North Country Public Radio
"Miss Blume and Mr. Jacobs have found many parallels between 19th century Russia and 21st century Vermont and have also found lots of humor...Jacobs has staged the piece to take full advantage of the intimate playing space. We are caught up in the intensity of communication between the characters."

"We go to the theater, of course, not just for the mirroring ...but to gain new insights into the same old problems; to see ourselves from strange and revelatory angles. Perhaps the alchemy of 19th-century Russia and present-day Vermont ... will produce just that effect: leading us abroad in order to bring us home again."

Burlington Free Press
" A smart, funny, respectful treatment of Uncle Vanya...An impressive achievement."

Rutland Herald
" Vanya/Vermont, a take-off on Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, is a delightful piece of theater - witty, touching, fun and sad, in that order."

Chris Bojhalian, best-selling author of Midwives
"Poignant and smart and memorable and surprising and idiosyncratic and timely and thought-provoking
and laugh-out-loud funny."

Melissa Lourie, Co-Founder, Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival
"Kathryn Blume's adaptation succeeds on every level. Blume infuses the sad, often desperate struggles of her characters with wit and humor."
