“Ms. Moïse has written a thoughtful narrative laden with observations about childhood, black identity in the United States and abroad, and the cost of show business on performers.” -The New York Times

“[Expatriate is] a beautiful spoken word/ song cycle/ play/ choreopoem about identity, nationality, and fierce love. And just about the most diverse audience (in every way) that I've had the pleasure of seeing a show with in ages.” -Ilana Brownstein, Founding Dramaturg of Playwrights’ Commons

Expatriate is aesthetically sophisticated and profound. Lenelle uses beauty and humor the way another artist might use brittle intellect or howling anger.” -Abe Rybeck, Artistic Director of The Theater Offensive
