"Rain had fans on the edge of their seats with tears in their eyes and constant questions just waiting to be answered. Through careful staging and creativity in design aspects in the play, fans were able to watch a jigsaw puzzle of emotions get pieced together into a masterful treat. People say when it rains it pours and I’m sure Theatre Wesleyan will have fans pouring into the auditorium to watch this complex yet exciting tale." -Shaydi Paramore with The Rambler

"Awesome production, one of the best I’ve seen locally on any stage, education, community, or professional. Devastatingly good." -Terri (comment on
