“There’s a lot of humor in Lynn Nottage’s Sweat, but it packs a truly devastating wallop, and Center Repertory Company’s production at Walnut Creek’s Lesher Center for the Arts doesn’t pull any punches.  […] Director Elizabeth Carter’s crisp and nuanced production is marvelously powerful, with a terrific cast. […] Lisa Anne Porter is electric with energy as Cynthia’s best friend and coworker Tracey, which is a lot of fun when they’re carousing but downright dangerous when cooler heads are needed.”

Sam Hurwitt, San Jose Mercury, April 2023

“Porter and Riddley give standout performances in very tough roles that ride a rollercoaster of raw emotions.”

Steve Murray, Broadway World, April 2023
