reviews

"Weems sticks to Shakespeare's vision of the farce for the initial acts but brings out the wackiness we were waiting for as the final act morphs into a Bananarama video before the cast starts with the dance party that Boiling Point Players always end with.  If you're just getting into Shakespeare it's light fare and appropriate for children if you translate some of the saucier meaning down to more appropriate terms. If you're a purist, the play has some deviation, invoking the rule of funny where necessary." - Glen Welch (Red Publication) for The Merry Wives of Windsor

"All parts of the play hit, there is no lag while the story develops... Christine Weems has the play push forward, moving it from one scene to another giving it a true feel of a whirlwind romance." - Glen Welch (Red Publication) for The Right Kind of People

 

"Under director Christine Weems, Beane's oily tale sails smooth and true. The bare bones set, designed by John Stevens and Weems, consists of three playing areas, which double or triple as bedroom, photographer's studio, restaurant, bar, limousine backseat, airport lounge, hotel lobby, painter's studio. There's no fat; it moves fast, like Alexa." - D.L. Groover (Houston Press) for As Bees in Honey Drown

 

"Christine Weems directs the play with a keen eye on pacing and energy. All of the actors attack the material with such zeal, keeping the energy ramped up so that the campiness never drags. The pacing is well timed and the cues are dead on, keeping the audience responsive. Combined with great acting and superb vocals, it's a solid production." - Nyderah Willams (Houston Broadway World) for Ruthless! the Musical

 

"Direction by Christine Weems proudly embraces and delivers the cartoony energy of classic American sitcoms. Her cast frenetically moves about the stage, jumping and leaping to show surprise and other emotions. They deliver classically over-acted facial expressions, causing us to flashback to the glory days of Lucille Ball. With the revised script and Christine Weems' charismatic direction, this production of BOEING BOEING is a buoyant and sidesplitting comedy that vastly appeals to everything Americans stereotypically want from sex-fueled comedy." - David Clark (Houston Broadway World) for Boeing Boeing

 

"Direction by Christine Weems guarantees that the audience experiences Dalton Trumbo as a real human. She does not romanticize the man in any way, having her cast handle the words compiled by Christopher Trumbo in a way that feels wholly realistic and believable. Nothing in the portrait seems over the top and is grounded in Dalton and Christopher Trumbo's own logical view of the world." - David Clarke (Houston Broadway World) for Trumbo: Red White and Blacklisted

 

"Director Christine Weems moves the pseudo-history play along with bracing clip, keeping the flow seamless and unstoppable." - D.L. Groover (Houston Press) for Murdering Marlowe

 

“Deft direction by Christine Weems keeps the pace going and the humor flowing.  The entire package verges on brilliance…” – Jim J. Tommaney (Houston Press) for The Coitus Plays: Pre

 

"Christine Vinh Weems's direction was crisp and clear, and the pace was kept at a high, perfect tempo." - Ashley Griffin (theateronline.com) for Art

 

"Presenting this is no small feat, and director Christine Vinh Weems has accepted the challenge and done an admirable job. It would have been quite easy for this to have been just a muddled mess in the wrong hands, but she has, with wise staging and tones, made sure that each actor is an autonomous and clear entity." - Robert Barry Francos (Ffanzeen) for The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women

 

“The highlights of the evening for this humble theatergoer were the crisp and humorous performances by most of the cast, wonderfully orchestrated by director Christine Vinh." - Antonio Minino (The Fab Marquee) for Office Hours

 

“Excellent direction by Christine Vinh Weems makes this an excellent closing of Act I of The Great Storm.” – Buzz Belmont (www.chron.com) for Into the Storm

 

“Christine Vinh Weems kept the pace of this production brisk and lively.” – Howard L Wieder for the Queens Bar Bulletin for No Sex Please, We're British
