"Audiences that missed the earlier production (of Gruesome Playground Injuries), or those looking for an encore, should begin queuing up now, as the newly formed Loudmouth Collective has reunited the principal cast and crew (including leads Leigha Horton and Adam Whisner under the direction of Natalie Novacek) for a remount. Launching in such an attention-grabbing fashion underscores Loudmouth Collective's mission to develop a vibrant theater-going community with creatively daring works staged by some of the finest talents on the Twin Cities theater scene."

"Adam Whisner and Leigha Horton play out the angst and giddiness of a relationship that spans years of mishaps, estrangement, and periods of cathartic reconnection. Anyone who has experienced that particular brand of romantic intensity specific to hormonally crazed and emotionally tortured adolescents will recognize themselves in some of these scenes. The actors do great, visceral work, and create moments of aching, tremulous beauty and connection."

"Any comedy that starts with what just feels like the end of the world (a drunken morning after the party rude awakening) and ends up being about the actual end of the world, yet still leaves room for hope and survival without feeling contrived or overly sentimental, that's a mighty agile comedy. And they got some mighty agile comic performers to bring it to life."

"...the DVD should not be missed because it is edifying and charming. In it, local actress Leigha Horton interviews Micka and her friends - canning experts, such as MN State Fair award-winning canners Paula Pentel and Callie Wilson make an appearance - as they shop for food and equipment and demonstrate, step-by-step, how to how to use them, cooking various recipes from the book in the Wedge's demo kitchen."

"The script by Steve Moulds wastes no time in establishing a balance between quirky one-liners and heartfelt sentiment while the gifted young cast of Sid Solomon, Christine Weber, Shad Cooper, and Leigha Horton each realize the full potential of their roles."

"See You Next Tuesday is still an easily recommendable show...even better, they get to hang out with Shad Cooper and Leigha Horton as Solomon's brother and sister-in-law. The perfectly-cast quartet have crackerjack comic timing, and they romp through the play's lighter scenes like bears jumping in puddles of honey."

"The supporting cast is first rate, lead by Leigha Horton as Feste the fool, a wandering court jester....Horton is an agile and able guide through these thickets of comical words, managing to be both funny and wise in the process. Her voice and attitude lend great feeling and weight to Shakespeare's songs."
