Recently closed Gracie Gardner's ATHENA at JACK, a NEW YORK TIMES Critic's Pick!

"Ms. Awe and Ms. Greer play their roles with humor, grit and team spirit — palpable even behind those mesh masks....Ms. Greer’s Athena is more worldly, but also much needier and more fragile. The twining of these characters and performances makes “Athena” hugely appealing and stealthily moving"

-Alexis Soloski, NEW YORK TIMES

"But the intense, quirky Athena complicates this combination with an underlying emotional opaqueness. Greer often gives her an impassive mask, making it unclear whether Athena can’t express her feelings and is hiding behind her sharp tongue, or if she is supremely manipulative. This ambiguity is one of the play’s finer touches."
