“Tryouts flows with elegance and the constant question of who these characters are, though more compellingly, what these female characters represent . . . a show that can be seen on multiple occasions to discover the references and metaphors, Tryouts presents a deep level of symbolism and entertainment.”

"This episodic and fractured narrative was full of angst and kinetic images of bodies in motion."
