“Stephen Karam’s Sons of the Prophet, directed by Anna Johnson for Cadence Theatre Company is yet another impressive and expertly directed production for this talented director. Karam’s emotional dramedy is creatively staged and artistically executed on the small stage of Theatre Gym at VA Rep.” Jen Maciulewicz–

“Cadence Theatre’s exploration of a family’s struggle is so good it hurts.” Dave Timberline, STYLE Weekly

“After so many years producing, directing and acting, I often find it difficult to not think in overly analytical or, perhaps, much too opinionated terms. But tonight, my wife Marcia and I were both immersed in a wonderful whirlpool of both intensely gritty and comical humanity lavished upon us by a great performance of Sons of the Prophet, the current production from Cadence Theatre Company, co-produced by Virginia Repertory Theatre. In short, the script is a well-crafted roller coaster—what I like to refer to as a “dramedy” (part drama, part comedy) of tightly interwoven relationships, circumstances and human experience, directed masterfully by Anna Senechal Johnson. The technical aspects are all excellently designed, powerfully executed and complimentary to action, sight and sound. And every actor was, dare I say, spot on. Three of my all-time Richmond favorites, Kimberly Jones-Clark, Jackie Goldberg Jones and Alan Sader blew my socks off, as always. But the other cast members were also incredibly effective and honest in portraying the sincere humanity that must be there for a script like this to work. And work it did! Bravo! In short, go see this show!” Larry Gard, Artistic Director, Carpenter Science Theatre
