Jubilee seems to work to remind us that, though we might swath ourselves in gingham and pleats and take first prize at the church fashion show, we are all just bodies designed to move closer to another...a commendable night of theater, as sporty as it is sexy and as razor-sharp at it is wild.

-Elena Passarello, Austinist

It's a very specific skill, figuring out precisely what it'll take to make seemingly any group of people deeply uncomfortable. It also seems to be one of the crucial parts of what makes Rubber Repertory's work so transformative and life-altering for those who participate.

 -Dan Solomon, The Austin Chronicle

I spent most of "Jubilee" wondering what in the world I was supposed to say or think about it. What was I to make of the human pyramid singing "Babes in Arms," the mutant monster fashion show, the anti-communist U.S. army chant, the lines from Georg Buchner's "Danton's Death" shouted at the audience, and the fact that the waifish cast spends most of the performance in their underwear?

-Cate Blouke, Austin -American Statesman
