Swift and witty, it was like an on-point episode of "The Golden Girls" if they were the founding mothers and much younger, of course. "Martha Washington..." is't just a staged sitcom, though; it also opens the discussion of how women are treated by men and other women both in history and in our modern relationships.... full review

As expressed to me after the show, "History, Death, Feminism, and Funny, what more could you ask for?!?" I could not agree more. This tongue- and- cheek, historical satire, just feels good in today's political climate. Much of that comes from the wonderful writing & acting of Corinne Mestemacher, writer, producer, and Martha Jefferson of the piece. Megan Barker (Deb), Jaime Lucas (Sam Adams), and Laura Lee Walsh (Dolley), all deliver laugh out loud performances, and of course, I would be amiss if I did not mention the name sake of the performance Katie Stevens, Martha Washington, who had me believing, "maybe our first Fist Lady really did kill a guy...?"

An offbeat, absurdist, even sitcomesque take on a overlooked historical event. Through all the blood, people popping up in windows and one-liners, performances are what shine. The timing has been wrenched into all the right spots thanks to an experienced director. The dialogue needs a little punch-up, but there is no shortage of laughs in this show. The show is short, clever, snappy and doesn't let go until the bows. You'll have a good time and learn something in the process. Check it out!... full review

STEVE NEVIL certified reviewer · June 13, 2017
An inspired piece which turns history on its head. The multi-talented Matt Ritchey takes the directorial reigns on this wacked-out comedy which comes in at a tight 40 minutes. HIs actors are wonderful but the group of comediennes led by the dazzling actress-writer Corinne Mestemacher prove that historical girl power is not just the province of Hamilton's Schylur sisters!... full review
