“…a haunting, wise, political and personally searing show, a work that will resonant with anyone with a family history of escape and a piece that has the guts to try and get inside of the head of…a perpetrator of crimes against humanity.” Chicago Tribune

“Cambodian Rock Band, Lauren Yee’s intense, highly original, richly theatrical play with music is now in a brilliantly realized production at Victory Gardens Theater vividly directed by Marti Lyons.” - WTTW

Marti Lyons's skillful direction makes joy blare from the amps even as tragedy screams from the dialogue…At the intersection of tragedy, rock, and comedy, Victory Gardens has launched one of the best plays of the year.” - Chicago Reader
