CONSTANCE JAQUAY STRICKLAND uncertified reviewer June 16, 2019
As soon as you walk in you feel a contagious energy living in this theatre. One is immediately aware they are bearing witness to a special performance where actors and non-actors share the stage to honor the Promotoras who’ve fought for their community, the safety of their bodies, better work conditions and built a union connecting janitors across the state of California. This play is powerful. The play is full of urgency as it gives insight into the battles and wins endured by immigrant janitors who fought to protect women while working late night janitorial shifts. This fight for women led by women redefined how immigrant women were seen in the workplace. It is a testament to the power of coming together and sacrificing by any means necess... full review

ALEJANDRA VALLES uncertified reviewer June 16, 2019
This obra is truly a work of art. No paid or professional actors no dramatization to fit the screen. These are real life janitors based on real stories or sexual violence, rape, assault and harrasment they have experienced on the night shift. Jeannette Godoy brings to stage healing through the work of theatre and cultura. This is theatre at its finest. Working with low wage immigrant workers to capture their experiences in their own words, actions and expression. One of a kind, a lessson to all of us that we can learn so much from women society deems invisible and whose voices have been marginalized even more within the me too dialogue. Times not up. It’s been up. ... full review

MIGUEL CALDERON certified reviewer June 17, 2019
It was powerful to see so many Janitors men and women unapologetically saying Ya Basta! to sexual assault and violence in the workplace, open my eyes in to many angles to realize how we abuse to each other in different ways just because is funny, because somebody is different, because somebody looks attractive, thank you to all this brave actors to help me open my eyes with this powerful play. Ya Basta!!!... full review
