"Glengarry Glen Ross counts as another feather in this young company's cap; and you've only got this weekend to catch it, if you want to be able to say you knew them before they hit it big."
    -Tom Garvey, Hub Reviewon GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

"Keep your eye on IDS. They are indeed an up and coming local theater company. The company’s continued selection of worthwhile works demonstrates their taste, and their production value rivals companies who have been around a lot longer. I expect IDS to continue growing and making themselves a staple in the Boston theater scene.
    -Christopher M. Smith, Boston Theatre Reviewon GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

"The Independent Drama Society will certainly become an artistic force in the theatre community... A must-see for any small theatre enthusiast."
    -Kaitlyn MacPherson, Boston Theatre Review, on ROMEO AND JULIET

"Plenty of small-time companies attempt meaty work like this, but few achieve the degree of professionalism that IDS has with Proof. This is as good a take on staple American drama as you’ll see on much bigger stages around town, and on much bigger budgets. Score one for the little guy." 
    -Jenna Scherer, The Boston Herald, on PROOF

"Boston's burgeoning fringe scene should take note. IDS has mounted their version of Proof with care and intelligence, and found a non-Equity cast that could hold its own with many professional ones in town. The Independent Drama Society is a company to watch, and this production is proof."
    -Tom Garvey, Hub Reviewon PROOF

"The Independent Drama Society proves itself to be a prime company to watch."
    -Beverly Creasey, Boston Arts Reviewon PROOF

"The Independent Drama Society’s production is proof that small theater companies provide good theater at shoestring prices, even during these tough times."
    -Sheila Barth, Independent Newspaper Groupon PROOF

"The Independent Drama Society is an insurgency of thespians that deserve to be kept track of. I anticipate company’s progress with time as they lay their claim to a niche in the cog that is local Boston theatre."
    -Christopher M. Smith, Boston Theatre Reviewon PROOF
