Theatrical Musings

"Matherson and knows when to ratchet up suspense. In addition, he emphasizes tenderness, steaminess, vulnerability and unbridled, hard-core, almost primitive sexuality when the show calls for each of these." 

Florida Theatre On Stage

"Matherson along with assistant director Murphy Hayes and choreographer Kelly Johnson have infused a visceral physicality that delivers the sense of people consumed by – actually a prisoner of – lust when their actual obsession is for something that sex cannot slake."

"To bring this Off-Broadway sensation to South Florida, one would need superlative actors/singers, a spot-on choreographer and expert back-up band. Happily, hot new Measure for Measure theatre company has come through, once again, with all of the above and a hip, creative staging at Broward Center's Abdo New River Room."
