“Louise filled a character, that is too often relegated to being ‘comic relief,’ with a history and life that made the comedy sparkle.  I could always count on her to bring in well thought out, clear and unique approaches to the text.”
~Kat Vecchio, director

“Louise Flory is a consummate professional with undeniable talent and drive.  Her well-turned character work ‘Blue Surge’ added great dimension to the piece; I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again.”
~Greg Taubman, artistic director Extant Arts Company

“The cast does a good job in creating touching and precise characterizations, and yes, the play does fly in this production.  It will make you think, it will make you wonder, it will – hopefully –  make you ask yourself some hard questions and maybe even find some answers.”
~Saviana Stanescu,

“Louise Flory as Heather has more of a spark to [her] acting.”
~Bina Sharif, Arts International
