Times Square Chronicles says:

"EXPLOSIVE. CRISP. FAST PACED. FABULOUSLY SMART. WONDERFULLY SCORED. THIS PRODUCTION WORKS!
The King's Whore is as if MTV rewrote the Anne Boleyn story and based it on Alice In Wonderland. This production works! Anne, played by the wonderful KATE O’PHALEN, in this version, is a moody teenager who grows into a woman only to be beheaded.”

eljnyc.com says:

"DARING. DELICIOUS. INNOVATIVE. OUTRAGEOUS. BE PREPARED TO LAUGH. THIS IS ENTERTAINMENT.
This daring, fun production takes the bare facts of Henry VIII’s first two marriages and drapes them with hip-hop, rap, and attitude, while keeping it on-point. Strewn with surprises, like jewels hidden here and there, The King's Whore revs up history with 21st century behavior and emotion. Anne Boleyn goes from Barbie Girl to screeching harridan. KATE O’PHALEN is childish, then scheming, then annoying, then tragic, as Anne’s life morphs from charmed to doomed. Be prepared to laugh.  This isn’t history. It’s entertainment! Henry to the VIII, yo.”

  

4,000 MILES Reviews

 The Miami Herald says:

"As the two younger women in Leo's world, O'Phalen and Lin create vastly different characters. O'Phalen's Bec is angry, sour, finished with Leo if not quite over him.

Herzog's 4,000 Miles is full of funny exchanges and painful ones, awkward moments, exasperation, and sweetness. Like life itself, it's a journey of highs and lows, but at Gablestage, it's a ride worth taking."

 Examiner.com says:

"The brilliant cast includes Michael Focas, Wei-Yi Lin, Kate O'Phalen, and Harriet Oser. Every cast member hits their mark, with realistic, unique characters that come to life like a pop-up book. Each one so different, yet their relationships build the story of 4,000 Miles."

WIOD 100.3 FM says:

"The cast...gets it right...as his soon-to-be long gone girlfriend, BEC (Kate O'Phalen), handled her role with a mix of anger, sensitivity, and hurt."

ENV Magazine says:

"A brilliantly acted Gablestage production.

Leo's girlfriend who is about to break up with him (an excellent Kate O'Phalen)...adds to the grandson-grandma character study.

4,000 Miles is a small story, brilliantly acted - one which will allow us to be intimate with the characters - and stirring us into compassionate reflection - forgetting this is only a play, not real people."

 

THE CRUCIBLE Reviews

 The East Hampton Star says:

"The cast is exemplary...Kate O'Phalen as Mary Warren turns in a wonderful performance as Abigail's cohort. Ms. O'Phalen in particular gives a moving turn as a young girl torn between going with the crowd and doing the right thing."

Newsday says:

"Murphy Davis' crackling cast delivers a knockout distillation of this masterpiece."

The Sag Harbor Express says:

"This powerful production...features a top-notch cast who really bring the material to life. The cast is so passionate that the audience can't help but feel the oppression that must have been 17th century Puritan society."

"The evening is an unpredictable loony ride of non-stop laughter performed by a top-notch cast..."

The Sag Harbor Express says:

"Acted by a stellar cast...

Cullman's cast is finely-tuned and the non-stop pace feeds the energy, building to a crescendo where even the most offended audience member will be looking for more."
