Star Tribune: Top Theater of 2015

9. “Pussy Valley” (Mixed Blood Theatre): Playwright Katori Hall’s new drama, about the lives of strippers, was notable not only for its taboo subject matter and the playwright’s blunt approach, but also for the virtuosity and courage of its performers. Directed by Nataki Garrett, Jasmine Hughes, Joetta Wright and Megan Rippey went there and never flagged.
