"This summer it's RVP's turn to shine. Private Fears in Public Places is a brilliant production of a brilliant script. On opening night, it was joyfully obvious that even the performers were amazed by what they'd done. Don't miss it. RVP's West Coast premiere is so strong and so well balanced as to have no perceptible weaknesses."
–Barry Willis, Marin Independent Journal
"This staging has impeccable timing. The ensemble plays with no concern for star quality, and brilliance in both the writing and design all contribute to an enveloping pleasure that sparkles and satisfies even as it sometimes saddens the heart. Jessica Holt directs with both authority and effectiveness to achieve sharp characterizations and brisk pacing. All six performers are wonderful in finding dimension and credibility in their characterizations."
