I have never had my teen experience reflected in art in this way."
-- "I really, really loved Dance Nation. I felt like all the characters at some point during the play...Please, please go see it. You will thank me and then thank Nashville Story Garden..."
-- "If you don’t see Dance Nation, I swear to you, you will regret it. Deeply. Forever."
