“the astonishing, dancelike movement (by Camille A. Brown) that expresses the game without mimicking it — all contribute to the feeling that we’re learning something new, but also in new ways.”
- The New York Times 

“Camille A. Brown, who provided the wonderful (and Tony-nominated) choreography for another play, “Choir Boy,” is equally kinetic in her work here. Together, she and MacKinnon give a semblance of the game,  often played out at the edges of the stage,”
- The Wrap 

“we can’t forget the superb choreography, with an appropriately murky undertone, by Camille A. Brown”
- NY Stage Review 

“ Well-choreographed by Camille A. Brown”
- DC Theater Scene 

“The games themselves... vividly rendered in choreographic shorthand (by Camille A. Brown) making full use of the actors’ smooth, confident physicality.”
-Theater News Online

“graceful, vigorous pantomime choreographed by Camille A. Brown, known for her ravishing work on Choir Boy and 2017’s Broadway revival of Once On This Island.”
