Kate, The Wild Party, Studio Theatre Secondstage



"The best work comes from Tatum, whose Kate [The Wild Party, Studio Theatre Secondstage]is a tragic case of opportunism undermined by booze and lust." 

                                       William Triplett, The Washington Post


In SCENA Theatre's Iphigeneia in Tauris, Tatum and the chorus "are five interchangeable ghosty-beasts in one. They do such a good job that their real-life counterparts surely deserve individuation."
