"Probably my favorite was ‘Crush’, an excellent satire ... it presented terrifyingly fragile people dealing moment-to-moment with threats of expectation and self-disappointment. Shows like ‘Spring-Fling’ are rare. Indomitably weird ... it massages a part of the brain that is difficult to reach. The writing is unique, the direction excellent, and the cast on-point. This was a venue for honest theatrical experimentation, performed by people who unquestionably knew what they were doing." - Thomas Burns Scully
