Still, the overall cohesiveness and collected wisdom imparted from the production is a far greater reward and a testament to these female playwrights who reveal their individual voices while blending their work into a satisfying whole.

Six smart, sassy playlets under the collective title Black Women: State of the Union — Taking Flight accomplish more or less what the front line of theater is supposed to accomplish: spin our heads and our hearts in directions not widely imagined — at least not widely imagined by white guys like me.
Steven Leigh Morris – LA Weekly
While this passion doesn’t always ensure successful theatrical delivery of the plays, which are an uneven mix, the high points of the evening soar and make us glad that these artists are reaching out and being heard.
