"The Good Doctor is IDS’s final production. But what a marvelous thing it is."
-EDGE Boston, on THE GOOD DOCTOR
"I give them a clean bill of health and look forward to watching them germinate in other incubators around town. Break a leg, IDS!"
-BroadwayWorld.com, on THE GOOD DOCTOR
"The Independent Drama Society’s final show utilizes the comedic talents to go out with a laugh for the audience and a whimper for the characters. A fun weekend of comic observations of the pain and guile of the human condition.”
-New England Theatre Geek, on THE GOOD DOCTOR
"Few local fringe troupes could assemble a cast this large, and probably even fewer would attempt Chekhov - even by way of Simon. The scene will miss the Independent Drama Society - and I will, too."
-EDGE Boston, on EURYDICE
"As poignant as it is fanciful, not many works hone in on the preciousness of love like Eurydice."
-Boston Herald, on EURYDICE
"You’ve never seen [the myth] through this particular lens before...part Greek tragedy, part dramatic improv with a touch of Fellini-inspired surrealism."
-The South End Patch, on EURYDICE
"A fun, circus-y event. The cast is exuberant, their versatile talent and boundless energy filled with joie de vivre, in this commedia dell’arte presentation."
-Theater Mirror, on EURYDICE
"Formidable performances prove that a new generation of professional actors are on the rise."
-New England Theatre Geek, on EURYDICE
"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."
-Hub Review, on GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS
"The company’s continued selection of worthwhile works demonstrates their taste, and their production value rivals companies who have been around a lot longer."
-Boston Theatre Review, on 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."-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."
-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."
-Hub Review, on PROOF
"The Independent Drama Society proves itself to be a prime company to watch."
-Boston Arts Review, on PROOF
