"In particular, Firstenberg’s Connie... is a revelation. In a complex blend of traits rarely seen in female characters on our stages, she combines sass, smarts and playfulness, mixing game-for-anything assurance with the kind of perspective and humility that makes it sound as if the subtext to all her lines is “... but it’s not a big deal.” Firstenberg plays her with such understatement, so scoured of any showiness, that you lean in to the show with greater tenderness toward it." - Lily Janiak, SF Gate
"As Moses' birth mother, Yocheved, Ayelet Firstenberg trills among semitones with a force that could bore back millennia." - Lily Janiak, SF Gate
