Reviews:

"This is a ‘best of’ Fringe’ contender...This thespian trio brings such intensity to their individual characters that no audience member will fail to be personally touched by their powerful portrayals...‘MUTE’ is a MUST-SEE!"

Ontario Arts Review

 

"Mute became increasingly emotional and I had great desire for the characters to find happiness in their lives...I thought all three cast members were extremely strong and brought the depths of their characters to life."
