Backstage_Mag_Logo
“Exquisitely acted, “Three Trees” puts forth beautiful ideas concerning the transformative power of creating and inspiring art, the notion of a portrait as the container of a human spirit, and the confounding intersection of the aesthetic and the mundane in the everyday experience of an artist. Intelligently directed by Ernest Abuba, the production is entrancing...!

New York Times logo
“a half-ancient, half-contemporary take on a classic Japanese myth...the time-hopping gives the production license to hop among genres and textures, from Ms. Ito’s striking classical dance, to martial art scenes” to “evocative” anime projections.
- Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times
