quotes about the show

With just two appealing performers, compelling music and a searching, intelligent script...Expatriate delivers on all counts...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
